Each one of us is enriched when we help

– or are helped by – others.

We are thrilled to report that Sunny Hollow Montessori remained open and entirely COVID-free throughout 2020/2021, during which it held on-campus classes as well as accommodating families that chose distance learning.

This success was due in part to the stunning generosity of members of the Sunny Hollow current, past and extended-family communities who made donations of all sizes that enabled us to create and maintain a safe, healthy and inclusive environment. These donations enabled Sunny Hollow to provide:

  • “Technology Toolkits” (MacBook Pro, webcam, tripod and memory card) for each classroom that made it possible for students and Guides to connect, communicate and collaborate with each other no matter where they were.
  • Classroom air purifers that helped mitigate COVID-19 risks.
  • PPE and sanitizers: gloves, masks, face shields, supplies for our Electrostatic Sprayer

Being able to financially support families in their enrollment and continued attendance at Sunny Hollow is critical to maintaining a diverse community in all its manifestations – economically, geographically, racially. 

Not only for 2020/2021, but also for 2021/2022, the Sunny Hollow community very generously responded to the increased need that some families have experienced as a result of  COVID-19 economic hardships. 

A big thank you everyone who donated to Sunny Hollow’s
