Before the pandemic, OP-C students took field trips, attended STEM Night, participated in Student Council, and met friends over pizza for Chat and Chew. All of those programs, and many more, were funded by direct donations or through our fundraising events, like the yearly school carnival and silent auction.
Over the last year, donations have been down, and we haven’t been able to host our normal fundraising events. We want things next school year to be as normal as possible, but to make that happen we need your help. We need donations – money, gift cards or products – to fill baskets which will be auctioned off between April 30 and May 7.
We hope this auction will boost our shrinking budget so next year we can provide our students and families the normal field trips, enrichment activities and classroom enhancements that they know and love.
If you or someone you know is interested in donating gift cards or products for the auction, contact our Auction Committee Chairs, Suzie Shepherd at firstname.lastname@example.org or Lindsay Bucl at email@example.com. We will not be collecting items for classroom baskets this year, but parents are welcome to gather items and create their own basket to donate if interested.
Stay tuned for all the fun auction items for sale to include picnic lunches with teachers, sports gear, restaurant gift cards, and a special handmade OP-C quilt!!
