Parents and Students Celebrate New Annual Learning Theme at Kickoff Event

A distinctive element of Hudson Montessori's curriculum is our year-long exploration of an annual theme. At the beginning of each school year, our classrooms delve into various aspects of a significant and all-encompassing theme that forms the foundation for the year's educational journey. Thank you to all the parents who joined us to celebrate when we revealed our new school-wide theme: "My World: Through the Eyes of the Child." [Click here to learn more.]

Annual Book Fair was a Huge Success

Through the dedication of our staff and parent volunteers, the HMV parents transformed the Multipurpose Room at the 50 Regent building into a bright, inviting book store exciting children to read! The “bookjoy” bug bit students of all ages! Thank you to our parents for drumming up excitement in your children and encouraging their love of reading by buying books and supporting our classrooms by making book donations for Teacher Wish Lists in their classroom libraries.

Parents Come Together to Learn About Montessori at Journey Event

We were pleased to welcome our new and returning parents from the Toddler to Lower Elementary to their children's classrooms for our Montessori Journey event. The in-person, parents-only event on Thursday, October 5, explained how our students learn through Math, Language Arts, Practical Life, and Sensorial Work. Our teachers expertly guided parents through the carefully designed Montessori curriculum and showed parents how each part of their child's education lays the foundation for a firm educational journey. 

Hudson Montessori School Donates Safe Water Station for Children in Need

Hudson Montessori School encourages our students to grow into compassionate global citizens who work to create a better world for all people. In a recent demonstration of this commitment, our school donated $1,000 to the Save the Children Foundation to fulfill its promise to our students who participated in the Social Studies Fair Trade Routes challenge. This donation to Save the Children purchased a safe water station for children worldwide with a dire need for a sanitary water supply. [Click here to learn more.]

Students Venture Out for Annual Day in the Life of the Hudson River

Our Elementary and Middle School students recently collected data alongside other schools positioned up and down the Hudson River from Troy, NY, to the New York Harbor for the annual Day in the Life of the Hudson River and Harbor event. The Hudson River is a vital part of our student scientists' outdoor classroom. Through our STEAM program, our students are constantly expanding their horizons and finding new ways to connect their learning to their world. The event is sponsored by DEC's Hudson River Estuary Program in collaboration with the Hudson River National Estuarine Research Reserve and Lamont Doherty Earth Observatory of the Columbia Climate School. We do, however, embrace this longitudinal study on numerous days  throughout each year (which is unique to Hudson Montessori School) as our access to both the river and scientists are close.
