Ours is a program, then, that honors children, values inquiry, encourages exploration, allows for innovation, and celebrates ideas. Children in our school gain skills that allow them to be self-initiating, self-directing learners, as well as joyful, responsible, and independent beings.
A Movement in Remembrance
On 11 June, I will rune a 10 K. race for charity in Portsmouth, NH. All money collected via this website will be given to Sparhawk School in order to set up a scholarship to Sparhawk School in honor of Maryclaire.
Sparhawk is an innovative private school that aspires to enroll as many students as possible from diverse economic backgrounds. This scholarship will ensure that one more deserving young person has access to Sparhawk's progressive program. Sparhawk School ensures that students learn more than math or history; they also are actively and deliberately encouraged to become independent-minded and confident individuals.
Maryclaire had been involved in Sparhawk School since its foundation in 1993. It was her first job after graduating from Lesley College with her Master's degree. Teaching young children was so much more than a job for Maryclaire. It was her vocation. She sought always to reveal the magic and the beauty of the world to her students.
