This year’s auction will take place Friday, April 28, 2017 at The Melody Ballroom.
WHAT IS THE ANNUAL AUCTION?
For those new to TPMS community, the annual auction is a fun party where Portland Montessori School parents, grandparents, and friends enjoy dinner and bid on Silent and Live Auction items. Each class comes up with a class project that is part of the Live Auction. The class projects are truly amazing!
There are parts of the auction that you can be a part of even if you don’t attend, including purchasing and selling raffle tickets and signing up for the community easel parties.
Proceeds from the auction provide tuition assistance to make our school accessible to students who would not otherwise be able to attend. Without our auction, we would not be able to provide this funding. Additionally, each year we have a special appeal paddle raise which underwrites a specific need of the school.
"As parents, our ultimate goal is for our child to make independent, healthy and confident choices so he can be a happy and productive person wherever he is in life. We are thankful he is with Miss Jennifer's elementary class and The Portland Montessori School community, where he is developing those traits."
"Our son's vocabulary, spelling, reading and social skills have grown by leaps and bounds under the Montessori method."
"We always knew that our daughter’s curiosity and tenacity led her to love exploration and learning, but since she’s been with The Portland Montessori School we've seen her develop personally in ways we hadn't imagined. She is all the better for the love, respect, friendship and encouragement she receives there."
"The Portland Montessori School is a school with a heart. Each year, parents raise money to sustain scholarships that make the dream of a Montessori education a reality for families who could not otherwise afford it. That shows the true spirit of community at our school."
"We've been a part of this amazing community for seven years. Not only are our children getting a fabulous education, but they receive personal care and attention every single day."
