OMA is working to support MNW and our Montessori community as we near the date for the International Congress.  We can help find ways for your school and families to contribute.  The 2013 International Congress will be an amazing event for the world – Visit MNW’s website to stay involved  www.montessori-nw.org and visit the 2013 International Congress website:  www.montessoricongress.org to learn when the next planning meeting is happening.

This Congress is an International event for the whole Montessori community.  Collaboration is happening across associations with all of the leaders in the Montessori movement.  Portland is honored to be the chosen North American city – the first time the Congress has been in the USA in nearly 40 years

Here are current needs for volunteers:

Host a Home Stay for visiting Congress attendees – visit the Congress website for information.

There is a Glass Classroom in Pioneer Square on Wednesday, July 31st, from 11am – 2pm.  Maybe, you could help set-up or participate in this aspect.
