Students from 3 years old through elementary had an up-close and personal meeting with the brass section of the Princeton Symphony Orchestra’s PSO BRAVO! The five players in the Brass Quintet played music from the Renaissance up through the theme from The Simpsons. They took their instruments apart to show the students how they work, and demonstrated the bugle, the hunting horn, the conch shell and the didjeridoo. The Junior II student’s are looking forward to their trip to Richardson Auditorium to hear the full orchestra at the end of April!
The Primary children were treated to a concert by Zachary’s parents, Adrian and Amy. The Toddler children were invited to join the older students for the presentation. Everyone enjoyed dancing to the piano and violin music.
The third year Primary students enjoyed visiting the Junior I classroom and experiencing what the next step looks like.
Parents are also invited to come for a look inside their child’s next program by attending an InSight tour. Experience our integrated curriculum, small community environment and developmental expertise within each age group. Parents will gain a better understanding of how Montessori students thrive from program to program and grow to their greatest potential.

Thank you for the tremendous response to the Thanksgiving Food Drive! Your generous donations filled ambassador Colleen Akers’ van to the brim! The volunteers at Homefront were thrilled to receive the food items for the upcoming holiday.
Thank you again for supporting our friends in need around Mercer County.

Toy Drive - For many years the Princeton Montessori School community has been gathering gifts for less fortunate children and donating them to Toys for Tots. We invite families of children in all programs, Infant through Middle School to donate an unwrapped gift to a child of the same age as your child. This way they can better match the gifts to the ages of the children receiving them. We encourage all families to participate and to consider donating educational gifts such as art supplies, board games and creative toys. The gifts will be collected in the Infant/Toddler and Main foyers and picked up by local Marines on December 18th.
Giving Line - Garland is hung in the Infant/Toddler and Main foyers of the school to form The Giving Line. We invite you and your child to bring in a pair of mittens or a hat to hang on the line. Before the school’s winter break, we meet as a school community to see our combined efforts. Students from the Middle School Community Service class facilitate The Giving Line. The items are delivered to Martin House on December 18th as our gift to children in need.
Several of the sixth graders decided that they wanted to do something to help the victims of the recent typhoon in the Philippines. They got together and formed the Middle School Typhoon Aid Committee (MSTAC) to collect money which they will donate to UNICEF Philippines. Collection jars have been placed around the school: at the front desk, in the office, in the toddler foyer, in the Veranda room, and in the Crescendo foyer. Please consider donating some of your spare change to this cause. Thanks in advance for supporting the students’ desire to help those in need.
