What is it?
The Spring Jubilee is an evening of food, fun, and of course, fundraising. It represents, by far, the PTA’s largest financial contribution to our school budget. At the Spring Jubilee, you can:
- Bid on silent auction items, ranging from the whimsical to practical, from family to personal
- Purchase raffle tickets for a chance to win a feature raffle item of your choice or an item from the general raffle
- Sign-up for special events sponsored by Crocker/Riverside families
- Enjoy dinner, dessert, and face painting for the kids
- Dance and sing to music by DJ Buzzardball
The money raised from Spring Jubilee funds many critical programs, such as:
- Classroom enrichment and field trips
- Music, science, arts, and history assemblies
- Staffing and materials for the library
- Art and Garden Docent Programs
How can you help?
- Come to the event!
- Encourage your child to see raffle tickets. (There are prizes for the top sellers!)
- Sign-up to attend some of the parties, bid on silent auction items, and take your chance in the raffle.
