Class Basket Themes & Suggested Donation Items

 SpringFest 2016 Silent Auction

The New Market Elementary Parent-Teacher Association (PTA) has been busy getting ready for our biggest event of the year – the 2016 SpringFest on May 13, 2016! SpringFest provides an opportunity for the students, their families and the community to join in an evening full of fun, food, games and a silent auction, while helping to raise funds for New Market Elementary PTA.

Where will all the funds go, you ask?
The PTA is critical in providing financial support to the students, teachers and the school. 100% of funds raised at SpringFest will be reinvested into New Market Elementary. This school year the PTA has funded teacher sponsorships including the purchase of BookFlix, Animoto (online video creation), National Geographic and Flocabulary subscriptions and additional art supplies. Student field trips, assemblies and books for the library are also funded.

A little support goes a long way!
We need your support again this year to help fill the classroom baskets with donated items for the silent auction. Due to your donations last year, the classroom baskets were among the most popular and overall made the silent auction a great success. It was your contributions that made this possible.

This year’s class basket themes, per grade, are listed below. Please do not feel obligated to stick with your grade level/s, you may donate an item to another class basket if desired. Students can drop off donated items in any classroom from now until April 26, 2016. However, our basket makers would appreciate them as soon as possible!

Busy parent with no time to shop?
Feel free to send in a monetary donation; we would be happy to pick up a basket item for you! In the past parents have generously donated $10-$25, however, any amount is appreciated. Cash or check – made out to NMES PTA – can be sent to school in an envelope marked “PTA Silent Auction Class Basket Donation”. Or, for ease and convenience, you can donate directly online here.

If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to us. Thank you so much for your time, consideration and support! We hope to see you at the auction!

Sincerely,
New Market Elementary School PTA (nmesspringfest@gmail.com)
