Providing funds to supply the High School nurses with the necessary supplies for the implementation of the Advisory Period. The Advisory Period is designed to monitor and reduce the stress on the students during the school year. The nurses are assessing its effectiveness.

PORTABLE PLANETARIUM Every Elementary grade student experiences astronomy as part of the science curriculum. This is a very exciting and important part of the curriculum for students and teachers. In the past we borrowed a planetarium through the county or Raritan Valley Community College. Owning our own Planetarium enable OHES teachers to utilize the planetarium more on their own time and schedule, extend its use to more students and enable our teachers to become even more diverse in its application across the curriculum. We have many teachers trained to present the portable planetarium to the students. The digital projector is designed specifically for use in portable and small fixed domes. The flexibility of digital projection enables educators to cover a much broader and deeper range of topics, a vast improvement over portable analog (pinhole) projectors. Think of the difference between using a slide projector and a computer. Information regarding planetarium can be found at www.digitaliseducation.com.

MUSIC PROGRAM The Foundation has provided the funds to purchase new uniforms for The Montgomery High School Marching Band Color Guard. Our $10,000 donation provided the band with new uniforms for the squad that leads the band at games, parades and events.


The Montgomery Township Education Foundation
An Investment in our Children’s Future 

The Montgomery Township Education Foundation is an independent, non-profit organization set up to support strategic programs for the benefit of the Montgomery Township public school children. The Foundation’s goal is to raise money for the purpose of improving our children’s educational experience, acquiring supplies and equipment and providing innovative teaching and learning systems for our children. Following our first successful endeavor, Cougar Stadium, we have had extensive conversations with school Principals, administrators, students and parents to gain an appreciation of where we can help. We meet on a regular basis to discuss the ideas and determine how we can fund the programs that will benefit the most students. Our new projects will enhance programs in science, language arts, and music and also provide assistance for students who are academically at-risk.


The Montgomery Township Education Foundation is an independent, non-profit organization that funds programs that benefit Montgomery Township’s public school children. The primary purpose of the Foundation is to seek support for educational projects including improving educational facilities, acquiring needed equipment or materials, and providing innovative technological teaching and learning systems.

Our Mission is to raise money to improve our children’s educational experience by acquiring supplies and equipment not otherwise available and by funding innovative teaching and learning systems.

The MTEF has made the construction of an all-weather, synthetic turf field its first project. Now known as Cougar Stadium, the new field was ready for the 2004 Fall Season and is currently being used for school and community groups in the spring, summer and fall.

Soccer, football, marching band, cheerleading, lacrosse, and field hockey are among the teams and programs that are benefiting from the field. We secured a loan necessary to complete the project, but we need your help to meet our ten-year obligation.

We need your support! You can make a one-time or annual tax-deductible donation for a period of up to ten years. Thank you for your support.  We're now accepting donations via credit card online with Paypal.  Just click the button!
