We are forever grateful!

To everyone who received a certificate at the auction: please reach out to the donor as soon as you can to make arrangements to redeem your item. Similarly, if you as a donor know who won the item you donated, please reach out to the winning bidder. If you have a question about who won the item you donated, please contact Allison ( or 703.842.0488).


Post-Auction Sale

Because there were so many terrific items available on the night of the auction, a few great ones got lost in the shuffle and did not receive bids. These few items are available now in our after-auction sale. We think you'll agree that these items are worth a second look! Don't forget, all sales benefit financial aid.

Contact Allison Niedbala ( or 703.842.0488) to indicate your interest in purchasing by 5 p.m. on Tuesday, March 13. First come, first served!

There's still time to purchase your child's class project if you haven't already done so! Order online through Wednesday, March 14.

For families of K Foxes, K Frogs, 1st Goats, 2/3 Buckeyes, 2/3 Viceroys, 4/5 Coopers, 4/5 Redtails and 6th grade: To pick up your child's project, stop by the Advancement office at Norton House, 5622 Norton Road at the top of the Burgundy driveway. If you haven't yet paid you can do so at that time. We'll be in the office during parent-teacher conference days (March 15-16).

For Junior Kindergarten, 1st Sheep, 7th grade, and 8th grade: Your child's project will be available in the coming weeks. We'll let you know when it's ready.
