My sister-in-law (who was once my college roommate) is a Montessori teacher. She teaches 3- through 6-year-olds at Mountain Laurel Montessori School in Front Royal, VA.
Recently, her school entered an Earth Day contest sponsored by Wal-Mart, and they've made it to the top 10 in the COUNTRY, no small feat for a little school.
They've made a video and written and essay, and now they need YOU to vote for them. The winning school receives $20,000!!! and they could really use it. So go here to vote for Mountain Laurel Montessori School, and don't forget to confirm your vote so it will count!
Be thankful ~
