Food, Friends, and Fun: 2024 Social Studies Fair a Great Success

Nearly 1,000 people attended our 15th Annual “It’s a Child’s World” Social Studies Fair in May. It was wonderful to see the impressive classroom galleries and our children's infectious smiles and laughter as they marveled at all the galleries. We all had so much fun. Thank you to our students, staff, parent volunteers, and community partners for coming together and making this event successful. Special thanks to our staff and Hudson Montessori parent volunteers for partnering with us year-round to make our children's learning experiences memorable. [Click here to learn more.]

Celebrating Our Staff for Teacher Appreciation Day

Our Hudson Montessori teachers are the most dedicated staff you can find anywhere. We are so fortunate for their attentiveness and care for our students. The Hudson Montessori Volunteer parents showed their appreciation by honoring our amazing teachers with a catered breakfast and gift cards in appreciation of their dedication to the school's children all year.

Summer Camp Set to Begin June 24

Hudson Montessori offers three summer camps—one for Toddlers, one for Primary, and one for Elementary (rising first to fifth graders). The Elementary Maker Camp (Physics in Action & the Olympics) exposes our inquisitive campers to the magic of STEAM, demonstrating important concepts while having fun and making lasting memories. Our elementary campers swim daily (weather permitting), play sports, go on field trips, and so much more. Our younger camps feature “Land, Water, and Air” and “Discovering Our World,” each with water play and fun activities. We offer three sessions—Session 1: June 24, Session 2: July 15, and Session 3: August 5. Nearly all of our camps are full, some sessions have a few spots available. Learn more and sign up today!

World Fish Migration Day

At a recent event in Liberty State Park, the Hudson Montessori STEAM team and our Middle School Eco Club demonstrated to Jersey City how to check the health of the Hudson River, one of the most recognizable waterways on Earth. Hudson Montessori School has special state permits to operate science monitoring stations along the Hudson River. Our students and teachers demonstrated how to make and pull up eel mops, measure Hudson River water parameters, and why the American glass eel matters to the Hudson River waterway for World Fish Migration Day 2024. Although eels weren’t found in the retrieved eel mops, they were full of much life—crabs, shrimp, barnacles, and other organisms—still a very positive sign! [Click here to learn more.]
