Art Auction: 
It's the time of the year when we begin to prepare for our 4th Grade Art Auction fundraiser.  It will be held the evening of April 13th.  The funds raised that evening will help offset the cost of the Sacramento trip and Indian Hills. The event we display/sell student artwork and have a silent/live auction.  Last year we raised over $13,000, which knocked over $100 per student off the cost of the trip!!!  The event was a huge success because of the parent involvement.  This event is what you make it!

So, here's what we need...

We would like every family with a child going on the trip to make contacts with businesses and try to round up at least 5 donations that could be sold as part of the auction.  Think restaurants, theater, experiences, goods, services, etc.  It is best to make personal contact and to ask people you have relationships with or have done business with.  We've sold everything from hand painted signs to legal services.  All donations are tax deductible.  I'm attaching a donation letter that you can print, or if you need copies you can request them from your child's teacher.  All donations can be given to your student's teacher as soon as you receive them.

I'm also looking for a team of people to help with the actual event.  This would involve collecting donated items, organizing and packaging items, and helping set up the day of the event. Please respond to this email if you would be willing to be a part of this team.  A meeting will be hosted in the near future :)  



I am so thrilled to be your child's teacher! Check out my "About Me" section to learn more about me! We are going to have a great school year full of new adventures!
