  • "In 2017-18, Washington Montessori won a Healthy Schools grant, which means that we serve healthy school lunches in our cafe and healthy afternoon snacks of fresh fruit in the classrooms. We have two AIM zones - areas of the school where students can reflect on their feelings while exercising, stretching, or taking a mental boost break. We infuse all classrooms with as much movement as possible through GoNoodle, an online resource parents can also access at home."
