August 2019 (Eau Claire, WI) -- Chippewa Valley Montessori Charter School will host its 4th annual  Footslog on Saturday, October 5, 2019 at Lowes Creek County Park in Eau Claire. The event will kick off  at 8:00 a.m. with the 5K rail run/walk starting at 9:00 a.m. and the family- friendly one mile nature walk  beginning at 10:30 a.m.  Montessori is a fast-growing, popular educational method across the country and has been established for  years in many parts of our globe. It all began in 1912 with Dr. Maria Montessori, who believed in the  innate, inborn, desire of all children to learn. Beautiful classrooms, engaging materials, and well-prepared  learning environments developed. Montessori focuses on the whole child: the academic, social,  emotional, physical and moral needs are nurtured. The student’s education is responsive to each child’s  potential.  At the Chippewa Valley Montessori Charter School, students work at their own pace, alone or in groups,  during long blocks of work time. Children are allowed to pursue their innate desire to learn, developing  concentration, self-discipline and self-esteem. Teachers guide students in a peaceful and engaging  atmosphere, carefully observing each child’s progress and introducing new lessons as appropriate.  Montessori materials are multi-sensory, sequential and self- correcting. Children use these materials  independently, repeatedly and with deep concentration. They emerge from this spontaneous activity  renewed and with a profound sense of inner satisfaction.  The school’s parent group association and parent volunteers will produce this race. Money raised will be  used for purchasing classroom supplies, funding field trips and providing support at school-related  functions.
