Help Wanted:

  • Silent Auction:  We will be hosting our annual silent auction as part of the talent show Friday, May 8th.  This is a MAJOR fundraiser for us and helps us be able to help pay for the Writers in the School program we hosted this spring. Instead of asking a few people to get a lot of items for the silent auction we are asking everyone to do a little bit!  Each classroom will be preparing a themed-basket that we will be auctioning off at the event.  Next we are asking EACH of you to donate one item.  It can be something you make or something you can offer as a service.  It can be something you ask a business to donate.  It can be something you buy and donate.  It doesn’t matter how it comes to you, but we need you to do the work of obtaining it and getting it to us by April 30th.  You can designate what you are bringing to the auction on our sign-up form at Doing this work does count toward your Three for Me commitment.  If you have any questions, please contact Beth Deming at or 303-642-0841.
