The online auction is the PTA’s biggest fundraiser of the year. Our goal this year is to raise $50,000, proceeds from which will go to support integral activities such as dance and language instruction, supplies for classroom teachers, technology upgrades and start-up equipment for the high school. In preparation for this year’s big event—that will take place in March 2018—we’re once again rallying our community via Teaser Auction Items. Our goal is to get everyone into an auction mindset: Start thinking about what you might want to donate/solicit (we ask one item/family), bid on our teaser items, join the fun and raise money for our school! https://www.biddingforgood.com/auction/auctionhome.action?auctionId=295582918
