STILL UNSURE WHAT THE AUCTION IS ABOUT?
Just in case you still aren’t quite sure what the Auction is all about and why it’s so important for our school and community, here’s a little refresher…
The Auction is the school’s BIGGEST fundraiser of the year. Not only does it raise the needed funds to support important programs that benefit all children, but it is also a fun, social gathering for parents, teachers, administrators and school supporters that strengthens our Stoddert community.
Wait…Why does the school need to raise money?
Sadly, the city of Washington DC does not provide the necessary funds that Stoddert needs to operate. It is critical that Stoddert’s strong parent community contribute to cover important expenses that benefit all our children. The PTO uses the funds we raise through the auction to pay for important items that help each and every student, such as:
🔵 Giving teachers stipends to buy classroom supplies and learning tools;
🟡 Paying for educational subscriptions like RazKids, iReady, Clever and Zearn;
🔵 Supporting the salaries of the science and garden teachers;
🟡 Beautifying and maintaining school grounds; and so much more!
🔵 WE HOPE TO SEE YOU THERE!!! 🟡
