2014 Auction Week Update
The Painted Rock
November 14, 2013
School is in full swing, the holidays are coming and the planning for the Painted Rock Foundation Auction is underway! Last year’s event was made successful with support from our outstanding Panther community – YOU! If you own a business or know someone who does, please lend your support by donating an item or encouraging others to donate. Every donation helps us fund programs and services at Painted Rock.
We have some great, new ideas and hope you will help us to get the ball rolling. Maybe you have even better ideas on fabulous items for our live or silent auction? Send them our way at
firstname.lastname@example.org. We’d love to hear from you!
This year, our silent auction will be a week-long ONLINE AUCTION event beginning with a family-oriented night of food trucks and fun on Friday, March 21, 2014. The week will end with a adult-only evening that will include food, cocktails and a live auction (more info to come next month) on Friday, March 28. We hope to see you at one or ALL of the events, or at least logged in to the online auction.
If you don’t have an idea for an auction item, but are thinking that you really want to support our programs…it's not too late to contribute to the
252 Annual Fundraiser Campaign if you haven’t already done so. This campaign funds programs and services such as PE, music, math and reading impact teachers, ongoing technology innovation, and a diverse set of student enrichment programs. These are things that make Painted Rock stand out! Any donation, of any size, is appreciated.
Maybe your employer will match you? Give $100 and we get $200 or even $300. We have received $3,622 in matching donations from companies such as Qualcomm, Pfizer, LPL Financial,
HP, Nokia and Toyota. Your contribution could be doubled or even tripled! Click here to search matching gift companies.
Go to paintedrockschool.com or email email@example.com for more information on how to give via check or credit card, in a one-time payment or even installments!
Thank you for making our school ROCK!
Did you know that iPads are being used in the classroom to enrich your child's education?
The Painted Rock Foundation, which is committed to funding technology in the classroom, is excited about this growing program which has been funded thanks to your generous support.
This year, we are implementing an iPad cluster program in which each grade level will have access to a certain number of iPads: 7 iPads for grades K-2 and 10 iPads for grades 3-5. The first grade level, which was our "pilot program", started out with the cluster of iPads and have shared great success. Apps in use include ABC Tracer and VocabularySpellingCity, and we are excited about spreading the program school wide.
