Kaleidoscope Gala

Since 1963, The Lillian and Betty Ratner School has been dedicated to empowering our diverse community of students to find joy in learning and to become their best selves. Our students are toddlers through 8th graders, from a wide variety of socio-economic, religious, and ethnic backgrounds—a kaleidoscope of individuals. This year, we are honoring our 55 years of providing an “Outside the Box” education, where students are recognized as individuals within our welcoming community.

Our Kaleidoscope Gala will take place on Sunday, April 22, 2018, at the Museum of Contemporary Art Cleveland. We are raising funds to advance our curriculum of Creative Thinking and Connectedness, particularly in the areas of Montessori Math, Art/Makerspace, and Science/Robotics.

Ratner students, alumni, and parents provided testimonials about what Ratner means to them, and the importance of scholarship funding for so many of our families. This video debuted at the Kaleidoscope Gala on April 22, 2017.
