The elementary students at Marlboro Montessori went on their first field trip to the Princeton University Art Museum. Before entering the museum, the children had the opportunity to explore the campus. Princeton University was founded before the American Revolution!

Mother and Son Night
It was a night filled with snakes, lizards, a rabbit, a 50 pound turtle, and a dog with an identity crisis! (who thought it was a “Bee!”) and a duck who just “quacked” us up! What more can a boy ask for? … Pizza, of course!
Brian Wilde's,"Party on the Wild Side", entertained the children with his knowledge and love for the variety of species. He spoke about habitats, origins, and personalities of the animals.
The evening was informative, engaging, and hands on.
Each child got to pet the animals and, in some cases, either rode it or wore it!
Brian also emphasized the importance in keeping the environment safe for all living things that share our planet.
