Candy is dandy, but wine is divine!
We need your help! Did you know that there are countless Cabernets, Merlots, Chardonnays, just to name few, helplessly trapped in bottles? You may know some yourself, or heavens forbid, even have some in your very own home. With your help we can provide them with the freedom they deserve as a member of the Great Escapes Auction wine pull!

All kidding aside, our children depend upon the generosity of our school community and the success of our Great Escapes auction to benefit their school experience. You can help by donating bottles of wine valued at $25.00 or more for the wine pull at the upcoming auction.  The Great Escapes Committee will also purchase a bottle of wine for you if you would like to make a monetary donation of $25.00. We are hoping to receive donations of 40 bottles of wine. Whether you are a wine aficionado, and have many bottles you are willing to share, or have one bottle that you can spare, we welcome your donation.

Please bring your wine donations to the office by Feb. 16th, and remember to fill out an auction contract so that we can officially recognize your contribution in the auction program. Contracts can be found on the table at the front door, in the office and on the website.
Thank you,
Jennifer Spillios
Mother of Sabrina (8 th grade) and Everly (4 th grade)

    NOTE: The side lot is ONE WAY ONLY.   

Also, a reminder that your family name card MUST be visible in the front window of your car at afternoon car line.
