Montessori Training FLASH MOB!!
Hello, friends of Montessori Northwest.
One of my favorite responsibilities as MNW’s Director of Fundraising & Community Education is organizing our annual fundraising auction and dinner, the Celebration of Light. From its humble inception nearly a decade ago, this event has grown into a magical evening of laughter, community, and fabulous auction items—and a great opportunity to support the dynamic work of Montessori Northwest.
This year’s event on Friday, January 24th, is really shaping into something special. Not only will it be our biggest and most glamorous Celebration (hello, Melody Ballroom!) but it will also feature several new treats.
- Who-Done-It Mystery Party
- Zumba, Yoga, Belly and Bollywood Dancing Lessons
- A Trip to Disneyland and Original Handmade Montessori Materials
- Billiard Games, Winery Tours, and Karaoke
- Gift Certificates galore!
- And much, much more…
There are so many ways to get involved:
For more information about the event and to buy tickets, please visit the official Celebration of Light website.

I look forward to seeing you on January 24th at the 9th Annual Celebration of Light Dinner and Auction. I’m buying a handful of tickets as holiday gifts this year and look forward to sharing this special evening with all of you.
With 2014 rolling along, Montessori Northwest's annual Celebration of Light is nearing closer by the day!
Every year our Montessori community looks forward to this event with great anticipation. It is our volunteers who, in part, make the evening an incredible success. That said, Montessori Northwest is looking for quite a few good men and women to fill the roles listed below--Come join the fun!
Pre-CelebrationHelp is requested in procurement of auction items, photography, and write-ups of auction items for the COL website and general data entry. The time commitment varies by job and most often can be completed remotely.
Event Setup (Day of the event, AM-4:30PM) *greatest need*After transporting COL items from MNW to the Melody Ballroom, help is needed to set up the auction spaces, check in/out tables, beautify the hall with decorations and table centerpieces, and put together the many exciting interactive party games that last throughout the evening. Lunch lunch and snacks provided.
Event Live (4:30PM-10PM)
Showtime! The pinnacle of many hands and hard work is showered on our 200+ attendees: Curbside greetings, entry escorts, guest check in/out, Golden Ticket sales, VIP Personal Assistants, managing the party games, and the inevitable clean up. Dinner provided (non-COL food). Enjoy the festivities.
Gift giving occasions such as birthdays and holidays can often be overwhelming for young children and their parents.
Last week we were joined by Allyn Travis, Executive Director and Director of Training at the Montessori Institute of Milwaukee.

"Ellos no quieren trabajar, lo único que quieren hacer es hablar," a veces es lo que escuchamos de los maestros Montessori.
