On June 4th, as students proudly show parents their classrooms during Open House, there will be a buzz of excitement coming from the MPR. Rows and rows of tables will be covered with Themed-Baskets, Big Ticket Items, and descriptions of Teacher Time. Crowds of people will be browsing, making tough decisions, and some will even be jockeying for position to get their names written down before time is up! What is going on, you ask?
It’s the PTA’s Annual Silent Auction!!!
Every year, Room Parents gather donations from their families to either create a Themed-Basket or purchase a Big-Ticket Item on behalf of their classroom. College Park Staff are asked to donate “Teacher Time” which is always a very hot commodity! Last year, the Silent Auction raised over $7,000! And 100% of these funds go directly back to programs that support and enrich the education of our College Park students. Make sure to stop by the Silent Auction on June 4th during Open House!
