The class parents and children and community at large are beginning the rewarding work of creating the classroom auction items for Spring Garden’s 25th Annual Auction Benefit. Did you know we need silent auction items donated and you can donate them online? Click HERE.
The Auction, held on Sat., April 20, at Rosemont Country Club in Fairlawn, will include many one-of-kind, handmade items along side of gift baskets, gift certificates and other luxurious offerings donated by parents and local businesses. Children over the years have made beautiful and timeless art pieces such as collaborative paintings, quilts, handmade furniture and toys, and so much more. We auction the children’s art during the live auction portion of our event and beforehand guests enjoy browsing and bidding on our silent auction items.
If you have an item to donate, please do so today by Clicking Here to donate and if you have not reserved your tickets, Click Here to buy tickets. Don’t forget to get a GOLDEN TICKET for $40 and join in a chance to win $1000 on auction night!

People often note the quiet and concentration of our Early Childhood students and their ability to listen carefully to their soft spoken teachers.
Children learn best by doing. Movement is key to teaching math, writing and reading in Primary School children.
Music and art are woven into Main Lesson subjects like reading, writing and math.
Third graders are eager to learn about the world outside of themselves and have the skills they need to concentrate and absorb challenging information.
The Fourth grade day is rich, including special subjects like woodworking, clay sculpture, gardening and violin on top of regular academic rigor.
On tours of Grade 5 classes and beyond, many parents comment about on the amount of collaboration and vibrant conversation among the teacher and the students.
Spanish, geometry, history, language arts are all taught through engaging and interesting projects. Here is an example of the final result of a Sixth grade geometry lesson.
Our Seventh graders are often encountered in the Science Lab, being led to their own conclusions about experiments taught through Socratic inquiry and interaction.
On any given tour, you may find our oldest students helping their First grade buddies, making a chair in woodworking class, practicing for orchestra, studying algebra, anatomy or physics, or working on a paper for U.S. history.
You will also find, that whatever our students doing, they are not only passionate about it, but engaged with the subject and with one another, and respectful and grateful for their teachers.
