McGilvra Elementary will be holding its biennial auction on Saturday March 22nd at 5:30pm at Showbox SODO. This is the largest fundraising event of the year for the school. McGilvra turns 100 years old in 2014 and hopes to have many alumni attend the auction along with its current families. The money raised from the auction pays for programs that are not funded by Seattle Public Schools. These include the art teacher and supplies, reading and math teachers as well as curriculum, a part time school counselor, technology tools such as Lexia and Pebble Go, teacher and library grants, and classroom tutors.
With many classes having a 29:1 student teacher ratio, these programs are more essential than ever for our children. If you would like to attend the auction, please go to our website and click "Buy Tickets." Tickets are available until Friday February 14th. You can also view our online catalog. If you have any questions, please send us email. Thank you.
