2015 Silent Auction & Dance – March 7
at The Church of the Atonement
Dig out your old leg warmers and parachute pants, tease those bangs and jump in your little red Corvette for the "Don't Stop Believing in the 80's" 2015 High Point Silent Auction & Dance on Saturday, March 7 from 7:00 - 11:00 PM at the Church of the Atonement. The event, that raises money for the HP PTA, is always a great night out with other HP parents and there are many ways you can help make it a success. We'll need donations - tickets to events, art, crafts, spa days, sports games, restaurant gift certificates, etc. We also need items donated to grade level baskets (details forthcoming) and you can always donate some time working the event. Contact Autumn Murray (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Stacie Connerty (email@example.com) to help in whatever manner works for you!
Buy your tickets now to secure two free guest (non-HP parents) tickets! Click to download the Parent Letter and return it with a check to your child's homeroom teacher.
