As you probably know, the annual QAE Auction, 2020 Vision, is coming soon — Friday, March 13th. If you haven’t RSVP’d yet, the last day to purchase your auction tickets is this Wednesday, March 4th. Get yours now...
If you haven’t been to the auction before, it is an incredibly special event for our community – a night where parents can socialize, dress up, hang out with our incredible teachers and staff "in real life" and, most importantly, focus on funding the programs that make QAE the place we love!
We rely on the auction to fund over 50% of our PTSA budget for the school year – and you may not know this, but the funds raised this year will pay for CURRENT year programming. Just a few of the things PTSA is funding this year include our Kindergarten aides, reading specialists, author visits, IslandWood, Social-Emotional Learning (SEL) and Racial Equity training for our staff. NONE of these features of QAE are covered by state funding.
Each of us has chosen to send our kids to Queen Anne Elementary for different reasons, but I’ll bet at least a few of your reasons are directly funded by the Annual Auction.
If you’re waiting for the last minute to buy your tickets, that’s pretty much now! Get your tickets here:
