We are the kids of the Montessori School of Pullman, and we approved this message!

Our primary students, ages 3 – 6, are currently inspired to learn about North America, and many of them are busy making North America books (see photos above, for cultural work about North America)  Our elementary students have been focused on the election for President of the United States of America.

Today, on election day 2016, as President Barack Obama comes to the end of his second term, the kindergarten and elementary students gathered in small groups to discuss their platforms for when they run for president, some time around 2044 and 2048.

“What are the biggest problems facing our nation?”

We have some strong environmentalists among our children. 

“Our biggest problem is water.  In some areas, we don’t have enough water and other places are flooding.  This is bad for people and animals.”

“Everyone needs clean water.”

“We need to plant more trees.”

 We also have children who are very concerned over helping others.

“There are people with no homes and not enough good food.”

“Some people don’t have enough money.”

“There are too many people in jails.”

Other children are most concerned with peace. 

“Crime is a big problem, and violence. “

“What is something we should change about our country?  What is something that would make Americans have a better happier life?”

This is where we heard our children who strongly believe in social justice come through.

“Everyone should have the same rights.”

“We need to use our words to solve our problems not our bodies.”

“We need to change our world through peace.”

Other ideas for improving the lives of Americans:

“We need to recycle.”

“We need to pick up litter.”

“We need to plant more trees.”

“We need to build more homes.”

“Don’t quit!  People need to keep going.”

“Everyone should go to a good school.”

And finally, What would you do if you were president?”

“I would help everyone who needs help.”

“I would give people money who need money.”

“I would give money, food, clothes and homes to the poor.”

“I would build a ginormous reservoir and connect it to all of the pipes.”

“I would help people go to school.”

“I would make it so that everyone can come into America.”

I love to hear the ideas of our young problem solvers.  Maybe one day in the future, one of our students will be asking for our votes.
