Our “May Fête” began in 1966, after our first year as a Montessori School, as a celebration for the parents
and children who were here with us.
We asked parents to bring what would be appropriate for a pot-luck supper.
We provided a theme for the occasion, where the children could wear costumes.
We decorated and provided entertainment, so that it would be a party that everyone would enjoy.
That tradition has continued throughout the years, and continues to be something the children look forward to. Many of our graduates usually attend;
and reminisce fondly about their days at Aquinas and Old Town.
It represents a school year that is nearing an end for parents and children, and a celebration of all that has been accomplished.
AQUINAS ANNUAL MAY FÊTE

Our May Fête celebration is on Friday, May 20, 2016 (rain date: Saturday, May 21, 2016) from 6:00 pm to 8:30 pm.
We hope that you can join us for this special day.
Our annual May Fête includes food, entertainment and a wonderful opportunity for our community to celebrate together.
The theme for this year's celebration is: "The Jungle".
To provide for our May Fête Banquet, each family is asked to bring a hot main dish, perhaps an ethnic one,
for their family plus two adults, and to bring a side dish for twelve, by class.
Cost of admission is $8.00/adult and $4.50/child that covers drinks, decorations, rentals and entertainment.
As in the past, you will have the opportunity to make a donation along with your reservation for the May Fête.
