Mt. Juliet Montessori Academy celebrated the end of the 2015-16 school year on Wednesday with a Field Day. The event was organized by the school's parent/teacher organization and carried a theme of first responders, such as races in firefighter boots and dressed like doctors. The school even received visits from police officers and firefighters throughout the day, before the event turned to water-play - with kids running through sprinklers and more. Parent Volunteer Gina Blair was happy to help the school's 60-plus students ages 18 month through 6th grade welcome summer vacation. The school was founded in 2007, according to Director Debi Miller. "Montessori is a non-traditional form of education. It is all hands-on. We do peer tutoring and its all individualized education. Kids have freedom, within limits, and they reach the mastery at their own pace," she explained. For more information on Mt. Juliet Montessori Academy visit mjmacademy.com.
