This year the PTF's (Parent Teacher Fellowship) big fundraiser is the auction. The PTF holds this event every other year. We collect used donations as well as new items from local and area businesses to auction off in the live auction or the silent auction.
Past items include:
- trip to Amish country,
- trip to Chicago,
- tickets to Kings Island,
- tickets to Newport Aquarium
- eagle collections
...and much more.
In addition to the auction, there will be a concession stand selling breakfast and lunch, along with a bake sale.
Proceeds from the auction go to help the school in a variety of ways. The playground in front of the school was purchased with PTF funds. Teachers have been given bonuses from the auction.
All of this is done by volunteers from the school families. This event is a huge undertaking, and we would love to see everyone involved in some way. See below for committees and how you can help.
This committee is in charge of preparing for, organizing, arranging, and running the silent auction. They will send out flyers for basket donations, keep a record of all registered baskets, prepare baskets for display, and type up bid sheets.
