BRAVO! is where the Bexley community gathers to celebrate and support its outstanding public schools. As the Bexley Education Foundation’s oldest and largest fundraising event, BRAVO! attracts 700+ persons annually to enjoy a casual evening of auction fun, food and socializing.

The event, organized by an all-volunteer committee, features tasting stations from a variety of local restaurants and a silent auction filled with unique items, including artwork created by Bexley students. The creativity of Bexley students and teachers is on full display at BRAVO!, where parents vie to purchase the individual classroom projects.

This year BRAVO! will be held on Saturday, March 5 from 7:00-11:00pm at St. Charles Preparatory School. Admission to BRAVO! is $50 per person or $75 per patron.

If you would like to volunteer to help with the Montrose classroom art projects or volunteer at the event, contact Dana Zager at: danazager@me.com.

Mr. Strait, the Montrose Physical Education Teacher, and the Montrose PTO hosted a Montrose Family Dance on Friday night, January 29, 2016 in the Montrose Gym.

Mr. Strait provided the music and kept the party hopping, both as the DJ and leader of dances that the students worked on as part of his class leading up to the event. The PTO provided some snacks, water and disco type lighting that set the rest of the scene.

Families took part in the Limbo, the Cha-Cha Slide, and a dance called the Ice Cream and Cake.  Folks in attendance also had to the opportunity to witness both the Whip and the Nae-Nae. A fine time was had by all.

The Annual Montrose PTO Spaghetti Dinner was held on Thursday evening, November 12th, and was a great success.

The theme was a Classic 1950’s Rock & Roll Sock Hop. Plenty of people came out to support the Montrose PTO and dine with one another, as over 325 plates were served. People in attendance then were able to go hula hoop and dance the night away in the gym.

Thanks to BRAVO! Cucina Italiana for their support, Chris and Matt Fortney for being long time organizers of the event, Jessica Shipe for running the Montrose Cafe and all the parent volunteers that contributed to the success.
