Winter is Coming….(The Winter Online Marketplace, that is)

Our Winter Online Marketplace launches Dec. 7. It will be a great place to purchase items and experiences for holiday gifts. Everything in the marketplace is donated to us, either by our own Newcastle families or by generous businesses in our community, allowing us to put ALL PROCEEDS towards continuing our great PTSA Programs in 2021/2022 and beyond. Help us make the marketplace GREAT!

  • Search your house for things to donate: Unused gift cards (any denomination), unused toys/household items/sports equipment/etc, and future sports or event tickets - WE NEED THEM!
  • Do you have a service you could donate (eg. interior design service, landscape, handyman services, tutoring/educational services, etc)?
  • Do you have timeshare or vacation rental property you're not using or are willing to donate?
  • Airline miles/hotel miles expiring? Upgrades?
  • Love to put together creative gift baskets? WE LOVE THEM and so do our families!

Contact us at auctionnewcastle2021@gmail.com to arrange donations.

A special Holiday Box will be available for donation drop-off on Tuesdays from 3:45-6pm at the front entrance of school. Donation forms are available for tax purposes. Again, all proceeds from the Marketplace will benefit Newcastle Elementary in the years to come!

What is an Auction and Why Do We Have One Every Two Years? 

We understand that we have families from all over the countries and all over the world, many of whom may have little to no experience with US public schools, with PTSAs, or with school auctions. Get your questions answered HERE and reach out to our auction team with other questions.

We’re Collecting Items for the Auction

The success of our auction depends on having items on which families can bid. We need you! Clean out those garages, drawers and closets and see what you might have that someone else might want. We need

  • Unused gift cards (any denomination, though please note the dollar value)
  • Unopened toys, electronics, household goods and more!
  • Event tickets (theater, sports, anything!)
  • A family vacation home
  • Unopened wine
  • If you think someone else might want it, we need it!
