Special Events at The Learning Center
The Learning Center continues to grow and thrive. Our "Novices", "Players", "Apprentices", and "Voyagers" classrooms have established unique, hard-working, creative, and supportive learning communities. Every day they inspire us to remember the joy of discovery, the warmth of friendship, and the pride of achieving excellence.
Nothing marks the coming of the spring season at The Learning Center like Spring Bling! Each year, the staff and students come together to create our amazing Spring Bling Art Auction & Fundraiser - a unique event aimed at raising funds for our school while giving our school community a fun evening to enjoy together!
Under the tutelage of art teachers Chris, Emily, and Simon, the students create works of art which are auctioned off during the event to the highest bidder. These pieces, which in the past have included hand woven chairs and stools, refurbished furniture, handmade pillows and lamps, and art, are truly one-of-a-kind. In addition to the beautifully handcrafted pieces made by Learning Center students, the event also offers the opportunity to bid on curated baskets and experiences donated by local businesses.
Maintaining our learning communities takes YOUR help, and Spring Bling is our most important fundraising event.
As always, we're focused on supporting our engaging and committed staff members and offering the Learning Center experience to students from all financial backgrounds. We have lofty goals, but as our students know - when you work together you can accomplish great things!
Every year, we showcase some beautiful work from our students, as well as a collection of gifts and experiences donated by our community members. We hope you will participate in some online pre-bidding fun, then join us for the final auction event next to have a go at the biggest prizes!
The 7th Annual Spring Bling Art Auction and Fundraiser will be held Saturday, April 30th, 2022 at the Iroquois Boating Club from 5pm- 8pm. Ticket information will be forthcoming.
