Saturday, March 28,2015, is the date of this year’s school fund raising auction. It will be held at the St. Demetrious Greek Church. This event raises over 50% of the PTSA’s annual budget. The funds are used to reduce class size, provide extra reading support and support the multi-media, art, music and green house programs.
This year’s auction chair person, Maureen Gaines, is hoping for a big turnout. Past auctions have brought over 300 supporters from the Montlake community to this important and fun event. Maureen is also hoping that both parents and other Montlakers will make donations to the auction. This can be done by going to the auction website and down loading the donation form.
In addition to donating items or services to the auction, supporters are encouraged to buy advertising space in the auction catalog to advertise a business or service. The catalog will be distributed to hundreds of Montlake area residents. All donations made to the school are tax deductible. The PTSA is a 501(c) (3) non-profit organization.
The Montlake Community Club is a strong supporter of our neighborhood school. It continues to be one of Seattle Public Schools best performing elementary schools. This is in part due to the excellent enrichment programs and strong financial support from the parents and the neighborhood.
