Dear RMAE Parents,
Please read the following announcement from your RMAE PTO:
GET YOUR AUCTION ON! Come and GET YOUR AUCTION ON and support RMAE. Mark your calendar for Friday, April 10, from 7:00 p.m. – 11:00 p.m. at the Wild Game. Tickets are $30 a ticket or $50 for a couple. This is an ADULT ONLY function so enjoy visiting with our Rocky Mountain Academy parents and staff and Buy, Buy, Buy! Tickets are available at: http://www.rmae.org/pto/2015auction
Our SILENT AUCTION will have goodies from not only some of our favorite eateries, shops and businesses but fabulous donation from our generous Rocky Mountain Academy parents to include photography sessions, yoga classes, snow board lessons and some beautiful cabins and condos in Breckinridge, Florida and Winter Park. We’ve also kept the Live Auction favorites from the past — Director for the Day, Emcee for the MS Musical and the Reserved Parking Space! And don’t forget about the priceless KID ART that our kiddo’s work so hard to create and show off for all to see and bid on at the live auction.
We have added two new opportunities to contribute to Rocky Mountain Academy. We are pleased to present for the first time….”Teacher’s Bears”. Our ever-creative teachers have each designed their own pottery bear in their own unique fashion. Keep an eye out also for our life-size Rocky Mountain Bear. He’ll be wearing a number of tags with items that the school needs that range in pricing. No bidding necessary. Just grab what you would like to pay for and bring it to the checkout.
Child Care–Finally, as an added bonus, our very own Laura Grissom owner of Pinnacle Gymnastics has offered an Open Gym the night of the Auction for parents to drop their kids off for $20 per child. Make a reservation emailing email@example.com (website: www.pinnaclegymnasticsevergreen.com)
