PARENTS:  Are You Interested in Participating or Donating to a Silent Auction?
There will be a K-12  Silent Auction interest meeting in Mr. Eisenson's 8th grade classroom on 8/16 at 5:30 pm. He is trying to set up a silent auction to bring funds to our three schools, but can't do it alone.  His goal is to have this Silent Auction off campus in November. I would have students write persuasive letters to the community to try and get donations for the auction. He would need parents to help get donations, secure a location, and help run the auction.   Again if you are interested and able to volunteer, he would love to chat on 8/16 at 5:30 pm in his classroom. Thanks.

Questions? Contact Mr. Eisenson at aeisenson@voyageracademy.net
