A message from the Committee:
Please see our latest silent auction item list here,which now includes gift baskets from IGA, Chocolate Arts and a pair of lower bowl tickets for the Canucks and Kings on Friday March 31st complete with a Behind the Scenes tour.  There are also many useful gift cards, noon hour, after school, and extracurricular programs, spring & summer camps and interesting experiences at a bargain price. You are invited to make your bids online until Friday February 17th at 2PM. After this time, please come to the school to view many more great items and make your bids in person. The Silent Auction ends on Friday February 17 at 7 pm.  At that time, the highest bidder wins the right to pay for the item – regardless of whether it was made electronically or in person.     Please support this pilot silent auction, even if you can’t make it in person.
If you are planning to come to the Spring Festival tomorrow, note that early birds will enjoy a sculpting experience beginning at 5:30 PM hosted by 4Cats, freeing parents and guardians to check out the silent auction items.  There will also be a donation for a great gift opportunity.  We sincerely thank you for your generous contributions.
