AUCTION NEWS ~ we will be holding our biggest fundraiser of the year on April 14, 2018. The auction this year will be more than just the auction; it will be a parent’s night out!

We are giving two tickets to anyone who collects $200 worth of donation or sponsorships. You can ask anywhere you shop, eat, or anyone you do business with. Make sure and put your name on the form so you get credit for any acquired donations.

This fundraiser provides so many great opportunities for our children and we would love to have more parents come out and have a fun night while supporting our school! Thank you for your continued support of our school & our children!  Charity Simchen, charity.simchen@gmail.com
