School Spirit Baskets for Auction

Here's a look at our school Spirit Baskets that were created for this years' school auction.  Each grade was assigned a color. Parents were asked to bring in anything in their childs color theme to add to the basket. There's all sorts of random items, from iPods, Uggs and Kindels to paper lanters and Mike and Ike's and dish towels. They were an enormous hit and raised a lot of money for the school. And to the ladies who built them, hats off to you.

Smore's Bar

For this years school auction the theme was Cowboy Chic and so we had to build a smore's bar for the occasion. I think it was a success.

Candy Country

I've been a little busy with our move but I'm back!

For the kids biggest school fundraiser of the year, they ask each class to complete an art piece that will be auctioned off during the event. So with Modge Podge in hand, I asked the first graders to collect candy wrappers over the summer. I had each student decoupage two candy wrappers on to regular drawing paper. We let them dry over night then using a map I had blown up, I cut the wrappers into each shapely state and placed all the states together again to create a country.
We added a plaque to the corner, too.
