This special donation will build a fund to be used to commemorate the first graduating class of Hershey Montessori School.
The addition of the Upper School makes HMS the first in the world to implement Dr. Montessori’s vision for an adolescent residential program on a working farm. Bringing that vision to life required a shared courage and vision from our board, staff and parents.
But it could not have happened without the desire, faith and fearlessness of our students. The class of 2018 will graduate ready to take their place - and their responsibilities - as citizens of the world as they pursue an array of careers from neuroscience to business to the performing arts. Your donation will be used to celebrate this extraordinary group of students and commemorate their pioneering spirit with a plaque to be installed on the grounds of the HMS Huntsburg campus. Please consider making a gift to honor these remarkable students!
One copy of the hardcover 2017-2018 Hershey Montessori School Yearbook to be delivered to the Concord Campus before end of school year. Which will include photos from the Gala, Grandparents Day and other significant Concord and Huntsburg Campus events.
Huntsburg Campus Middle School Yearbook designed and published by the Middle School Students, focusing on the Middle School experience.
The first Upper School official yearbook, designed and published by the Upper School Students focusing on the Upper School experience. Pre-orders will be taken and the yearbook will be available for pick up at Huntsburg or Concord Campuses before the end of the year.
RUBY GALA MISSION STATEMENT
The Ruby Gala’s mission is to provide critically needed funding to Hershey Montessori School. All proceeds from the event immediately benefit students by enhancing or maintaining their beautifully prepared environments, funding staff professional development, providing added classroom materials and other operational needs.
Hershey Montessori School deliberately keeps tuitions low so that Hershey can be more accessible to more children, no matter their economic background. Without philanthropic efforts such as the Annual Fund and the Annual Fundraising Event, tuitions would be forced to be higher.
This year’s fundraising event is following the much-requested desire to change the venue, and to expand our funding outreach to a more extensive community. As we build awareness and increase our population of donors, we can reduce our dependency on Hershey families for charitable giving.
All families and friends can help to support the event in many ways: securing auction items, ads or even sponsorships from vendors or favorite businesses, volunteering to help with committee tasks, and/or purchasing tickets or tables for the event. Your support is valuable and critical to the success of the event no matter how you choose to participate. Thank you for your consideration and ongoing support of the mission and vision of Hershey Montessori School.
