  Take the My Energy Kit Challenge
Use your FREE Energy Kit to save energy in your home

The Conservation Caper and Energy Agents, in-school programs from Duke Energy, have a goal to save 10 million kilowatt-hours of energy during the 2016-17 school year. To reach this goal, families at participating schools can request a FREE Energy Kit to save energy in their homes. Every unique request for the FREE Energy Kit helps your school win cash rewards ranging from $250-$2,500, and gives each family a chance to win $1,000.

Take the My Energy Kit Challenge! Request your kit, help your school, and do your part to save energy.

Sands Montessori is proud to announce our students will grow vegetables on TOWER GARDENS this year!

Thanks to Adrianne Mayne and Meghan Fronduti and a grant by the Cincy Good Food Fund, Sands is part of a 3-school CPS pilot program leading the way for aeroponic classroom gardening.
These innovative gardens can be grown outside, or inside with grow lights. Students will plant seeds, monitor growth, and harvest food with hands-on lessons about environmental science, sustainability and healthy eating!
If you or someone you know would like to grow on Tower Gardens too, please contact our garden expert Adrianne Mayne through her website at or call 513-219-0923.
These referrals help to fund and grow our school garden program. Thank you!
