Happy 15 years MSL!

MSL Community in 2014-2015

This post from last year’s Giving Tuesday, still rings true.
Below, a year is added, and a story retold:

By Marcia Kidd

On this Annual Fund Day of Giving, I look back on the past 15 years and the history of our young school. Being a part of the school from its first planning stages, I recall its fragile beginning – Thursday night meetings where a group of parents and staff, who described themselves as “ignorance on fire,”sat to discuss the ambitious goal of forming a viable Montessori school for their children. Over time, we would learn that starting a school was just the beginning, with much more work to follow. We hear of audacious goals that take hold in the hands of people with the vision and perseverance to transform a dream into reality. Montessori School of Louisville exists because of the vision, determination and incredible generosity of a small group of parents with a strong commitment to providing a Montessori education for their children. At this time, I would like to thank those people.

MSL was founded on the generosity of its families. The tradition of giving continues, as MSL friends and families, too many to mention here, year after year donate their time, talents and treasure to support the ongoing needs of a dream that began 15 years ago. Whether monetary donations to the Annual Fund or service to the community, these donations help to ensure that the vision of founding families continues and that education in an accredited Montessori school remains an option for families in the Louisville area.
