Dearcroft’s Golden Anniversary Celebration

Celebrating 50 Years!

On Friday June 15th, at Dearcroft Montessori School at 7:00 p.m. To end this school year, Dearcroft Montessori celebrated 50 years a school! Dearcroft’s alumni, friends, and families  gathered for a relaxed, outdoor evening to celebrate Dearcroft’s Golden Anniversary with live music, great food and drinks!

 

We  were excited to be joined by our ‘Dearfriend’, Mike Branton, one of Canada’s finest blues guitarists. Mike provided our musical entertainment with some great blues and classic tunes. Catered by a long-time business in the heart of Downtown Oakville, Seasons Restaurant who give back to the Oakville Community by catering many charity events.  Serving up some special martinis and cocktails to commemorate this special occasion was  Zirkova Vodka. Zirkova Vodka is partnered with Oceanic Global- the international creative non-profit committed to protecting the environment and world’s ocean against irrevocable damage. Dearcroft is delighted to partner with these philanthropic businesses who have a commitment to giving back, locally and globally. At Dearcroft we are very excited to be developing a new collaboration with Dalhousie University’s Ocean School, a program educating Grade 6-8 students about coastal management, ocean pollution, climate’s impact on the oceans and conservation of marine species.

‘Dearstock’ Blast From The Past

We loved seeing everyone at our  ‘Dearstock’ Fall Festival Blast From The Past!

Dearcroft  students and parents joined us for a trip down memory lane to 1968, the year that Dearcroft’s long-standing legacy began.

After picking up their child/ren from their classroom, the festivities  began in the backyard and included crafts, a bouncy castle, our annual Junior High chili cook-off, and a student-led sing along to some ‘Dearstock’ songs of the era.

Students were ready to show their spirit with tie-dye t-shirts, and parents sported 1968/Woodstock costumes and won the “Dearcroft Spirit Award”.

It was a great way to start the year off with a chance to connect, relax and begin celebrating our 50th anniversary.
