25th Annual Gala Auction Benefitting The Montessori School of Beaverton Saturday, March 10th, 2012




From the Auction Chairs

D h a r s h i n i P i l l a i a nd R e n é e Ru t z

Message From the Head of School Welcome to a celebration of MSB history! The Silver Jubilee Auction recognizes the decades of vision, support and continuing dedication by the community of the Montessori School of Beaverton. Efforts funneled through the annual auctions became the foundation for the very existence of MSB today – a nationally regarded primary and elementary Montessori school on a simple, yet natural campus that provides safe areas to explore nature with excellent AMI teachers and spacious, well-equipped classrooms. This evening, I invite you to enjoy the camaraderie that exists among all of you who have given the gift of Montessori to your child. We all share in the promise of the future through these beautiful, maturing adults of tomorrow. Give as generously as you are able in the spirit of providing the highest quality education possible, to guarantee that MSB will continue to thrive in the years ahead. Thank you for being with us tonight and please know how much your support is appreciated. Carol Bennett

Mission When children are active participants in their development from an early age, when their natural needs and tendencies are recognized and addressed, when choice is allowed and guided, and when responsibility is expected and nurtured, a new child emerges. This child’s characteristics are concentration, self-discipline, love of learning and a respect for others and for the world. This child represents nothing less than a hope for a better future. The purpose of the Montessori School of Beaverton is to assist this self-construction of each individual to his or her fullest potential, with a profound sense of the importance of his or her contribution to the world.

What an honor to co-chair MSB’s 25th auction! Over the years numerous people have contributed to make it the smooth running event that it is today. We are very pleased to have many of them attend on auction night and extend a warm “welcome back” to the past auction chairs joining us for the evening. We couldn’t make the auction happen without the hard work of the MSB families, teachers, and staff. Through the auction process we have come to appreciate the impressive breadth and depth of talent in this community. Which we have shamelessly leveraged! Thank you to everyone who has contributed your time, talent, and resources. We are especially indebted to the people who took ownership of key areas and extend our heartfelt thanks to Agni, Anne, Brooke, Debbi, Donna, Farzaneh, Liling, Mimi, Sierra, Shauna, Tami and their teams. In addition, it has been gratifying to watch new families jump right in and we appreciate their involvement. We’d also like to acknowledge the effort that the teachers put into the quilts, projects, and activities and thank them for allowing the auction into the classrooms. Finally, the staff at MSB is beyond compare and has frequently anticipated our needs before we did. We especially appreciate Kristin’s wealth of knowledge and her generosity in sharing it. Education is more than the rote sum of its parts and no more clearly is this borne out than in Montessori philosophy. Whether cooking, working on abstract math or grammar boxes our children are learning in a collaborative, three dimensional environment which also gives them life-long skills in team work and critical thinking. Skills which stay with them long after historical dates and the names of geographical landforms are forgotten. We feel fortunate to offer this education to our children. As we prepare for the evening, let’s celebrate the reason for being there: our children! It is through educating our kids and valuing the Montessori philosophy that we are coming together as a community on auction night. We hope you enjoy yourselves at MSB’s Silver Jubilee auction!

Auction Procedures

Auction Rules & Guidelines

Bring this catalog with you on the night of the auction. Arrive between 5:00 pm - 5:30 pm so you have plenty of time to review the silent auctions before they start closing at 6:30 pm. Check in at registration to receive your table number, bid card (with your unique bid number for use in the live and silent auctions) and catalog addendum. Swipe your credit card or write a check to MSB at registration; sign for your credit card purchases, collect your invoice, and pick up your purchases on your way out. How the Silent Auction Works

Silent auction items are divided into two sets distinguished by the colors yellow and red. You may begin bidding on all silent auctions at 5:30 pm. View the items and sign your bid number on the bid sheet in front of the item. Return as often as you like to increase your bid, or offer the Guaranteed Price (after which no one can outbid you) by filling in the lower right box on the bid form. Each auction closes at a different time. At the respective closing times, winning bidders will be clearly circled on the bid sheets. No further bids are accepted. If you are the winning bidder, remember to collect your items and invoice before you leave for the evening. How the Live Auction Works

Live auction items are on display in the ballroom. The bidding starts at 7:30 pm. The auctioneer will suggest starting bids and ask you to raise your card to bid. The auctioneer will acknowledge the top bidder. If you are the winning bidder, please remember to collect your invoice, certificates, baskets, and items before you leave for the evening. Bidding Frenzy

Gift certificates are sold in a fun Bidding Frenzy format. The Bidding Frenzy will be conducted by the auctioneer at several points during the live auction. The auctioneer will read the title of each item and sell it to the first raised bid card he sees. Have your card ready for this fastpaced, exciting frenzy. Please take purchases home with you the night of the auction – there are no storage facilities on site. 14

• All sales are final and payment is required on the night of the auction. We will gladly accept payment by cash, check, Visa, or MasterCard, American Express or Discover. Please make your check payable to Montessori School of Beaverton. • The school has endeavored to describe the items accurately, and offers them in good faith and in accordance with descriptions provided by the donors. Items are sold “as is”. No refunds or exchanges will be provided except where noted. The school neither warrants, nor represents, nor is responsible for genuineness, authorship, provenance, or condition of the item. No statement made during the course of the auction shall be deemed to be a warranty, representation, or assumption of liability. • IRS regulations specify that the amount of the purchase price that exceeds the fair market value is tax deductible. Values listed on your receipt are estimates and may need validation for IRS purposes. • Please note restriction dates, conditions and expiration dates on items and services. Restaurant certificates do not include liquor, tax, or gratuities, unless otherwise specified. Refunds and exchanges for cash are not allowed. Purchases must be used within one year of the auction date, unless otherwise noted. • Use of bid number constitutes a legal contract to buy. The closing bid number written on the silent auction bid sheet and circled by the auction committee constitutes the winning bid. In the live auction, the top bid recognized by the auctioneer is a legal contract to purchase the item. • The school reserves the right to add, modify or withdraw items from the catalog. • The auction committee occasionally adds additional components to item donations, when it determines these would enhance the offering. Sometimes the additions are credited to “Friends of MSB” and at other times, no additional, specific crediting of these additions is made. • Winning bidders are responsible for picking up their items or certificates on auction night. The school is not responsible for lost or misplaced items or certificates. At the End of the Auction

• Go to the checkout desk and collect your invoice. Verify your purchases on the invoice. • Go to the item pickup area in the silent room. Your SILENT items and certificates will be distributed to you there. • If you purchased a tangible item during the LIVE auction, you are responsible for collecting it from the display table in the LIVE auction room. Verify this item is present on your invoice. • Bags and boxes are available upon request.

Enjoy! 15

Live Auction

Candid photos of the children in the Trillium Room are framed by their own artwork. Using metal tooling, Katy’s students etched words describing Montessori life into the silver metal of each frame. They then artistically embellished their frames with designs of their own making. The finished product is a thoroughly modern, ten-photo collage that showcases your child’s year in the class. And as your child grows, you can easily swap the old pictures out for new ones.


Thank You The Children of Katy’s Class

4. Nora ’ s C lass Quilt - Spr ing

Interpreting the brilliance of spring, using vibrant colors and specially hand-dyed fabric, this quilt is a wonderfully original piece of artwork that compliments any home. You will find a friendly Salamander climbing up the tree to get a better look. The children of Nora’s class each created their own blossoms by selecting fabrics, tracing circles, dying fabric, and choosing buttons. The older children completed the button sewing. The blossoms were crafted and arranged to highlight this fresh and unique spring tree. The quilt includes blossoms in pink, purple, blue, orange, yellow, and green on top of a quilted mosaic.


Thank You The Children of Nora’s Class

6. Jannie’s C l a s s Qu i lt Blooming G a r d e n

The children of the Cedar Room learned how to sew gathered ‘yoyo’ shapes into puffy layered flowers and utilized their artistic senses to create a beautiful Spring Garden Quilt. It is bursting with colorful flowers and buzzing with insects high and low. Many buttons from Jannie’s collection were used to accessorize the vibrant scene. The quilting is hand-tied, rather than machine finished so that the children’s button sewing has quilted all the layers together!

8 . K at h l een’s Class Projec t F ra m ed Art

Students in the Willow Room were so motivated by their study of birds that they became overachievers this year, creating two class projects! The class investigated the wealth of species that inhabit their own garden, field and forest. And from these observations, they created beautiful and detailed drawings of our local birds, from ruby-crowned kinglets to red-tailed hawks. This fowl-related project follows a tradition of creating a collaborative drawing that is then cut into strips for each student to color a section before reassembly into a stunningly varied piece of framed art. 


Thank You The Children of Kathleen’s Class

1 3 . Ju l i e ’ s C lass Quilt - A W in te r Walk

No matter the temperature, our primary children bundle up and head out into nature. It was these daily walks that sparked the vision of Julie’s class quilt. With the distinctive Northwest woods as their backdrop, students of the Tree Frog Room created their winter-inspired quilt with leaf rubbings, embroidery, beading, and the younger ones marked their footprints on the snowy ground. While the quilt sports the colors of the coolest season: beige, cream, and black denim interspersed with maple leaves, it is sure to keep you warm throughout the year. The quilt is useful as a twin or a wall hanging. 


Thank You The Children of Julie’s Class

The piece includes a memo board and two hinged storage cabinets for keeping month, date and special event tiles stored tidily out of sight. This work of art captures the memories and imagination of your child’s primary years -- it will be up to you to capture appointments!

There’s room for four in this luxurious onebedroom condominium with an ocean view. In the bedroom, you’ll find a king-size bed, the living room has a pull-out sofa bed, you’ll also find a full kitchen and a large dining table that seats six.

And if swimming pools are more your style, you’ve got five of them to choose from. And these aren’t just your standard pools, think slides, waterfalls and heated spas. Even though this resort spans 22-acres, has 20 restaurants and 90 shops, you may want to see what else Oahu has to offer. Do a little snorkeling at Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve, visit the USS Arizona Memorial, admire beautiful Diamond Head and so much more. Start packing your surfboard and snorkel now, you won’t want to miss this vacation! Available December 15th-December 22nd, 2012...perfect timing for winter break. Expires March 2013.

17. Sarah’s C l a s s Qu i lt C ozy Fle e c e B l a n k e t

Sea creatures of every size and color adorn this comfy microfleece twin-size blanket. Swimming in a soft, light-blue background, you’ll spy the childrens’ creations such as coral, octopus, eel, turtle, fish, otter, starfish and whale. Some of these soft, fleecy, ocean-going animals were made by Sarah’s individual students, other, more complicated ones, made by a team of Juniper Room experts. And while each child’s unique work of art shines, you simply can’t miss the ever-present yellow submarine. That’s right, a brightly-colored, Beatles-inspired sea-worthy vessel decorated with each students’ image. Don’t miss this chance to own this unique, comfy, cozy and colorful aquarium on a blanket!

1 8 . A W e ek in Eng lan d

Jump across the pond and enjoy a unique vacation in England’s Lake District. You’ll spend seven nights in a rural cottage - a rather large cottage that can sleep up to 10 guests within its four bedrooms, two baths, spacious kitchen and living areas. Outside the cottage, you’ll find an orchard garden, lawn area and a river - a perfect place to dine al fresco. The countryside surrounding your charming cottage is perfect for touring Lake District National Park - England’s largest, covering 885 square miles. The area is famous for its stunning scenery, so stunning that it has inspired many writers and artists including Beatrix Potter, Wordsworth and Coleridge. You, too, will be inspired by cool, clear lakes and rivers, ancient woodlands, diverse landscape, wildlife, and unique geology and archaeology. There have been people in the Lake District since the end of the last ice age. It is an ideal place for hikers and cyclists. And when you just can’t walk or bike another inch, there are several surrounding towns with abundant shops and restaurants. Take a look at your English cottage online: This package is a seven night, Saturday to Saturday stay. An additional week can be purchased at a 50% discounted rate. Typical summer (high season) weekly rate is $1,200, so you would pay the discounted rate of $600 for the extra week. August 2012 has a wide range of dates available and it’s a great time to be in the Lake District. Based on availability and mutually agreeable dates. Expires March 10th, 2013.

19. Nora’s C l a s s P r o j ect Birdb ath a n d P la n t e r B ox

This story begins with an adventure to an MSB grandparent house, where the tree pedestal was discovered. It continues with a passion for nature, woodworking, glass-blowing, and a lot of big and little hands who sanded the tree, formed the bowl, hammered nails, painted nature designs, and had a lot of fun. Just like every good Dr. Seuss book, The Lorax hides a wonderful story in a silly rhyme, that both adults and kids love. If you are lucky enough to take the Lorax Project home today, one day you too may see “Truffula Seeds” growing into trees, “Swomee Swans” sitting at the Lorax birdbath and your very own “Brown Bar-ba-Loots” playing in the shade eating “Truffula Fruits” and enjoying the wonders of nature. This whimsical package includes a birdbath base with a handblown Chihuly-style glass bowl, hand-painted tile planter box, Truffula Tree seeds, Lorax book signed by the Salamander classroom, a copy of the original 1970s Lorax show, and four movie theater tickets to see The Lorax Movie.

21 . Sa ra h ’s C lass Wag on for 6 th Gr ade Tr ip

This fall, the Juniper room studied the Oregon Trail. That work led to the creation of this one-of-a-kind, medium-sized wagon. A dedicated group of Sarah’s students - Spencer, Anika, Julia, Kian, Noor, and Andrew chose a wagon because you can’t travel on the trail without one! The project entailed intensive research and much help from Tommy and Alan. The kids shopped at Home Depot, borrowed Alan’s tools, cut the wood, assembled the wagon, found the perfect fabric for the cover, built the wire frame, used a cool staple gun, and worked long and hard on attaching the wheels (and learned a lot about axles). The finished project is a true labor of love, one that took months of hard work, a lot of cooperation, and did we mention help from Tommy and Alan? Funds raised from the sale of this hand-crafted vehicle will go directly to the sixth-grade trip, so come on, pony up!


Thank You The Children of Sarah’s Class

24. Robin’s C l a s s Qu i lt An Autum n S t r o l l

Imagine the entire Lady Bug Classroom on an autumn stroll. The footprints of each child circle around an alder tree so vibrant and full of colors that even a few ladybugs can be hidden within. Each leaf and footprint has been hand rubbed and dyed by the classroom. This quilt represents the classroom “walking on the line” in the outdoors while observing the vibrant colors and creatures of autumn. Brown, orange, green, and red leaves atop a quilted landscape make this quilt a true classic.


Thank You The Children of Robin’s Class

25. Sarah’s C l a s s P r o j ec t Words o f Wis d o m

The Juniper room students have gathered much knowledge over the years, and these kids have a lot to say! Each child has written about life lessons learned and shared them with the world via this art piece. They did this letter by letter, hand stamping their messages onto narrow strips of copper. These strips have been beautifully woven together to create not only a oneof-a-kind piece of art, but a very personal display of insight and wisdom from the hearts of the Juniper room students.


Thank You The Children of Sarah’s Class

This timeless quilt captures the distinctive profile of each student in Katy’s class. Every silhouette was hand-cut, appliqued, and finished with satin stitching.

As the festivities of the poker tournament conclude, a celebration party with Mexican fare is planned at the Deadwood Saloon to award the prize money for the tournament and to celebrate what will hopefully be a very financially successful venture for the saloon. You would be a fool to miss the celebration on Saturday, June 9th, 2012 from 6:00pm-10:00 pm.  Available for twenty people.

$50 Thank You Richard Aldersea, Mark Brown & Shauna Pettit-Brown,
