Day of Giving & Virtual Visit — May 14 at 7PM



Virtual Visit With

Head of School Michelle Navarre

Thursday, May 14 at 7PM


Every May, we look forward to gathering with you at our annual Celebration of Learning benefit. Our biggest fundraiser of the year, it is always an inspiring evening with students and faculty that feels like a reunion of dear friends and family. We have postponed our Celebration of Learning for a safer time, we’ll keep you posted when that might be. Until then, we are designating May 14 as a Day of Giving capped off by a Virtual Visit with Head of School Michelle Navarre.

As we all stay home to stay safe, please join us for a Virtual Visit via Zoom on Thursday, May 14, from 7:00­–­7:30pm. Michelle Navarre will share inspiring stories about our students, what joyful learning, character development and Crew look like at a distance while our building is closed, and the impact Polaris makes as we educate our students to be effective learners and ethical people who contribute to a better world. We are excited to welcome friends near and far to our first-ever Virtual Visit. This event is free and open to all.
