On Wednesday, Aug. 21 the students of East Cooper Montessori Charter School returned back to school to an extravagant welcome. Streets lined with faculty, staff and middle school students adorned with hats, glasses and welcome signs, greeted the upper and lower elementary students arriving for their first day back after summer break. The excitement included a musical soundtrack hand-picked by the principal to energize and inspire the students for their first day.

“We wanted our students to feel our excitement about being back at school,” says Principal Swanigan. She went on to say, “Students returning for their first day of school may have mixed emotions. We wanted to set the tone of a welcoming school that encourages community and enthusiasm.”

East Cooper Montessori Charter School is a free, public school that serves 263 children in first through eighth grade. The school’s mission is to provide a rigorous Montessori education, guiding children toward academic excellence, lifelong learning and stewardship of the greater community.
