TIS Auction 2011 Update - and ONLINE auction

Record breaking auction results

Congratulations to everyone who played a role in our record breaking 2011 auction. We have crunched the numbers and here is what the TIS community was able to achieve. Overall, we estimate the auction raised $260,000 in gross proceeds. Net of expenses (we haven't yet received all the bills), we estimate the profit from the auction will be $200,000, up 7% from last year and 36% from two years ago.

Over 100 members of our community contributed  $83,900 towards Alfonso's Choice: Special Appeal for Educational Priorities. We surpassed our goal of $75,000. This will enable us to fund at least $30,000 worth of library and classroom resources, $25,000 worth of technology and $20,000 worth of professional development. If you wanted to support the Special Appeal, you may do so until  December 31,2011 by bringing a check to TIS or clicking here.

This spectacular result is thanks to the support of our community who so generously gives both its time and money to support our school! Thank you.
