Throughout the school year, Ithaca Montessori School hosts several fun-filled family events for the IMS community. These events help build our sense of community and are a treat for our children.

IMS Fall Festival

For our 1st official community event of each school year we come together to celebrate the beauty of the fall season with a homemade lunch and fall themed celebration.  Children and families enjoy art, crafts, and indoor/outdoor activities inspired by the season.


IMS Friendship Lunch

Our annual pre-Thanksgiving community feast is held the Tuesday before Thanksgiving. Families contribute their own special dishes and IMS provides traditional Thanksgiving foods. With so many of our families coming from different countries, this is a wonderful occasion to try cuisine from around the world. This is a favorite IMS tradition for students and families alike!


IMS End of the Year Cookout

To thank IMS families for the contributions and support, at the end of the school year, IMS teachers and administrators host a cook out for the entire IMS community. For the past several years, the event has been held at Ithaca’s Cass Park.
