Each year, Hudson Montessori hosts a myriad of events that welcome parents into the classroom and immerse families in their students' learning. On Saturday, January 27, families and their students of every age joined us for our annual Three-in-One Event: Bring Your Parent to School Day, Pancake Breakfast, and Maker Faire
School Maker Faire
Our School Maker Faire is the only one of its kind in the region. This event showcases the school's STEAM program as students present spectacular projects they have been working on throughout the year. The school Maker Faire challenges students to create and deliver innovative projects focused on art, robotics and coding, science, and engineering. Students aged Kindergarten through Eighth Grade unveiled dazzling projects on everything from AI innovation to DNA studies. Students and families came to view their presentations and tinker along at our interactive maker stations.
Maker Faires occur across the country, but Hudson Montessori School featur’s the region's only elementary School Maker Faire. In 2019, Hudson Montessori School became the first STEM-certified campus in New Jersey by the National Institute for STEM Education—and remains the only school to have achieved its highest standards. Our Maker Faire event is just one of the ways we allow students to showcase their work beyond the classroom
Bring Your Parents to School
Toddler, Bridge Primary, and Primary parents joined their children (age 2 through 6) for Bring Your Parents to School. Each student acted as their parent's teacher for a 45-minute work period in their classroom. Our students prepared unique work plans to guide their "students" through "class."
All families and students enjoyed fresh-flipped blueberry, chocolate chip, or rainbow pancakes flipped by our parent-volunteer chefs at our Pancake Breakfast fundraiser. Parents mingled and enjoyed breakfast with fellow families. All proceeds from the breakfast support our school's enrichment programs.
To learn more about Hudson Montessori School's interdisciplinary, theme-based learning approach to education, the Montessori philosophy and methodology, or how the school fosters the love of learning for its students, the school welcomes parents to learn more for children aged 2 to eighth grade at our upcoming open houses.
