Is this a live auction or silent auction?
Our auction has both a silent auction and live auction component. There’s something for everyone!
What does the money go towards?
The money raised at the auction goes towards the general RCF PTA fund. Through this fund the PTA can provide engaging cultural arts programs, before and after school enrichment programs such as Believe Achieve, teacher grants, supply reimbursement for all staff members, library and media upgrades, at – home academic enrichment, professional development, community building events like the fall picnic, spring fair, multicultural night, the talent show and so much more. Thanks to generous support from parents and friends RCF PTA is able to provide a vast amount of academic enrichment to EVERY child.
What is the “Special Ask”?
This year the school has asked us to provide extra support to their in-class, small group reading instruction material. The group reading books they are currently using are aged and don’t provide current content or cultural diversity that we love and honor at RCF. With the money raised by the special ask portion of the auction we hope to be able to update the library of books teachers can select for their reading group levels. All donations provided to the special ask are 100% tax deductible. To learn more about Reading Safari, the company that would provide the books go here: https://www.mondopub.com/articles/SafariBrochure.pdf
