The Celebration of Light

An annual event for the Pacific Northwest's Montessori community to come together to celebrate and support the work happening at MNW.

2017 Event Details and Sponsorship Information Coming Soon!

2016 Celebration of Light was a shining success!

The evening gathered together friends and colleagues from across the Pacific Northwest to laugh, connect, and support the work of Montessori Northwest. As we’ve done in years past, the Celebration of Light showcased the fun and creativity inherently found in the lives of Montessorians. Attendees took part in a collective art project, participated in raffles and games, and posed for photos with a rather infamous historical celebrity—all alongside live music, an open bar, and a delicious dinner. We remain so thankful for the generous support shown to MNW by so many individuals and organizations. Your continuing financial support directly sustains our mission to bring more Montessori to more children!
