Auction Team Is Seeking Classroom Art Project Leaders

A beloved tradition of our annual fundraising event is the auctioning-off of classroom art projects. These one-of-a-kind art pieces range from whimsical to jaw-dropping, but are always handcrafted with care and community spirit. The funds raised by the projects are essential and directly benefit all Cherry Crest students: field trips, classroom aides, toy maker, and lunch room theater are just a few of the programs that are supported by the classroom art proceeds.

Are you crafty? Enjoy working with students? Have a passion for memorializing your child’s elementary school years? We need YOUR help to bring these magical pieces to auction night! As the classroom art project volunteer you will purchase supplies (reimbursed by the PTSA), coordinate one or two days and times at school when students can be pulled out in small groups to work on the project, and put the final touches on the art piece such as mounting and framing.

Our classroom art committee auction leaders will hold an informational session on Thursday, January 16th from 8:15 AM to 9:30 AM in the Library to answer all your questions about how to lead an art project for your student’s classroom, including timeline, budget and loads of ideas. 

Email us at to raise your hand to lead a classroom project or to ask any questions about this important volunteer opportunity. Otherwise, we look forward to seeing you on January 16th!

As always, you can direct any general auction questions or ideas to
