Butler School Alumni

Butler School Alumni Graduates of Butler Montessori take what they have learned and apply it to the rest of their life. Our Alumni page is a way for these graduates to stay connected to our community.

Join us to share the value of growing up Montessori! You’ve graduated… You’ve left the nest… Or maybe you’ve been gone from Butler Montessori for years… But to us, you are still a part of our community. That is why we have created this page. Here you can connect with other Butler alum, share memories and photos of your time within our walls (or anywhere on campus), and stay connected to what is going on at the school right now. We’ll post updates on alumni successes, changes at the school, staff updates, and our fundraising efforts. We encourage all of our alumni to use this page, chat, post, and share. After all, you are acorns forever and this will always be your school -- so keep in touch, even if it is only digitally. A Montessori education is forever, and growing up Montessori doesn’t stop because you have graduated. Follow all that we are doing #dontyouwishthiswasyourschool, #growingupmontessori and #acornsforever. Or follow this page and check back often. Butler Montessori, previously Butler School, is a private Montessori school in Montgomery County Maryland that serves children ages 18 months through 8th grade.

Mission: Our mission is to provide a place where Butler Montessori families can stay connected to their community and continue to give back by sharing their stories and experiences with each other.

Impromptu Music Recital

Do you recall a time when you were inspired to learn something new after seeing someone else doing it? The ability to readily interact with students at various levels is one of the wonderful things about Montessori philosophy. Our 50th Anniversary is only a year away. Please share your story with us. We would LOVE to hear from you!

The benefits of drawing are many, the fact that it is fun means it is easy to do...as long as you make space for it in your life. Maria Montessori knew the benefits of drawing and the developing brain. Scientists have shown the many benefits to continuing this practice throughout ones life. Unfortunately with our competitive, fast paced lives it often gets pushed to the side. We encourage everyone to find some time to draw, you may find it helps you in ways you haven't yet imagined!
See this interesting article for some science on drawing http://ow.ly/oin030lXP3R

It's the first day of school and as we start back to our hectic lives it is important to remember that we are role models for our children. What they see us doing in a stressful morning situation is the lesson they will carry away. We encourage you to take a deep breath as you turn into our bucolic campus driveway and use that few minutes to set a good example of Grace & Courtesy (a Montessori staple) for your child.
