What is Your Child Doing on Monday, January 28th?

There is no school on Monday, January 28th, but we’ve got you covered! We are offering 3 amazing art classes for kids in 2nd through 5th grade. Your child will experience 2 hours of hands on creativity and you’ll have a beautiful piece of art. Sign up for one class or pick two and make a day of it.

All classes cost $100 and take place in the Commons at Newcastle Elementary. Get class descriptions and purchase a spot here.

Here is Your Chance to Make a Difference at the Auction

Love a good get-together? Then host one! Parties are a HUGE hit at our auctions and can bring in thousands of dollars to the school. Love to cook? Host a dinner. Have a sport your love? Put together a tournament. Chances are, if you love it, others will too. Contact Allison at for more information about how it works.

We’re on the hunt for all things sweet! Baking a sweet treat to donate for our Dessert Dash is a great way to help us raise money. Or if you have a favorite dessert spot, consider buying something to donate. Contact Dewi Schierholz at to donate.

We want to send some families on some great trips! If you have access to a vacation home, be it cottage, cabin, RV or anything else, please consider a donation. Vacation experiences bring in big bucks to our school and you’ll have the benefit of knowing who’s staying in your place. Contact Allison at if you’re interested in donating.

A Special Thank you to Gold Sponsor, Pacific Capital Resource Group, Inc.
