About Appley Ever After

The people in the Apple Kingdom live on apples: apple soup, apple salad and, of course, apple pies. Jonathan and Blossom are two fun-loving but not so innocent twins who play a trick on the townspeople that backfires. They say that an “applephoon” is coming that will destroy all of the apples in the kingdom’s orchards. The villagers, all being selfish, immediately run to the orchards and begin picking all the apples and carrying them home by the buckets full. After all the apples are picked the villagers find that they are stricken with a strange case of “appleplexy” -- their arms won’t bend at the elbows. They soon realize they will never eat apples again. The solution to the problem is very simple, if they would only stop being so selfish! 


Monocacy Valley Montessori School (MVMS) was opened in 2002 as the first charter school in Maryland and it serves students in grades pre-K through 8. Attendance is open to all Frederick County Public School students. The school’s academic program is based on the philosophy and methods of Dr. Maria Montessori. The students, staff and families of MVMS are working together to create an enriching learning community.

MVMPCS is a small, intimate and democratic learning community where children learn actively, think critically, and solve problems creatively.  MVMPCS students become responsible, confident, caring citizens who possess strong academic skills and an enduring love of learning.
