Past Classroom Projects

The highlight of the Gala each year has become the one-of-a-kind, priceless classroom projects. Each classroom contributes one or two items to the auction that speak to the individuality of the classroom.These projects are a result of many hours of work put in by the students, teachers and parent volunteers. All live and silent classroom projects will be featured in All Things Gala and in the full auction preview that will be available the week before the Gala. Take a look below at some highlights from last year’s projects.

Keep your eyes open for a sneak peak of that special item made by your child’s loving hands!

Why attend the Gala?

When people hear the word Gala, they often think formal and stuffy. We prefer the words “casual elegance”. The Gala is the primary fundraiser for the school and the evening is designed as an opportunity for parents, faculty and staff to spend time together in a social setting and work together to raise funds for Oak Farm Montessori School. Giving opportunities are of various levels starting at $25 and up. The evening is filled with food, beverages, creative projects, an amazing video and most important supportive, loving families like you.
