Save the Date For Auction Action Meeting
 
Are you:
  • Looking to meet new and like-minded parents in our community?
  • Wanting to make a difference in the daily lives of each and every student at Burroughs?
  • Interested in learning more about how to participate in one of Burroughs' key fundraisers?
We need your help!

Join Us:
Thursday, May 23rd from 7-8pm in the Media Center 

Why:
At this time, the Auction committee is urgently recruiting a Chair for the 2019 fall event. The PTA invites you to respond to this "Call to Action" in the hopes of filling this key role prior to the end of this school year.  If you have been curious to get involved with the Auction, but didn't know where to start, this no-commitment, brief meeting is for you!  

Additional Information:
The Burroughs PTA relies on approximately $80,000 raised by the Auction every year to purchase the Singapore Math Curriculum, hire Teachers Emeritus for individual reading and math intervention, and build a reserve fund for future budget shortfalls. Without this fundraiser, the curriculum and staff would be at risk.  

Please contact Catherine Lipinsky with questions or interest.
