Eagles run most of our Learner Driven Community at Acton Academy.
Whether it’s studio self-governance and maintenance; Middle Schoolers shepherding Elementary Studio Eagles as Eagle Buddies; or Launchpadders leading Middle School Squads and creating Middle School Quests, there’s a constant stream of Eagles moving from one studio to another throughout the day.
Now Eagles have introduced Launchpad Montessori Quest Guides, where Launchpadders have taken complete responsibility for equipping our youngest Eagles with the tools and habits they need to become independent learners.
How is it working? Here’s one parent’s take:
“Something has clicked for our son. He’s feeling so positive about the Montessori Quest. He begged me to take him to get donuts to bring to school tomorrow for his fellow questers. I asked him why and he said: “it’s because of the new Launchpad Guides.” I hope they know their kindness is paying dividends already.”
Leading through serving. Learning through real world responsibility. Congratulations to our Launchpad Montessori Guides for helping those just starting their Hero’s Journeys.
We know it’s a kindness that will be paid forward for years to come.
