Holiday Auction Extended to 11:59 PM on Sunday, December 8th

Bidding Extended to 11:59 PM on Sunday 12/8!  www.biddingforgood.com/newamsterdamschool

The Holiday Auction is on a roll ...  bids are coming in fast and the competition is intense for many popular items.

But there are still bargains to be had (and fundraising targets to be met!) so...

We've decided to extend the auction through
Sunday, December 8th at 11:59pm!

Yes, another four days to make sure that you don't miss out on this fabulous opportunity to do your holiday shopping AND support our wonderful school.  And a little more time to encourage friends and family and anyone you know to get online and join the bidding.  

Every little bit helps.

Thanks so much for your support and happy bidding!


The Holiday Auction is open to all.  Please pass on to family and friends and encourage them to pass it on, too.

There are so many amazing items!

Thank you from the Garden Committee

Dear Parents,
In the spirit of the season we would like to take a moment to thank you for your generosity! Our Fall Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle Clothing Sale raised over $800.00 in funds for garden plants and supplies. Used by over 20 families who were able to join us on Fall Family Garden day and in over 11 different projects scattered throughout the garden! (700 spring flowering bulbs, 45 cabbages, 28 bags of mulch.. please see the full list at school)!
El Jardin de Paraiso, a beautiful magical place, in a public space, where on Family Garden Day family after family who entered the gate that morning  brought with them their light, love, and community spirit to keep it safe and beautiful! And boy we had a lot of fun doing it! We are grateful to all the children and their families for all their hard work and efforts!!
And, as our Holiday Silent Auction Benefit comes to an end next week we'd like to remind you of the incredible power of participation and encourage you to bid generously and often until it ends!
