Citizenship is one of the skills Oak Farm Montessori School strives to develop in their portrait of a graduate. Students learn at an early age that not only can they make a difference in their local community, but it the world around them. Mentoring opportunities begin as young as five and carry on throughout their time at the school: reading to younger students, collecting care packages for local organizations, volunteering at the food pantry or seeding our own campus to restore native plants.
High School teacher, Jenn Jordan, shared the need for diapers at a local teen pregnancy organization, YoungLives, and it spurred an immediate response from many of the students. OFMHS Senior, Mariah Clark, is spearheading the collection and says, “We feel passionate about helping this organization because they assist teen moms in providing necessary resources and support in order to raise happy healthy children! Oak Farm Montessori has encouraged us to be civic-minded and this is just one way we are being involved in the greater community!”
If you would like to support these students, please drop off diapers of any size at the high school. This drive will run from February 1st – 12th and they hope to collect 1500 diapers.
