What is life like after Hershey Montessori School? On March 16, four alumni of Hershey Montessori School will be participating in a Panel Event at the Concord Campus at 6:30 PM. We will share some of their life experiences and perspectives after leaving the Montessori method of education, and answer your questions about our life choices such as college and/or careers and giving back to the community.

Now that our aspirations for our Strategic Plan have been defined, it’s time to develop action steps to achieve them.
Members of the Hershey community will meet on Saturday, September 10, 2016, from 9:00 am to 12:00 pm at the Concord campus.
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 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.
We’re happy to announce the opening of the Hershey Celebrates CLE! Auction Catalog. Let the bidding begin!
The catalog will enable you to preview all of our exciting Silent and Live Auction items for this year’s Spring Benefit.

Please join us for an enjoyable evening to celebrate a historic step for Hershey Montessori School and for the Montessori education system. At this time, spurred by great demand from students, families and educators from all over the world, Hershey Montessori School will add a high school. Upon completion of the capital campaign, Hershey Montessori School will represent one of the world’s first fully-realized Montessori schools to serve a complete continuum for infants through 18 years of age with a land-based residential option.
The campaign to fund this endeavor will support the high quality Montessori programs for infants, toddlers, preschool and elementary aged children at the Concord Campus, and for adolescents at the Huntsburg Campus, provide a seamless response to the developmental continuum of a student’s needs as they grow.
Presently, over 500 schools have modeled their programs from Hershey Montessori School’s program. The information to be garnered from the new high school will also be shared with educators and replicated to benefit children all over the world. This is an accolade not only for the region, but for our educational system in the United States and abroad. The potential gains students will realize from this endeavor is unprecedented.
We hope to see you on May 12th to learn more about this exciting project and to participate in the fun!
