The Auction is the PTO’s largest fundraiser.  All donations are tax deductible.

All money raised goes directly to providing Instructional Aides & French Interns in our classrooms.  These assistants reduce the student to teacher ratio, provide additional support for students, and share French culture.

Just coming to the Soirée helps our kids.
