    Model Montessorians at HWMS

    The teachers at Hammond Westside Montessori select a Model Montessorian of the Month to be recognized for exhibiting characteristics that uphold the philosophy of Montessori Education.  These students produce quality work, mentor their peers, and respect themselves, others, and their environment. We celebrated our April and May Model Montessorians of the Month on Tuesday, May 17, 2016.
