Auction Day 4: Keepsake Day!

Welcome to Day 4 of the online auction! 

Today’s theme is all about bidding on items that will memorialize your child’s elementary school years and keep them remembering the special teachers and friends they made at Cherry Crest. Our tireless auctioneer¬†Matt Lorch will give you an overview of these items, and Cherry Crest parent and Classroom Art co-chair Loni Hayhurst will tell you about the classroom art and why these art pieces are such a heartwarming tradition at the Cherry Crest Auction. Be sure to check out your grade level pages for those projects as many have photos of the students in the act of creating their masterpieces!

And while you are there, please consider raising your virtual paddle in our newly-added Fund A Need category to make a cash donation directly to Teacher Support and Curriculum Enhancement projects.

“Hi there. I’m you auctioneer Matt Lorch with your daily Cherry Crest auction update. And as we move our auction online one of the time honored Cherry Crest traditions is the classroom art projects. Several classes have created true works of art ready to be displayed in any home. Your kids are so creative, artistic and talented and they’re going to be so surprised and overjoyed when you end up being the highest bidder and their classroom art project ends up in your home. Also this is a great time to take a look at your child’s teacher book. This is incredibly personal, the book will include an inscription from your teacher – a memorable keepsake your child will hold dear beyond their elementary school years. Remember this, the auction isn’t just about bidding on amazing items, it’s also about supporting the Cherry Crest PTSA and in turn your child’s education, so while you’re on the auction website, raise your virtual paddle, make a donation – know this, it is 100% tax deductible, and you are supporting your student and other students in our community. Remember, you see the sign behind me, tomorrow was when the auction was supposed to take place, and we’re going to wrap things up tomorrow with some really exciting news so until then thank you and give me a virtual elbow bump and we will see you, online, at the Cherry Crest Auction.”
