This past week at Island Montessori Academy we recognized our community heroes.

The school was lucky to have the Marco Island Post Office, the Marco Island Police Department, the Marco Island Fire Department, Kriger Orthodontics and Allied Pavers present.

Each professional representative talked about what it takes to be successful in their profession, the training it takes and what they do on a daily basis.

Students were able to climb into a post office delivery truck, sit in the driver’s seat of the fire truck, and explore a police vehicle.

Each year IMA holds a community heroes week for students to meet and greet our local heroes.

The Island Montessori Academy strives to create an educational community of families that inspire children to develop inner discipline, self-assurance, and a love of learning.
