Gladwyne Montessori's Parent Teacher Association is an integral part of the school community. Through events, drives, activities, and ideas, involvement in the PTA offers limitless potential to make a positive impact on our children's place of learning. Everything we do has the underlying goal of supporting our school and community. Whether through community building (annual events), providing financial support (fundraisers, auction), or reinforcing social awareness and responsibility (days of service, charity drives), the PTA serves to synergize the gifts of time, talent, and service that are so abundant in our community and use them the make Gladwyne Montessori continually more amazing!

A group of passionate parents meet to discuss the various events and fundraising opportunities for the Gladwyne Montessori community.

PTA Event Overview


Every year, our community comes together to raise funds from the school. A theme is selected, donations are collected, and then the fun begins! Find out more about this year's auction.

Book Fair

Be the first to see great new books, help students write their wish lists or help set-up when you volunteer for the Book Fair. Teachers, children and parents can shop from a wonderful selection of new books and donate books to their classroom.

Community Service

Throughout the year, there are various community service opportunities to participate in. These opportunities foster a deeper commitment and understanding to community service here at home, regionally and globally. Our annual Halloween Candy Drop-off, Hat & Mitten Tree, MLK Day of Service and casserole-bake give comfort to those in need and provide support for the homeless.

Day of Service

This year, our school is partnering with The 23rd Annual Greater Philadelphia Martin Luther King Day of Service, which is the largest day of service event in the nation with almost 2,000 volunteers! We are excited to have this opportunity to give back to our larger community. We hope this is a way to either continue your family's ongoing service work or to provide a way for your family to start volunteering.

Fall Festival

Every year, we host a Fall Family Festival for the community filled with fun! The festival includes a petting zoo, pony rides, balloon artists, face painting, amazing food and more. You can even take home an airbrushed pumpkin with a special decoration.

Parent Education

Throughout the year, there are various workshops, classes, and events for parents to get tips from parenting and child experts. Education at Gladwyne Montessori isn't just for the children!

Square 1 Art

Square 1 Art is an awesome fundraising opportunity that allows your child to showcase their artwork and have them turned into memorable keepsakes! Whether a mug, keychain, bag, or apron, your child will have pride in their work seeing it come to life on an item. Your children get to create, you get a gift, and funds are raised for the school. Triple win.

Spring Fling

Our Spring Fling carnival provides our students to celebrate the arrival of warm(er) weather! There are fun games, great food, and we are always joined by alumni!

Teacher Appreciation Luncheon

The Teacher Appreciation Luncheon is an opportunity for parents to give back to our teachers that give so much to our children. Parents come together to show their support and make our teachers and staff feel special by serving the faculty and staff at this delicious holiday luncheon. All dishes are provided by our students and families.


Our yearbook is a great way to cherish the memories of the great things that happen in our school throughout the years. Get involved in capturing every moment from the year!
