The Randolph PTA online auction will run February 1st – February 15th. The online auction link is available NOW!!!. There are close to 200 items ready to be bid on! This is the Randolph PTA’s biggest fundraiser of the year, and all of the money raised goes to support the children at Randolph. The PTA funds support field trips, summer mailbox books and other literacy initiatives, and other requests from teachers and staff. Just before school started this year, the PTA was able to purchase a laminating machine for our teachers! There are two ways that you can make our auction a success:
- Take a look at the auction items and bid on items that you’re interested in! All items start well below their value and most have “buy it now” prices less than their value as well.
- Spread the word! Individuals do not have to be part of the Randolph community to bid on items! The more people that we have participating in the auction, the more money we can raise for our students! Start thinking about who you can share the auction info with once it is live!
