Ohio Maple Madness Tour Stops at Hershey Montessori School

Ohio Maple Madness Tour Stops at Hershey Montessori School

Hershey Montessori School’s Huntsburg campus is participating in the 2022 Ohio Maple Madness Tour, which runs March 5th through 6th and March 12th through 13th. Hershey’s Sugarbush will be open to the public on Saturday, March 5th and Saturday, 12th from 10 am to 5 pm only. This annual event is organized by The Ohio Maple Producers Association, which serves all of Ohio’s maple producers by promoting the industry and Ohio’s rich maple heritage.

Hershey’s 97-acre Huntsburg campus is rich with maple trees that have long served as part of the school’s academic curriculum by teaching adolescent students the art and science of maple syrup production. Students also learn economic and entrepreneurial skills through the creation and selling of maple products and other homegrown or handmade items. Students make the items available for sale to the school community and to the public online, at area events, and farmers markets.

As a member of the Ohio Maple Producers Association, Hershey welcomes the public to stop in to enjoy views of our new sugarhouse, visit the animal barns, and check out the student’s hand-crafted products available for purchase. Visitors will also be able to learn about the school’s community centered approach to education.

What: Maple Madness Tour

Where: 11530 Madison Rd., Huntsburg, OH 44046

When: Saturday, March 5th and Saturday, March 12th

Journey to our Enchanted Garden Gala on Saturday, May 21 at 5:30 pm at Meadow Ridge Farm.  

This will be a beautiful evening spent in nature’s fresh spring air under a heated shelter, lending to a magical night amongst the wonderful Hershey community and its supporters.

Meadow Ridge Farm Venue

You will be surrounded by majestic views at the Meadow Ridge Farm venue while participating in silent and live auctions. You will be given the opportunity to enjoy the delicious offerings of the dessert dash, and appreciate the new twist on the wine pull this year that now includes the addition of craft beer.

While the gala is a wonderful time amongst friends, it also serves to provide the critically needed funding that benefits the children of Hershey and supports this successful educational template for students all over the world.

What Is an Open House?

An Open House is a set time for prospective parents and students to visit our school campus to learn more about Hershey Montessori School’s curriculum and culture. The Open House is structured to provide a better understanding of what a school has to offer. There are numerous benefits of attending these school open houses, many of which cannot be achieved by simply browsing a school’s website. Not only do open houses allow you to see the campus, but they also provide valuable insight into the programs and culture of each school. 

 

What Are the Benefits of Attending an Open House?

Prospective families and students benefit greatly by attending a Hershey Montessori School Open House. There is only so much that can be learned from literature, browsing a website and its videos, or even peer reviews. An in-person visit provides greater understanding through physical experience.

When participating in a school Open House event:

  • You have face-to-face dialogue with school personnel and sometimes students.
  • You experience authentic classroom settings.
  • You learn more about the curriculum and will be able to differentiate between Hershey Montessori School and other schools.
  • You will gain a clearer understanding of the school’s values and its approach to education.
  • You will learn what outcomes can be expected from our Montessori education model.
  • You learn how the school communicates with you about your child’s educational progress.
  • You will get a feel for the culture of the school.
  • You will learn things that help you in your decision-making process.
  • You are given the opportunity to ask questions.
  • You will meet some really nice people! 🙂

 

What to Expect

You will be given a tour of the school building(s) and see our Montessori classrooms and our outdoor space that provides stress-reducing connections to nature. A presentation will be given, allowing time afterward for a question and answer session.

 

Takeaways

Attending a Hershey Montessori School Open House will inform and equip you to make the best decision for your child’s education. It will also allow you to visualize your child in the school setting and determine if it is a good fit. The feeling you get from being on campus will be an important indicator of whether the school is a good choice for your child and family. Ask questions, be open-minded, and trust your parental instincts.
