The Edmonds Elementary STARS Foundation is hosting its 14th annual STARS Auction, “Down and Derby” Saturday, April 26. It’s a time when community members, staff, teacher and parents will don their best big hats Kentucky Derby style.
The school is looking for sponsors for this festive night that is attended by over 150 community members. Sponsors will be featured in the auction catalog, website and acknowledged in the school newsletter that is distributed to over 300 families. They also invite donations (timeshares, items, etc.) and of course community members are welcome to attend.
The auction funds the non-profit STARS Foundation, which includes parents, teachers and community members. The Foundation supports enrichment and learning opportunities at Edmonds Elementary, and also services as a valuable resource for teachers, says Edmonds Elementary parent Heidi DeBoer. Examples of key Edmonds Elementary activities funded by the Stars Foundation in the 2012-2013 school year include:
« Science Exposition
« School Musical, “Suessical”
« Enrichment field trips including the Seattle Tilth
« Funding of additional multicultural books for the school library
« Scholastic Book Fair
