YES ONLINE AUCTION BASKETS
The annual online auction is a major YES fundraiser and is set for March 19-28, 2019. Each grade level at each elementary school is asked to create a themed “basket” for the auction, and families are asked to contribute new items related to the basket theme or contribute money that the auction team will use to round out the basket with great items.
Our school’s grade level baskets are:
- Kindergarten - Zero Waste Home
- First Grade - Bookworm (elementary age)
- Second Grade - Craft Time
- Third Grade - Biking
- Fourth Grade - Knitting
- Fifth Grade - Family Game Night
