Mashapaug Pond is the only remaining natural pond in Providence, RI. This video was made for the 7th Annual Urban Pond Procession, which took place in May 2014. The Urban Pond Procession is a grassroots group of artists, scientists, educators and other community members working to foster environmental stewardship and sense of place through art in Providence and Cranston, RI.
The Montessori Community School of RI is a socio-economically diverse school that inspires children to cultivate confidence, inner discipline, a love of learning, and a spirit of connectedness. The school honors the uniqueness and innate goodness of each child, and aims to be the first Montessori School in Providence to serve all families regardless of economic status.
