October: Fall Harvestfest

Each October, we celebrate the beautiful Harvestfest season with our students and families. Activities move children out-of-doors throughout the week and offer students opportunity to learn and explore all that the season has to offer, as well as provide educational enrichment, physical fitness and sensory development activities. This year, Harvestfest was held the week of October 14th – 18th with our traditional Harvestfest Assembly on Thursday.

Businesses were amazing and supported us with small sponsorships that assisted in providing the supplies and materials needed for Harvestfest week.

Celebrating the Heart of Penn-Mont – Gala

Our 2020 Gala has been moved to Saturday, August 29, 2020, 6pm, at The Blairmont Club in Hollidaysburg.  Please plan to join us.  I think we’ll all need a good party by then!!

Penn-Mont has so much to be thankful for and celebrate! What a better setting than our elegant gala offering opportunity to kick up our heels, dress to the nines, and honor our unique and diverse Montessori community. Guests join us as we celebrate the arts through the child’s eye. Fundraising during the evening includes a Live Auction, Silent Auction, Fund the Need, and other games of chance. Enjoy great food and entertainment while spending time with other parents and friends of Penn-Mont. This year’s theme is “A Secret Garden, ” sponsored by Jeff Adler of Adler’s Landscape Nursery, Inc.  Jeff and his crew will transform the Blairmont to reflect a Secret Garden.  Contact the Development Office for more information about our event.

Proceeds benefit Penn-Mont Academy’s enrichment programs and activities.
