The Parents' Club creates and implements opportunities to strengthen every aspect of school life, in and out of the classroom.

The annual auction is the club's main fundraiser and provides crucial funding for the school each year. Proceeds from past auctions have funded the Lower School Outdoor Learning Cove, scientific calculators for the Upper School, faculty and staff professional development and the Annual Fund. Auction proceeds have also funded speakers, programs and social gatherings for parents to promote community.


Guests will be greeted by different circus acts, featuring seasoned performers from The Krazy Circus, Tim March and an incredible magician from the well known Philip & Henry company. Prepare to be amazed by fire acts, performers on stilts, a mime, a contortionist, a live knife throwing show, juggling and clowns. Enjoy cocktails and an upscale circus themed menu. 



Mobile Bidding

The auction will once again feature mobile bidding throughout the evening. Attendees will be able to purchase tickets online as well as view, monitor, and bid on auction items using a phone or tablet. Even if you cannot attend the event, you will be able to bid on silent auction items remotely. The live auction will be handled by an auctioneer.

Donate Auction Items

The silent and live auction is comprised of items including travel packages, custom parties and dinners, home and beauty products, gift certificates, jewelry and more. The auctions would not exist if not for the generosity of parents and friends of the school. If you have a product or service that you would like to donate to the auction, please contact Mimi Killoren or Rosalind Mills.
