Montessori held its 2nd Olympiad last October 23, 2014 at the SVM Quadrangle with the theme “ Discovering Your Inner Potential. ”   The event aimed for discovering the Montessorians ’ skills not only in terms of literary and speaking proficiency but also in their academic aptitude for the different particular learning areas such as Science, Information Technology and Mathematics. Students from Elementary and Junior Middle Division were chosen to compete for each category. The Quiz Bee for Science and Mathematics were divided into three categories: Grade School Category A (Grades 1 - 3), Grade School Category B (Grades 4 - 6), and Junior Middle Division.   The participants were also challenged in the Robotics, Web Design, Digital Imaging and Power Point Presentation events were they were asked to conceptualize and create their own.   The Speech Competition was categorized into Declamation and Extemporaneous Speaking, were participants of the former came from grade school and high school and the latter from high school only. Later that day, the top three winners for each event were announced and awarded with medals. ∞     The early morning atmosphere of October 24, 2014 was filled with excitement as the Casa students came to school dressed up in Halloween costumes and cartoon character outfits, all ready to collect their treats.  2   Message from the President I feel extremely fortunate to welcome you in the mid of the Academic Year 2014 –  2015! SVM is a community of determined administrators, faculty, staff, and parents striving to give the highest quality education possible that will make a difference for our students. I am confident to say that education is different in SVM, where real learning happens and the students are able to get a glimpse of real life. We unceasingly goal to yearly increase student achievement and prepare our students to be productive citizens inside and outside SVM who are able to meet the challenges of the 21st Century with confidence and assurance. Thus, we constantly seek to improve our educational program to better meet the academic needs of our students, including their social and virtual needs. Hence, we are currently maintaining a Facebook Fan Page where news and updates are regularly posted and a fully operational website which they can visit anytime. We have also revived the official newsletter of SVM, Topnotch, which is a collaborative effort of the teachers and students. We firmly believe that schools are a reflection of the community and we work very hard at SVM to ensure that our school reflects positively in our community. Consequently, we constantly promote parent involvement on the student’s education. Research proves that what parents do at home greatly influences children’s academic performance. Attitudes toward reading, learning and developing good study habits are initially developed at home. Therefore, parent involvement at home is constantly linked with higher grades, better attendance and positive behaviors. I am proud to say that SVM’s 21 years of existence are years of excellence. And our administration, faculty, and staff are looking forward for a more productive and enriching years of learning of your children here at SVM. SVM Celebrates UN 2014   By Ms. Izza Quinones   S.V. Montessori celebrated the United Nations last October 18, 2014 with the theme “ Colorful Dances of the World. ”   The SVM Quadrangle was jam - packed with excited students and families, who were all present to cheer and show their support to the contestants. The activity started at exactly 8 a.m. with the invocation led by selected Grade 5 ̶Dignity students, followed by the singing of the Philippine National Anthem. Ms. Izza Quinones, the Chairman of the UN celebration, gave the welcome remarks.   The program proper commenced with a colorful parade of the nations of all SVM students from Casa to Junior Middle Division. It was followed by the presentation of altered folk dances of different nations. The contestants were once again introduced and were tested through the Question & Answer portion.   The last part of the program was the most awaited part—the awarding of winners. Minor awards were first given, namely: Best in Talent, Best Performance in Production Number, Best in Ramp Modelling, People ’   s Choice Award On - Line Voting and In - Campus Votes, Photogenic   and Best in Costume . Marcus Jade Tanauan and Angel Princess Cataluña won Little Mr. & Little Ms. United Nations, respectively. While Jacob Miles Tanauan and Yvon Albegas were declared Mr. & Ms. United Nations, respectively.    A Pre - Pageant was held last October 15 where the contestants showcased their talents, modelling skills, and costumes.   Winners were determined by the Board of Judges—Ms. Soledad Vasquez, Mr. Rod Steven Vasquez, Mr. Ricky Adorna, Ms. Cristialyn Baraño, and Ms. Glaiza Azurin—who were chosen to assess the participants in terms of wit, beauty and confidence. ∞   Mr. and Ms. UN 2014 Jacob Miles Tanauan and Yvon Albegas (Left Photo) and   Little Mr. & Little Ms. UN 2014 Marcus Jade Tanauan and Angel Princess Cataluña (Right Photo) were awarded by judges Ms. Soledad Vasquez and Mr. Rod Steven Vasquez.   Visit and Like SVM Fan Page i     Rod Steven O.

Magdalo, respectively.   Equipped with their own cleaning materials, the JMD IV students were all set for the clean - up. Each were assigned with an area to clean.   S.V. Montessori believes that the sense of responsibility cannot only be taught inside the four walls of the classroom. That ’ s why SVM highly encourages its students to actively participate in community service activities as it teaches responsibility not only for themselves, but for other people as well. It also helps them understand the impact of their actions toward their community.  As an old adage says, it ’ s never too early to teach children the value of community service. Children who get involved in civic activities at an early age immediately learn the value of giving back to others and form positive habits that can stay with them for life. The JMD IV students may have been rewarded for their hard work with refreshments only but the awareness and values they had gained from the activity will serve them now and years later as they leave SVM and face the new challenges of their student life. ∞   The JMD IV students in action, serving the communities of Brgys. Maharlika and Magdalo through a clean - up drive. The students were guided by JMD Coordinator Ms. Cristialyn Baraño.   “Small acts when multiplied by millions of people can transform the world.” - Howard Zinn  4   Social Studies Day at SVM By Ms. Liza Dejucos   S.V.
