FROM THE PTA

Below you will find the agenda for our second meeting of the year. We have two guest speakers this month, our amazing counselor, Sara Matteri, and Deb Jones from FAN (Friendly Area Neighbors). 
 
We’re off to a great start. Our fundraising efforts thus far have met or exceeded our budget which is always a good sign. Celina Johnson-Hess has been working tirelessly on our upcoming silent auction which is set to go live on www.32auctions.com on Monday, November 13th. Andrea Siedler submitted our first Box Tops collection which was over $450! Kim Harper-Kennedy has done a great job raising awareness about our eScrip and Amazon Smile programs, both of which have steadily increasing revenue. 
 
In community building news, Krysta Alves and Sarid Ditton have planned two well received staff appreciation events. In September they put together a sandwich station for staff on Back to School Night. October’s event was a soup-er lunch with delicious homemade soups served in bread bowls. Anna-Minna Pavulans-Sherwood and Shareen Vogel have been working hard to organize our Adams Book Exchange, receiving new books, sorting them, and making sure they are placed in the correct bookshelves. It is so wonderful to see all of the gently used books make their way into the hands of new readers.
 
We hope you’ll join us on Thursday, November 9th to learn more about what the Adams PTA is doing to support our wonderful school.  

 

Adams Silent Auction – November 13-16

Our annual silent auction is just around the corner! You will be able to view items and bid on them online at 32auctions.com November 13th-16th.

We will also have an in person viewing of all auction items on November 15th at Oakshire Public House. That same night a dollar from each pint purchased will be going straight back to Adams. It’s a win-win! The auction has something for everyone. Whether you’re wanting to purchase tickets to Disneyland, or Wheel of Fortune, looking to take 13 friends on a pedal powered pub tour with Pacifc Pub Cycle, hoping to relax with a cup of Labrang, or Yogi Tea, or wanting to purchase an American Girl Doll in time for Christmas, we have you covered. We also have generous donations from Burley, Oregon Shakespeare Festival, Friendly Street Market, Evergreen Aviation Museum, Eugene Symphony, and Oregon Bach Festival among many, many others. Mark your calendars and join us November 15th to generously support Adams and bid on a great gift for yourself, or a friend!
