Dear Keystone Families,

Fall has finally arrived in Arizona! We are sure everyone is happy to welcome the cooler weather. One of the many beautiful features of our campus is the ability to have most of our classrooms transform into open-air environments with the raising of the bay doors. There is a beauty in nature that aids each child's development, and by opening our classrooms, we allow children to experience nature's peace while they are absorbed in their work.

Dr. Montessori believed a strong connection between the child and nature should be embraced and enhanced whenever possible. She said, "There is no description, no image in any book that is capable of replacing the sight of real trees, and all the life to be found around them, in a real forest. Something emanates from those trees which speaks to the soul, something no book, no museum is capable of giving." While Keystone is not located in the forest, we have cultivated our natural areas with our student's needs in mind and support Dr. Montessori's belief that a child's education is enhanced in the presence of nature.

When was the last time we took a moment to sit in the peace of the outdoors and truly enjoy our surroundings? Sometimes in our hurried lives, the mountains become part of the background and don't draw more than a passing glance at the stop light. The birds perched on the cactus sing, and we may not hear their notes as we drive past. We can draw strength and calm by taking the smallest moment to appreciate the natural beauty around us. Take that walk in the evening, plan a family hike to touch the mountain top, and allow your child to lead you and view the world through their eyes for a while. It will be time well spent, and you will find yourself in awe of how your child still sees wonder in every little thing they discover.

In Health and Peace,

Laura Hertzler                            Stefan Linder
