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.
"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."
"If it's true what Maria Montessori said, that the test of the correctness of an educational approach is the happiness of the child, then this school is succeeding beyond our wildest dreams. Both our boys are so happy to go to school and so proud of their work."
"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."
"Our son's vocabulary, spelling, reading and social skills have grown by leaps and bounds under the Montessori method."
