Montessori School Las Vegas | Teal Pumpkin Project

As you know, Innovation Academy Las Vegas Montessori is leading the charge to create an inclusive learning environment for students with food allergies.

Most schools choose to segregate students with food allergies from the rest of the school during meal and snack time. Instead, Innovation Academy believes that education and inclusion is a healthier and safer approach.

We can do this safely through a couple of simple steps:

  1. Understand the complexity of any food allergies our students may have.
  2. Work with local Las Vegas restaurants to provide fully catered, healthy, food allergy safe meals for ALL of our students.
  3. Educate our student body and families on understanding food allergies so that they can more naturally help provide a food allergy safe environment with us.

A Different Trick or Treat

Kids with food allergies often miss out on the fun of Halloween, which is traditionally centered around collecting bucketful’s of candy treats. These treats are often full of potential allergens, particularly peanuts. However, Halloween “treats” don’t have to just be candy. The Teal Pumpkin Project provides an alternative that makes sure families with food allergies can enjoy Halloween too.

The Teal Pumpkin Project

The best thing about the Teal Pumpkin Project is that anyone can participate in supporting the cause. Here are the 4 simple steps according to their website:

  1. Provide non-food treats for trick-or-treaters, such as glow sticks and small toys.
  2. Place a teal pumpkin on your doorstep to indicate that you are a participating household.
  3. Add your home to the Teal Pumpkin Project map so families can find you.


Happy Halloween

The Innovation Academy Las Vegas Montessori community wishes you all a safe and happy Halloween! No matter your family traditions, we hope it is a fun night for all. Now you know what it means if you happen upon a teal pumpkin this Halloween!
