Annual Art in the Yard Auction Event
Parents, along with community members and staff, support an annual community event to benefit the programs at SunGarden Montessori. This event highlights art and projects made by the children, which are sold in both a silent and live auction. Revenue generated from this event are used for the annually-identified goal; in the past for capital; improvements, classroom materials, professional development and program enhancements. As the single largest volunteer effort, we encourage parents to join us in making this a successful event. To make a monetary donation outside the auction event itself, please go to the DONATIONS tab of our website.
In-Kind Donations and Volunteerism
Our children have family and community members with wonderful hobbies, talents and occupational skills. We encourage parents, extended family members, and even local businesses to donate time and items that can help enhance our classrooms and outdoor space. These include your time, services, or goods gifted to the school. Over the past few years, donations have ranged from kitchen and craft supplies, to carpentry and computer services. Volunteer opportunities includes support with advertising and marketing, hosting parent coffee, contributing to the staff potluck, serving on the Board of Directors, and assisting on-site with class or community activities.
