Welcome to #HersheyAlumni Week

My name is Makella and I am the Hershey Montessori School Alumni Coordinator. From age three to fourteen (1993 to 2003), I had the joy of attending Hershey Montessori School. My time at Hershey Montessori School impacted me in so many ways and it continues to influences my life and work today. It has been a great experience reaching out to other alumni to hear life updates  – how they are changing the world, making an impact on those around them, and how they also see the influence of their Montessori education on their lives today.

These posts coincide with Hershey Montessori School’s Alumni Week where we will be sharing with the greater Hershey Montessori School community some memories, quotes, photos, and updates. The alumni are excited to share the ways that Hershey Montessori School continues to be a presence in our lives, and it’s a way for the families of current students or future students to get a glimpse into life after Hershey Montessori School. Our goal is that this week is a reassurance that the investment they’ve made in their child’s future is important and life changing. If you’d like to see some of the posts, please like and follow Hershey Montessori School on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram (@hersheymontessori).

This past year, some alumni and myself had a ‘Virtual Reunion’ where we scheduled a time to chat online. It was a great time to catch up with other alumni. Even though we may not have gone to school with each other at the same time, as alumni, we all have this shared experience – one that hopefully more children can have in their lives, one that continues to impact us and the way we see the world, and one that connects us with a legacy of people who have had the opportunity to learn and grow at Hershey Montessori School. What a gift!

One of Hershey Montessori School’s goals is not only to continue to keep in touch with alumni, but to provide places where alumni can stay connected with each other and the deep Hershey Montessori School community. There is an alumni website, a Facebook group, and a LinkedIn group. If you attended Hershey Montessori School, please connect! We would love to hear from you! It is so exciting hearing your stories. Please continue to keep us updated on your lives, and please reach out to your classmates to get in touch as well!

Lastly, if you have an experience, story, reflection, photo, or memory to share, please email me at mwebster@hershey-montessori.org.

Thank you for allowing me to share with you!
