Auction 2016 – Recap

discipline emia 9-24-13 case-01

A very humble Thank You for the parents and staff who attended last weekend’s Auction. It was a fun night as we all ‘Twisted’ the night away. The outfits and hairstyles were incredible! Although we successfully raised over $130,600, we fell short by $16,000 of����our monetary goal for Fund an Item.  There is still an opportunity to give to this great cause. ��������  

The FUND AN ITEM –  is one way that your Resources makes a difference for every student, every day.  It’s a little different than the Direct Give, which helps provide for the essential.  Historically, the FUND AN ITEM  is an avenue for parents to direct their dollars and focus them to something specific that will take us from good to great.  Some of things that have helped make Schmitz Park so special and unique from other schools.  Past Parent groups have generously funded Singapore Math curriculum, Grade Level Reading Material and Reader’s Workshop curriculum, tutors, technology for students and teachers, and an artist-in-residence to write our art curriculum.  Programs and tools that directly benefit our current student body.

This year, the Fund an Item has an unique opportunity to raise money to supply our new home with tools and resources that will reach every student and teacher at our new Genesee Hill Campus.  Your generosity will honor the commitment of past Schmitz Park families and set the example for future Genesee Hill families.  

If you are able to donate to this great cause go to our auction website. We also have some fun items to bid on or purchase. Check out our Online catalog or donate to Fund An Item at
