PTA Silent Auction
Each year we hold a silent auction to raise money for much needed equipment for our school. In past years we have raised money to supplement or replace thousands of library books, and purchased games for the math lab, among other projects. Please help us make this year's Silent Auction the best ever.
We are encouraging each family to provide an item for the auction, either through participation in the class baskets, soliciting a favorite community merchant for an item, or by providing an item from your family (new or handmade).
If you aren't able to help procure items for the auction, please come to the Auction and see if there is something you'd like to purchase, to help our school. It is going to be so much fun!
