Kawartha Montessori School would like to bring a very exciting initiative to your attention.
We have recently displayed a brightly lit Pink Tower in the hallways - a larger scale version of the Pink Tower material in the Casa classroom. We are displaying this festive Pink Tower in support of Building the Pink Tower, a full-length documentary that aims to educate about the beauty and impact of an authentic Montessori education. The film also hopes to raise awareness about the place of Montessori in the education-reform debate currently taking place in the U.S., but is just as relevant here in Canada.
We encourage you to view the breathtaking trailer to learn more about the film, the filmmakers, and their vision: buildingthepinktower.org
You may also consider making a contribution to the film's Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign, which is running until December 18, 2013. They have asked Montessori communities around the world to contribute to assist them in funding the completion of the project. We have made a contribution as a school, and hope you will too!
We encourage you to view the trailer, and if you are so moved, to contribute to the campaign directly through the Indiegogo site, honouring someone special to you or your experience with Montessori. Every dollar moves the filmmakers closer to the completion of this very important resource for the Montessori movement.
