Field Trips: Each year there are multiple field trips for outdoor education and community building. This is a picture of Elementary II waking up at Saint Mary overlooking Glacier National Park.
Elementary I Field Trip to Lone Pine State Park
1st, 2nd, 3rd Year Students
Montessori Magic: Our students have many diverse talents and we give them the opportunity to share them each spring with our talent show. These students are performing swing dancing moves they learned during our "winter PE" classes.
Athletics: Our students do calisthenics and run a 1/3 mile lap every morning our track isn't covered with snow. We focus on healthy minds and bodies. Consequently, our students are very active in and out of school.
Here a team of Elementary I students have just won a relay race at the annual Kila Invitational Track Meet

Elizabethan Festival: Each year the students select and perform one of William Shakespeare's classic plays.
Here Elementary I performs Macbeth.
Elementary II performs The Tempest.
Physics: As part of our study of the states of matter (solid, liquid, gas), we explored substances that don't fit neatly into any one category. We made non-Newtonian fluids. These students are pictured with flubber. It can flow like liquid and bounce like rubber!
We also made oobleck which flows like a liquid and behaves like a solid when compressed. Placing it on a speaker which produced sound wave pressures caused it to come alive!
