Dear Families,

Fall is here! We put our sandals and bug spray in back closets, trade summer berries for apples, and walk, bus, bike, and drive children to our newly expanded school. As I mentioned at the Community meeting, this Wednesday we will hold our Holiday Auction Kickoff Party at Von Bar.The Holiday Auction is an important fundraiser that helps support our tuition assistance program, staff enrichment, and defrays our school's rising operating expenses. Last year we raised more than $25,000 for our school and we're aiming to build on that success this year.

It's time to think about what contributions you can donate or solicit, or how to lend a hand to the Craft Cooperative to help create the toys and decorations that are always so popular. If every family got their favorite restaurant, shop, weekend escape, yoga studio, spa, or crafty friend to donate something, we'd have a fantastic offering.

Donation forms and solicitation forms are attached and available in reception at all three of our locations. Donations will be happily received via the hard copy forms or by email. (Please include as much information as possible plus any images).

Contact the Holiday Auction Committee if you have any questions or need more information.
