A Dream Come True!
May 20, 2016

It is with great joy that I can finally share pictures of the completed gate.  It turned out beautifully and it is truly a wonderful piece  See more
Susan Engdall

THE STORY:

Harvard, Princeton, The University of Arizona, - all places of learning known for their beautiful main gates.  Why a beautiful main gate?  It is an artistic celebration of the prepared environment that one is about to enter.  What a beautiful way to greet all to the  exceptional learning and respectful interactions that happen on our grounds and in our classrooms each and every day at Augustus H. Shaw Montessori.

A magical, whimsical entrance would be a lovely and meaningful addition to our campus.  And what a great first step in the planned beautification of Shaw Montessori.

I have secured a very talented metal artist, Sr. Hector Fabela Cardenas, to complete the work of Shaw’s main gate.  The photo is a rendering of his concept.  Delight and surprise are the essence of his organic piece.  To keep costs down Sr. Cardenas will be working with the current main gate structure and will embellish what already exists. 

Let's make this gate OUR gift to this group and future groups of children. Corporate sponsors can be approached for other projects of course - but to keep the main gate funding specifically from families (past and present) would be amazing.

All levels will make a difference and are meaningful.  From *$10 on up - whatever a person, family, or group can contribute matters and will make the gate funding happen. The cost of the gate is $10,000 and the goal is to have the funds raised by Sunday, February 14, 2016.  NOW EXTENDED TO MONDAY, FEBRUARY 29TH.

Yes, the 14th is a Sunday but let’s deliver a great Valentine’s Day gift to our school.

The amount of $10,000 sounds daunting, but there are  270 families at our school and if everyone gives it works out to an average of $37 per family.  Everyone will give at different levels, but when it is broken down – it’s not such a large amount.  If the gate comes in under budget, the balance will be used towards the other 3 gates that need refurbishment.

All donors will be added to a drawing for a sculptural piece that our gate artist, Sr. Hector Fabela Cardenas donated to our school. ALSO, DONORS WILL BE INCLUDED IN A BEAUTIFUL DONOR REGCOGNITION POSTER THAT WILL BE FRAMED AND DISPLAYED ON CAMPUS.

Please be sure to share this fundraising effort with friends & family via Facebook, Instagram, email, texting – get the word out via your favorite format.

Thank you so much for all that you do for Shaw Montessori.

Sincerely, Principal Susan Engdall
