The council of the Pacific Northwest Montessori Association had a wonderful planning retreat this past weekend! We are so excited for this upcoming year and all of the wonderful events we have planned to help further Montessori excellence in the Pacific Northwest. Much time was spent sharing about the amazing history of PNMA and many new council members were inspired and motivated to carry on the legacy of Mrs. Madeleine Justus, a founding member of this wonderful Montessori organization.
