Annual Auction

Our Children, Our Future

Our annual Art in the Yard auction is a great way for our parents and their extended families to invest in a stronger Montessori community. Your support helps us continue to enrich lives and deepen the educational experience for children in our classrooms and enhance our community presence.

How do you participate?


Parents, extended family and friends offer generous and unique items for the silent and live auctions. Some of the auction prizes have included trips, a beach house retreat, artwork and, of course, extraordinary projects made by our children. Your donations are greatly appreciated.


Every year that we hold an auction, a dynamic group of families come together to offer their time and creativity to collaborate, organize and create an evening worth remembering! There are a number of ways to participate.


Families can ask for solicitations from friends and local businesses. Whether it is an item or service, our auction committee can create a gift basket or theme with it. Ask your favorite restaurant, retailer or children's store whether they can contribute. If you are looking for ideas for contributed gifts and auction items, we will happily provide you with a list of some great gifts.
