We continue to invite you to donate to the Hershey Montessori School Capital Campaign as we move toward our ultimate fundraising goals but we wanted to take a moment to thank all the families and friends as well as the Elliot-Montminy Family for the amazing outpouring of support for this campaign during the Elliot-Montminy Family Challenge Grant time frame.  Thanks to you, we raised $40,000 for the Hershey Montessori Capital Campaign!

The campaign benefits both campuses of the school. The campaign’s goal is to cover the costs of construction for the upper school classroom building on the Huntsburg Campus for the new 10th, 11th and 12th grades, provide program and capital improvements for the Concord Campus as well as initiate a study to most effectively respond to increasing enrollment in a long-term, strategic way. The campaign also will raise additional funds for the endowment to increase sustainability for the whole school and to expand financial aid.

This is a historic campaign as once successful, Hershey Montessori School will be the first school in the world to offer a complete continuum of Montessori education that most closely replicates Dr. Maria Montessori’s vision which includes an option of a residential component for adolescents on a working farm.

Screen-Free Week 2016

Screen-Free Week 2016

 Screen Free Week is when people around the country will turn OFF TV, video and mobile games, and other screens they use for entertainment, and turn ON the world around them!  Take time to think, read, play, daydream, explore nature, enjoy family and friends–do all this and so much more when you spend the week unplugged.  This year, in support of Screen Free Week, HMS will again be offering families some fun, “screen free” activities at school, both after school and in the evening.  Information was sent home last week via a flyer in your family boxes.  Perhaps your children will come up with some great ideas of their own!

See the pdf below for this year’s offerings.

Welcome from Head of School

Welcome from Head of School

Welcome to Hershey Montessori School’s new website.

Our desire with this portal is to inform, engage and inspire you to discover more about Montessori and about the Hershey community. It is exciting to see this site launch also because it reflects the talents of our staff and the gifts that come with observation.

I am so grateful for the creativity, clarity of vision and articulation of Golnar Parry, Director of Development, and Kathy Beech, Director of Admissions, who oversaw the creation of this website. It beautifully presents the essence of Montessori principles and of the opportunities to grow, from infancy through adolescence, in our specially prepared environments. Through careful and intentional observation of the child, we can then offer a meaningful personalized response. The gift of observation is reflected in this website as the photographs reveal to you a glimpse of the child through the observations of our talented staff, and the lens of their cameras, in their day to day presence with students.

We look forward to adding layers to this website to engage our parents and share ideas about ways that we can support the child’s development at every marvelous stage.

“Scientific observation then has established that education is not what the teacher gives; education is a natural process spontaneously carried out by the human individual, and is acquired not by listening to words but by experiences upon the environment.”
