We're glad to announce that a new logo has been officially implemented by Fairbanks Montessori School this month. The logo was decided upon by the help of our school’s students, families, and staff.
The new logo features a beautiful water color fox, created by local artist Aisling Meehan. The fox is believed to be a guide and honored for its wisdom. The fox is also a symbol of sharpened mental skills and awareness.
In the Montessori Method each teacher is referred to as a “guide”. The Guide prepares the classroom (called the prepared environment) filled with lessons to give knowledge to the child. The Guide and prepared environment helps to sharpen the child’s mental skills. The child then gains the wisdom to guide themselves and others; think of older children teaching younger, but also being a “guide” as in a contributing member of the global community.
