Our Spring Auction has several fundraising components...

  • Online Auction
  • Signature Events
  • Teacher Events
  • Live Auction Items



Why do we need the Spring Auction?


We need this event to raise important financial support for our school!  


A few examples of what the dollars we raise at this event can do:


  • Ensure we can continue to bridge the monetary gap of decreased federal, state and city funds.​

  • Allow our children to continue with Math & Reading class size of 20:1 (vs 32:1).

  • Allow Kindergarten classes to maintain dedicated full time aides to each class of 32 five-year-old students.

  • Provide our front office with a dedicated staffer.  (Without whom our Principal & Vice Principal would be buzzing in visitors, writing tardy slips, calling home with sick kids, assisting families with late lunch/homework & instrument drop off and many other time consuming tasks!)

  • Quickly replace non working air conditioning units in our building and other unexpected expenses that we face.

  • Continue the successful Arts Partnership Program that bring us the beautiful "Showcase Nights" where we see the results of traditional curriculum taught in uniquely creative ways with professional artists.

  • And many other initiatives and support of Hawthorne's daily budgetary requirements.
