Texas Agriculture Department Grant!

Super exciting news for Cypresswood Montessori!

Our school has qualified for a Grant from Texas Agriculture Department
for the year September 2016-2017!!

This award is a recognition that will support Garden based Learning, nutrition education classroom lessons, physical activities enhancement, and other learning opportunities allowing children to have a positive attitude towards food and physical activities.

The school is planning to have a planter for each Primary Class, and the students will be involved from preparing soil, to seeds, to taking care, to harvesting and then to enjoy what they have grown.

The physical activities will involve having a projector to project “you tube activities” done by Jack Hartmann and all students will exercise together morning and afternoon to get their workout for the day!

Please check out Jack Hartmann! You will love his exercise program!

The classrooms will also have added resources (books, puzzles, etc.) to help the students understand and learn more about nutrition and exercise.
