This year’s auction will take place Saturday, April 21, 2018 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.
"The outdoor play area offered at The Portland Montessori School is by far the best we saw in the city, and is a daily source of inspiration for imaginative play for our son. It is a beautiful, secluded-feeling wonderland and the children use it daily, rain or shine!"
"I am so happy that my son is spending his kindergarten year in a Montessori environment where his knowledge, self-control, kindness, sense of purpose, and confidence have all grown by leaps and bounds."
"Yesterday my second grader added 61 plus 61 in her head and she's zipping through the Harry Potter series. So while the school doesn’t measure her progress with test scores, I can see how much she has learned, but more importantly, I can see and feel her excitement about learning."
"The school community at The Portland Montessori School creates a truly inspiring environment that is nurturing and encourages independence and a desire to learn. We see the results of this in our daughter every day."
"As the mom of identical (yet nothing alike) twins, we wanted a school community that would nurture their individual curiosities and interests and provide them the same lifelong love of learning that I have experienced as a Montessori student many years ago. We found that in The Portland Montessori School."
