Community Parties with Openings

Community Parties at The New School Montessori are a longstanding tradition. It’s a fun way to fundraise and to get to know one another better.

The process begins in late fall when parents, staff and alumni families donate community parties as an auction gift. These parties are revealed on auction night where auction attendees have the first opportunity to sign up and donate their admission fee (for the party) to the school. Throughout the year, families can continue to sign up for parties that have openings.

Listed below are parties from the 2017 auction with openings.

To sign up for a party:

Please look through those with openings below, and call or stop by the office 513-281-7999 to reserve your spot and arrange for payment and further details.
