About May Fête

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.

The reason it is such a joyful event is that the accomplishments the children have made have been due to Dr. Montessori’s advice, which we have always followed.
