Dear St. Thomas More School Families,                                                                  December 2014

Greetings! The 2015 Auction Gala Committee is excited to announce “An Evening in Old Hollywood, Lights…Camera…Auction…!” This year’s event is on Friday, March 6th at 7 pm in the Friends and Family Hall so please mark your calendar early and join us in Old Hollywood!

Be prepared to walk the red carpet at this glamourous event! We will have a Hollywood Star raffle, delicious food, music and dancing. This event will be a wonderful and fun night out!  All the proceeds from the Auction Gala benefit the STM Home and School Association (HSA) and serves as the school’s largest fundraiser of the year.  In recent years, your generous contributions to our Auction have raised between $60,000 and $70,000, annually.  These funds have helped to supplement tuition assistance and capital improvements for our school, have helped to enhance the music and art programs, and have contributed to the purchase of IPads and Surface Tablets for the classrooms.

We have many fabulous items to bid on at the Auction!   Is a relaxing lake or mountain North Carolina getaway weekend what you need?  We have vacation homes to bid on for both!    Or perhaps you haven’t played the many challenging and exclusive golf courses our area is so well known for?  The “Triangle Golf Tour Package” can help you cross these off your list!  You can also bid on one of our “Family Fun Packages” that will guarantee to entertain your family with museum tickets, recreational activities, movies, lunch, and sweet treats for everyone.  And let’s not forget Mom:  Date Night, Health & Fitness, Mom’s Day Out, Yoga and Shopping Parties at local boutique(s), Ladies Night...and much more!  We are guaranteed to have something perfect for everyone!

The Class gifts will also be out on display and available for bidding on the night of the event only. These items are creative and unique forms of art, made by the children in each classroom and will be cherished forever. Our wonderful teachers are planning some wonderful “Features,” also up for bidding on the night of the Auction!

There will be something for everyone to bid on so please, come light up the night and be a shining star in “Old Hollywood” in March with us!

Hope to see you all there!

New and improved: Uniform Resale!!

The school has a long history of selling used uniforms as an HSA fundraiser, and that tradition continues this year better than ever!
 
As children outgrow their uniforms, they are washed and donated to the school office - ready for other kids to wear them with pride! The HSA Used Uniform committee has volunteers who maintain the inventory of clothes and prepare for sales held periodically throughout the year.
 
This year, the uniforms have a new permanent home in the "Chair Room," which is next to the kitchen in the lower school dining hall. Shopping is easier than ever with the clothes now hung up and sorted for the Middle and Lower schools. Each item costs $2.00, and payment may be made by cash or check payable to STM School, noting "Used Uniforms" in the memo line. Please use the 'honor system' when purchasing, as every dollar goes directly to the HSA to fund your child(ren)'s activities at the school! Donations beyond the $2-per-item minimum are accepted and greatly appreciated by all.

Thanks, and enjoy your shopping!
