Each year, Ratner Montessori hosts the Kaleidoscope Gala - our biggest annual fundraiser. This year's theme was to be Casino Royale and we were deep into planning for what would have been an evening filled with fun and excitement. While we are disappointed that we will not be able to gather in person, we remain committed to the goal of this signature event - sustaining the school community that makes Ratner so special.
-Growing our ability to offer tuition assistance to current/prospective students that build the fabric of our school community
-Providing industry-leading professional development for teachers, allowing our academics to continue to be a differentiator in Northeast Ohio's independent school offering
-Elevating enrichment activities/experiences for students
-And supporting the various ways that we continue to bring our school into its next chapter of excellence
It is no secret that Ratner Montessori has faced a challenging year between the Brainard Circle gas line explosion, multiple water breaks and a global pandemic that has impacted all of our families, near and far. In such unprecedented times, we are grateful for your support of our community - and for the way in which each of you is a part of making it so special.
If you are able, we ask that you donate to our CrowdRise campaign in lieu of attending our 2020 Gala.
Your critical contribution, now more than ever, helps us make a difference in the lives of our wonderful students and sustain our ability to provide financial assistance to our families that call Ratner home. We imagine this next school year will look quite different for all of us but we take comfort knowing we are all in this together.
On behalf of all of us at Ratner, we can’t wait to see you (whenever that may be).
