Book Sale

The Adobe Bluffs PTA and Mrs. Lingner are partnering up for a new opportunity for getting new books into our kids hands!  Every Thursday we will have gently used books for sale at pickup time, from about 12:15 to 12:45 (if it's raining we will set up in the MPR).  Paperback books are 50 cents and hardback books are $1.  We will be rotating the supply out every couple weeks so come by and pick up and new book or two! All proceeds go to support our AB library.  If you would like more information or would like to help, contact Carol Rodman at hautmair@me.com.


Silent Auction Results

The results are in.... we brought in a record-breaking amount at this year's Silent Auction - $12,592, a 50% increase over last year's revenue! Thanks to all who devoted their time soliciting donations, selling raffle tickets, creating classroom art pieces, and organizing the event.  Our small school with a big heart really comes together for events and so many of you contributed in whatever way you were able.  Thanks to those that donated a basket for the kid's raffle and for the generous donations of Amazon gift cards for our teachers.  We are tremendously grateful for the community support from local businesses that allowed us to raise this money for our school.  A HUGE thank you to our teachers for donating teacher time including pizza lunches, bowling, ice cream social, movie parties and even a Horse Adventure.

All funds raised support our Adobe Bluffs Educational Foundation which pays the salaries for our PE teacher, Computer Resource Assistant, Impact Teacher, Compass Learning, iPads, Campus beautification and grants teacher wishes that make an immediate impact in our classrooms.  Look out for more information about what your Foundation has planned for this year.  Happy New Year!
