Every spring, we celebrate our children, our parents, and the entire community with a huge party that includes dressing up, fast-paced bidding and lots of fun. It doesn't hurt that it benefits the school, either. Our Auction contributes to the overall operating budget that supports the mission of Open Window School. In addition, each year we select a specific Fund-A-Wish project to address a unique need of the school and our students. In the past this has included a renovated library, a new common space for middle school, air conditioned classrooms, additional parking, gym and theater upgrades, and building our endowments.
