The Big Read: Book Buzz #4

Posted January 31st, 2013 by PTA

The Big Celebration (our school-wide book club discussion) for The Big Read 2013 is in just 4 weeks at Clinton School!

Please don’t miss the opportunity to read THE EMPTY POT by Demi and OUT OF MY MIND by Sharon Draper alongside your family — you won’t be sorry that you made Melody, the protagonist from OUT OF MY MIND, and Ping, who stars in THE EMPTY POT, part of your family!

Remember that you can borrow books from the school or public libraries, or purchase them from Sparkhouse or Words (10% discount).

We look forward to gathering at Clinton School on Thursday, February 28 for The Big Celebration.

For more information, contact your Big Read representative Donna Herley or Nancy Sabato.

Tricky Tray/Auction-Preview

Posted January 31st, 2013 by PTA

Hi All,

We are getting very close to our 10th Annual Tricky Tray/Auction (which takes place on Saturday, February 9th). It promises to be the biggest Tricky Tray ever and we are very close to being sold out. It is likely that we will not be able to sell any tickets at the door, so if you plan to come, get in your reservation form before this weekend.

We have an amazing group of prizes this year thanks to the hard work of many Clinton parents and the generosity of many families, local businesses, and corporations.

Over the course of the next week, we will send you previews of the prize offerings so you can arrive at the event with some idea of the prizes you are interested in.

Today, we are attaching the list of delicious dinners (and one brunch) being offered up by Clinton families. This year the dinner offerings are in our silent auction category. Check out the wonderful list attached, decide which one (or more) you’d like to attend, and you can place your bid the night of the dinner. You can assemble a group of friends first and bid on their behalf or you can bid on your own and invite friends later. Some of these are offered at the host’s house, others can be delivered to your door.

Also, attached is a guide to how the evening/event works. If it is your first time, you might be overwhelmed by all the prizes, categories, and bidding options. This attachment will be very useful. Remember, we can only take cash and checks at the event.
