“How Each Program Embodies Hilltop’s Mission”
This is the most informative pedagogical parent education event of the year — The Montessori Curriculum at its CORE. Don’t miss out!
We recently went through the process of reviewing and revising our Mission Statement, and were struck by how intentionally we live out the “practice” of “responsible independence” at Hilltop. We also felt it was very important to include the “caring community” within which we grow these responsible independent learners. Join us for a participatory morning with a visit to every program
Childcare provided with fun activities
and materials planned.
Pizza provided by Hazel and Hilltop,
bring a salad or dessert if you can.
RSVP to email@example.com
or sign up at the front desk.
Current and prospective parents are invited to join us as we observe the classrooms in action and talk with students, current parents and teachers about the programs, the school and the Montessori method of learning.
This is a great first step to learning about the school and hearing from our program directors and students.
The event is designed for parents and interested adults. RSVP at 802-257-0500 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Cancellations will be posted on our website if we need to cancel due to weather conditions at www.hilltopmontessori.org or at the WKVT or WTSA radio websites.
The seventh graders are creating poetic lists of their loves and hates and the eighth graders are crafting their curricula vitae, their resume for life. They will be reciting these lovely and insightful pieces on Monday evening November 6 beginning at 7pm in the Arts Barn Theater. The recitation of these poems of identity is always fascinating, humorous, moving, and revealing.
High School students, college students and young professionals who attended Hilltop Montessori School, for middle school or starting in pre-school, return to share their Hilltop experiences. How did their education at HMS prepare them for their subsequent education and for life? Parents of our current students as well as prospective parents are encouraged to attend this event. Faculty will also be in attendance.
This is a wonderful and important fundraising event for the Middle School trips. All families are invited to join us for the fabulous community event at The Putney School in Putney, Vt.
Hilltop is one of many and our tent will be selling our families homemade soups, baked goods, hot coffee and cider.
Grandparents and Special Friends are invited to visit in the classroom with their grandchild or special friend and attend an All School Gathering. If you can’t attend on this date, we also have a Grandparents and Special Friends Day in the Spring on May 25, 2017.

This is an evening meeting for all parents to learn about the upcoming year, curriculum topics, expectations of students and building student-parent-teacher relationships. We strongly believe that parents play a critical role in their children’s education. We hope to help parents have a greater understanding of their child’s work and development, ways to be involved in your child’s education and creating consistent expectations and experiences!
Students will be cooking, living, and learning in the outdoor classroom as well as getting to know their new community.
