The Maria Montessori School continues to monitor the evolving situation related to COVID-19, and to promote the safety of our friends, families and community, we have made the difficult decision to cancel this year’s Regatta and Duck Race scheduled for Saturday, April 25th at the school.
Thank you for your understanding and continued support.
Join us on April 25th for a day full of fun!
Each Spring we celebrate our school and our community with the Maria Montessori School Regatta and Duck Race. The morning of the Regatta kicks off on the school campus (740 Harbor Bend Road, Harbor Town) with children’s games, take and make art, grilled food, kayak rides in the pond and much more. The Wacky Boat Contest dominates the afternoon, with families teaming up to build Wacky Boats using only cardboard and duct tape. The teams then choose a member to climb in the boat and race it on the pond. We finish up the afternoon with local music.
9:30 Kids Fun Run (Music to Ben’s Park and Back)
10:00 Children’s games open, food, kayaking in the pond, etc.
1:00 Let the Wacky Boat Building Begin
