Festival of Lights 2017

On Friday, January 20th while the nation observed the changing of presidency in our country, the children of Nia House gathered to sing songs of peace, community, and to bring light to the dark night with a parade of lanterns. It was a tremendous comfort to join as community and to feel promise in the words of the children's songs:

Stand together and the people will find a way. Stand together and the people will find a way. Stand together and the people will find a way. People will find a way, I do believe.

The staff of Nia House was honored to celebrate as a community the light in each of our children and for the opportunity to put into practice Dr. Maria Montessori's vision of peace through education.
