How does the Auction benefit our school?
This year, to honor the 10th anniversary of our beloved classroom spaces, we are raising the money to pay off one remaining small business loan from the aftermath of a devastating flood in the old Co-op location. Thanks to the passion and generosity of parents, teachers and the local community, our school has almost fully recovered from that disaster, but we are still chipping away at those loan payments. Erasing this debt will allow more than $3,000 a year to be redirected toward programming and enrichment for our children, and toward retaining the finest teachers. That is an amount that will make a real difference in the annual operations of the Co-op.
For this special anniversary year Auction, let’s give as generously as we can to the Co-op community that gives us so much!
