Giant’s A+ School Rewards Program
Giant’s A+ program rewards us at the end of each year based on the shopping that our supporters — parents, friends, and families — do there. All you need to do to help is register your Giant Card here.
Box Tops for Education
Supporting the Academy through Box Tops for Education is easy. You help by simply cutting the box top cutouts off the everyday products you already use. Each box top is worth 10¢ to us and they add up quickly. Please recruit friends and family who are willing to help! Get involved here.
Evening of Elegance & Silent Auction
Each year on the second Saturday in November, we host the Academy’s annual “Evening of Elegance” with a Live Auction and Silent Auction. Each year, dozens of local businesses contribute gifts and donations to be auctioned at the event. There are multiple advertising opportunities for businesses. Tickets to attend the event can be obtained by calling (717) 261-1110.
Race for Education
Each spring our students get prepared to RUN! To raise money for specific uses, students send sponsorship letters to family and friends throughout the country. Then they participate in their race at every level. Every level, even our toddlers, give their all racing around the track to a mix of great music. We invite you to come out and cheer for them!
Scholastic Book Fair (Fall & Spring)
Twice each year, Montessori Academy hosts a Scholastic Book Fair. This event is open to the public so bring a friend! All books are brand new — from easy readers (toddlers) through upper reading levels: Scholastic books, best sellers, CDs, school supplies, novelty items, posters, audio books, work and play books for children of all ages.
