On May 12th at the Labor of Love Art Auction and Gala, we launched a scholarship fund in honor of our co-founders. Love of Learning Montessori School has always been conscious about keeping tuition costs affordable (offering the lowest tuition of any private elementary school on Long Island) and extending financial assistance to many families who qualify. However, in an effort to support the mission of our school to place a Montessori education within reach of all our families who seek it for their children, and with a strong desire to improve transparency and accountability to our community regarding the impact our fundraising dollars make, we are pleased to establish our school's first scholarship fund.
This is an amazing start and you can keep the momentum going by making an additional contribution today!
We also presented as a gift to Mr and Mrs. Thompson for their 40th anniversary celebration: Love of Learning Takes Flight
This 2-part collaborative art piece was created with contributions by all of the students at Love of Learning in the spring of 2018 and assembled by our own Emily Diamond. We are currently taking orders for a pair of 11" x 14" fine art giclee prints of this collage piece depicting hot air balloons rising into the sky above the LOL campus.
All proceeds from these prints will go to the Scholarship Fund.

RAISE FUNDS FOR
AN AMAZING SCHOOL
ARE AN EDUCATION
The Love of Learnng Gala and Art Auction is produced by a volunteer committee of Love of Learning parents. Meeting bi-monthly or weekly through the winter and spring months, our core committee members serve as leaders for the dozens of other parent volunteers who serve on their sub-committees. This event really does take a village to put together and we ask that every family give some time, big or small, to help ensure its success. We do need lots of help leading up to the event so even if you are unable to attend, you can still participate in making our school's most important fund raiser a success. We also need a lot of wo/man power on May 11th and 12th for set-up, run of show, and clean-up. If you have not yet stepped up for a volunteer slot, please contact our volunteer coordinator Melissa Lapp: email@example.com
