We Invite You To Refer Your Friends and Family!

We Invite You To Refer Your Friends and Family!

Our first ever referral drive has kicked off and we are asking you to tell your friends about us!

We want to share more Montessori with more families who value quality education the same as you do. We believe you can help us find them.

Hershey meets the usual checklist that many families look for in a school, such as individualized attention, great teachers, an excellent education, and a safe school environment. However, Hershey also offers a personalized academic pace based on the natural development of the whole child, scientific teaching methods, stress reducing connections to nature, meaningful social connections, and a strong emphasis on critical thinking and community.

It’s not surprising that parents often cite the intentional community we create as one of the most compelling reasons to enroll. That is why we are seeking referrals from those who know and love Hershey. Families who share the same goals for their children create a community that benefits everyone – children, parents, and teachers alike.

Over the last 40 years our parents and students have been our best source for growing our community. Sharing good news and stories about Hershey Montessori School to trusted family, friends and neighbors has helped to create and build upon the close-knit Hershey community that we all cherish.

In gratitude for every referred visitor who tours our school, we are placing the name of the referrer in a quarterly drawing for a basket filled with beautifully handcrafted items made by our microeconomy students at our Huntsburg campus, along with a Hershey Montessori apparel item.

Growing together means that we will get to experience more of what is so beautiful to Hershey – our connections.

Each year, we are moved by the outcomes we see in our students as they grow and develop as creative and resilient human beings. Now more than ever, we are compelled to provide more Montessori to more children. Help us to reach more children and adolescents with the Montessori methods and ideals that we all know and love: grace, peace, respect, unity, and the like.

We hope you will share in our passion for this growth.Hershey open house visitor day

Let’s grow our community together!

 


 

Hershey Alumni Return, Provide Support to Students

Hershey Alumni Return, Provide Support to Students

Members of the graduating classes of 2018 and 2019 recently returned home to Hershey Montessori School for its annual Alumni Day. 

The graduates hosted a panel discussion with current students where they reflected on their time at Hershey and answered questions about life after high school. The graduates went on to share valuable insights regarding their transition to college, making new friends, and various tips to help students as they continue their own journey in the years to come.

The alumni were also gracious in their time as they participated in a Q&A session with Hershey parents via video conference.

We are grateful to all who were able to join us for this informative, heart-warming, welcome home event.

Many thanks to Mathematics, Business and Microeconomy Guide, Jennifer Snead, for organizing this event, and to all of the alumni for taking the time to share their wisdom with the Hershey community.

Three Hershey Montessori Calculus students recently attended Youngstown State University’s MathFest, where they competed with other high school students from all around Ohio. Afterward, the group, along with Math Guide Jennifer Snead, attended various workshops aimed at exploring additional math concepts. Some of the available options included Mathematics of Origami, Archimedes, and the Mathematics of Cells in Your Heart. It was a fun math day, and an event Hershey Montessori School plans to continue participation in the years to come. Congratulations ladies. You represent us well!
