RESERVATIONS: just 3 weeks until the auction! We hope you can make plans to join us for this really fun event, and show your support for our school! Each year the funds raised at the auction help purchase much needed items to help our students be the best possible versions of themselves. Some of the past items: Chromebooks, iPads, Smartboards, etc. This year we are hoping to increase classroom reading libraries, STEM Purchases, and/or help with creating a foreign language option for our students. Please send your reservations into the office, or purchase your tickets online at: www.peterpaul.gesture.com. Tickets include all you can eat food, beer, wine, soda, and entertainment. We also are saving one table per grade level, so there is no stress on who you will sit with. When you purchase your tickets, please put who you want to sit with, and if not, we will put you at your class table. What a great way to meet other parents and socialize together.
RAFFLES: Winners will be drawn the night of the auction, and you need not be present to win! Raffle tickets went home in past Friday folders! Payment and completed ticket stubs can be dropped off at the school office or you can purchase your raffle tickets online at: www.peterpaul.gesture.com. If you need more tickets, the school office has extra. Raffle tickets and auction tickets will also be on sale after all Masses next weekend, October 28th and 29th.
CLASS BASKETS: If you are sending in a contribution for your class basket, please do so as soon as possible. Shopping is underway. There are some very exciting baskets this year!
DONATIONS: Donated items should be sent in to the office. We will be creating all the baskets on November 5th, so please have them to the office by November 1st. This way we can make sure that they are included in the auction program, which must be printed beforehand.
Yeti Cooler of Booze: Please continue to send in your donations of beer, liquor and mixed drinks components for The Cooler of Booze to the school office (via an adult!). IT’S GETTING CLOSE!!
