Text Size

Fraser Woods Montessori School hosted its Annual Spring Get-Together and Auction “Let’s Get Acquainted at Aquila’s!” on May 1.

Fraser Woods Montessori (FWM) School Interim Head of School Gina Tryforos said in a release, “Celebrating together with our current families, alumni parents, grandparents, trustees, our faculty and staff, sponsors, and friends of the school is always tremendously meaningful. The energy of our vibrant community was clear to see amid the smiles, laughter, and good time had by all.

“Because of the pandemic, it had been three years since the FWM community last came together to celebrate. Getting through these last two years taught all of us the meaning and the importance of community. A sense of belonging to a greater community improves your health and happiness. When you see your connection to others, there is comfort in that,” Tryforos said.

The event was hosted at Aquila’s Nest Vineyards and was supported by both Reverie Brewing Company and NewSylum Brewing. Event sponsors were Dr Roseann Capanna-Hodge and Carrubba Inc.

The fundraiser supported Fraser Woods Montessori School's Fund-A-Need campaign, which is helping to fund a new fabrication laboratory.

According to the release, Fund-A-Need is an initiative that carefully creates a curated experience or physical space for the school’s young learners that reflects the Montessori philosophy and optimizes child development. In 2013, it funded an eco-friendly natural playground, and in 2017 it supported funding turning the school's computer lab into a MakerSpace. The mission of the school’s Fab Lab is to equip students in kindergarten through eighth grade with the tools to independently design, invent, and create. It will cultivate an environment that encourages students to apply foundational knowledge to unique challenges. Additionally, it will encourage students to develop a growth mindset that they will carry to all future endeavors.
