    Today, more than 100 Kohl's facility managers met at Penfield Montessori to donate their time and talents to renovate the school. Projects included painting, light installation, repairing walls, constructing storage shelving, creating a breastfeeding room for staff and families, and restoring the school’s entrance on Cherry Street. In addition, Kohl’s Wild Theater, a partnership between Kohl’s Cares and the Milwaukee County Zoo, performed for our students and taught about animals and conservation.  Kohl's, we cannot thank you enough! You truly transformed our school.

    This past Sunday, Oprah Winfrey discussed the epidemic of childhood trauma on 60 Minutes. She focused on the importance of changing the way we work with children who have significant behavioral issues by asking not what is wrong with the child, but what happened to the child to cause this behavior.  At Penfield Montessori, we are committed to providing trauma-informed care to our families. The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel highlighted our services in a recent story:
