Bike to School Day!

May is Bike to School Month!

Bike to School Month is time to showcase the benefits of biking and encourage students to give biking a try for the first time!  Biking helps us reduce our carbon footprint, engage with our neighbors, get exercise and feel energized.  Bike to School programs are a way to foster life-long healthy habits for the whole family.  Starting the school day with kid-powered transportation ensures that children are awake and ready to learn. We are in the 4rd year of own program here at Pacific Crest and invite you to join in on this month long celebration. May is also the time for Cycles in Nature, a bicycle program involving our Middle School students.

Parent Community Education Night with Dr. Steve Hughes

The event is free to PCS families and open to the public for $10 pre-registration; $30 at the door. Pre-register by March 14th at info@pacificcrest.org.

“Montessori education presents a radically different – and radically effective – educational approach that may be the best method we’ve got to ensure the optimal cognitive, social, and emotional development of every child.

Montessori: An Education for Life

Dr. Hughes will discuss how Montessori education from Primary through Middle school implements what current neuroscience knows about optimizing social, emotional, cognitive and academic development.

Montessori education -- through Middle school -- builds the foundational capacities for collaborative, adaptive leaders, readying themselves for the unique challenges of the 21st century.

About Steve Hughes

Steve Hughes, PhD, ABPdN is a pediatric neuropsychologist and director of The Center for Research on Developmental Education. He is also past president of the American Academy of Pediatric Neuropsychology.   His research interests are in the area of attention and executive functioning and the role that early childhood education can play in promoting the formation of these essential capabilities.  
Dr. Hughes is Chair of the Association Montessori Internationale’s Global Research Committee and speaks all over the world to audiences interested in learning more about the cognitive developmental benefits of authentic Montessori education.
