Hershey Market Is Now ONLINE!

Hershey Market Is Now ONLINE!

“A shop, or store, could be established…and here the students could easily sell and bring their produce of their fields and garden, and other things that they have made.”  ~ Maria Montessori, From Childhood to Adolescence.

Hershey Montessori Middle and Upper School students are excited to offer a special selection of microeconomy products through their new online market.

Available products include hand-crafted cutting boards, wooden spoons and spatulas, beeswax candles, maple syrup products, and more. Many of these items can be purchased as part of the beautiful Holiday Market Chest being offered for a limited time only.

Students have been working diligently on the new online platform and are pleased to have taken the next step in experiencing entrepreneurship and small business through this practical and relevant application known as e-commerce.

The Microeconomy is a hallmark component of Hershey Montessori School’s Adolescent Community. Dr. Maria Montessori envisioned adolescents participating in and managing small business endeavors in order to experience economic activity in their community – the “microeconomy.”

Today’s students have additional options for exploring and demonstrating the fundamental concepts of entrepreneurship as they manage all the aspects of the Hershey Market. Students are responsible for marketing, sales management, customer service, inventory, order fulfillment, accounting systems, and much more.

Shop the Hershey Market online or view the full array of high-quality products, made from natural resources harvested from the Huntsburg, OH farm campus, by visiting us in person. Contact us at 440-636-6290.

Proceeds from sales go to the Microeconomy to sustain the needs of the farm and Microeconomy activities.

Hershey Students Attend YSU MathFest

Hershey Students Attend YSU MathFest

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!
