The Montgomery School Garden grows vegetables that are served in our Dining Room during the School year. During the summer, the food we grow is donated to the Chester County Food Bank. Opportunities abound for parents and families to get involved with the Montgomery School Garden. We have various positions available. Please review the listings below and sign up to help in any way that you can. We appreciate your help!
In the spirit of service to our broader community, Montgomery families collected over $850 to donate to St. Mary's Franciscan Shelter in Phoenixville, a homeless shelter for women and children. Many thanks to the entire community for their contributions to this effort. Sister Chris was presented with a check during a recent chapel program, and spoke about how deeply grateful she was for the School's efforts.
Montgomery's 2012-2013 speaker series finished on Thursday evening with child psychologist Dr. Jennifer Jackson-Holden's presentation and discussion about Keeping a Balanced Life: Parenting a Thoughtful, Well-Rounded Child. Attendees were eager to listen to Dr. Jackson-Holden's advice about how to set appropriate limits for their child and the importance of play in child development, among other topics. Earlier in April, Montgomery parent and child psychologist Dr. Jim Karustis spoke to parents and guests about effective family communication. Plans are underway to continue our speaker series next fall, so stay tuned!
The good news keeps coming as Science teacher David Kline was recently awarded a grant to participate in the Japan-U.S. Teacher Exchange Program in Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) which is hosted by the Fulbright Commission in Japan. As stated in the acceptance letter, the mission of this program is “to raise awareness of ESD-oriented school programs, enhance ESD-related curricula in both countries, and deepen a sense of global interconnectedness and cooperation between teachers in Japan and the United States.” The program is jointly funded by the governments of Japan and the United States. David is participating in a joint conference in San Francisco from April 28 - May 1 and will travel to Tokyo from June 18 - July 2. This is a tremendous honor for David and an equally great honor for Montgomery School!
At Shanahan's annual Battle of the Bands Competition, many kids formed their own rock bands for an awesome night of musical competition. Three alumni from Montgomery School, Alexandra Fillippo, Lane Oakes & Brad Vertigan, put on quite a show! Alex performed in 2 bands as lead singer in both; Lane performed on trumpet in the band "10 to 1"; and Brad performed keyboard in 2 bands "The Chair" & "10 to 1," plus he accompanied another friend on her solo performance. "10 to 1" took 1st Place, "The Chair" took 3rd Place & the solo performance took 2nd Place. How's that for musical talent coming out of Montgomery School?! Kudos to Montgomery's music teachers Yoon Lim and Jerrald Bennett, who set the stage for such a feat. Congratulations to our rockin' alumni!
