Soaring Wings celebrates 30 years of educating local kids


It was a milestone school year for Soaring Wings International Montessori School, marking our 30th year in Park City and ending with a very successful Childrens Fair. We thank the parents, teachers and students who made the Fair possible, with special gratitude to Jill Warburton and Stephanie Murray who have been working to make the Fair a success for the better half of the school year.

Warm appreciation to the dozens of families who sponsored and supported the Fair. Heartfelt thanks to the community sponsors who support us so generously year after year. The annual Fair is organized by the teachers, parents and students of the school offering a day to celebrate the child while raising funds to support the organizations of our Childrens Planet Fund. Students choose these organizations and then budget and donate the proceeds, giving them an experience in making a difference in their world. Over the past 30 years we have noticed that our graduates carry this community spirit with them wherever they go.

Thank you also to the Park City community for the warmth and generosity with which you have supported the school over the past 30 years and to The Park Record for highlighting our growth. We have gone from just two students in 1987 to over 100 from infants through 6th grade. We have had the honor of working with some of the most thoughtful, talented and giving teachers, parents and children on the planet. We have occupied many locations all over town before we came happily to rest in our current Old Ranch Road location, with the support of another incredible Soaring Wings family (thanks, Solim and Jackie!). The journey has been a dream come true.

Although the population has grown, the small town atmosphere remains. Park City is still a happy, healthy, safe place where children grow up with an attachment to family, friends and the natural world. No matter where I travel Im always happy to come home. Thanks, Park City! Namaste’
