How am I involved? (How can I be involved?)
There are many ways to be involved in the auction. One you can volunteer to be part of the planning committee or any of the subcommittees.
Currently we are looking for volunteers to help us set up the two days prior to the auction and then take down and clean up the day after. (the auction is scheduled for Feb 23). We also need help from people to procure both live and silent auction items. Each class has an art project that they complete each year that is used in live auction, we can use volunteers to help the children complete their pieces of the project and then help compile the final product. Each grade is responsible for collecting items for a basket that will be a silent auction item. The grades are assigned a theme for their basket and parents can either contribute items to go into the basket or money so that the basket sub-committee can purchase items for the basket. Information will be going home around the theme your child’s grade has for baskets as well as any other information about the art projects, etc. So be on the look out. You can also contact Amanda for more information.
What are classroom baskets?
Each grade is responsible for collecting items for a basket that will be used as a silent auction item. Each grade is assigned a theme for their basket and parents can either contribute items to go into the basket or money so that the basket subcommittee can purchase items for the basket. Information will be going home around the theme your child’s grade has for baskets. Basket items or donations will be due by December 7, 2018. If you are contributing money or an item, they will go to your child’s teacher.
What are the classroom art projects?
Each class has a designated art project that they complete during school with the help of our Art Project Committee and room moms.The art projects are featured as part of the Live Auction. There will also be two buy it now items, the Kindergarten Cookbook and the 8th grade memory book. You may be asked to send in some supplies, etc. Anything that you will need to contribute will be communicated to you.
Where should my donations go for auction?
If you are contributing an item for the classroom basket, items will goto your child’s teacher. If you want to donate an item separate from the classroom basket, for example you are a cook and want to donate a private dinner cooked for two to be included in the auction, then contact Amanda Gohmann.
Should I go to the auction? Can I invite others? (Why should I go?)
The Auction is a fun filled night of Live Music, food, drinks, auction’s and much more. Funds raised from the auction directly support you by helping the school keep tuition costs as low as they can. Funds also go towards tuition scholarships and helps the school give our kids the diverse education and learning opportunities that they enjoy and benefit them the rest of their lives.
