WMS SPRING GALA

Every spring, the school holds a community-building, inclusive celebration and fundraising event. This year’s Gala will be extra special as we celebrate our 35th anniversary and pay tribute to the arts and our Italian and Montessori roots. The gala is an evening, adult-only event, held at the Inglewood Golf Club so please reserve your babysitters now.

Amidst the fun, friends and food, we will have a live auction, including a Raise-the-Paddle, an auction of classroom art masterpieces and the highly sought-after Head-of-School-For-a-Day opportunity.
