Shoal Creek Parents Night Out
Given these unprecedented times, we have made some changes to the plans for Parents' Night Out as well as our online and live auctions in an effort to provide opportunities to support Shoal Creek in ways that meet this moment.
Auction - Teacher Services and Class Baskets
We have replaced the teacher experience items on the auction site with re-vamped virtual experiences. Our Shoal Creek teachers are excited to host these events for your kids! Many of these virtual experiences are flat fee opportunities with a final purchase date of 5/31/20. Some have limited space so check them out right now!
We have also added the class baskets, which are usually auctioned off at the live PNO event, to the online auction for bid. We are excited for you to check out the creative collections our amazing room parents have put together. Please visit the auction site today to check them out!
Auction - Community Donated Items & Opportunity Drawing
The items donated from the community for our online and live auctions are mainly experiences, and due to Covid 19 are currently limited. These items will be held until a later date when they will be able to be confidently used by you and your families. If you bid on items already, please be assured your credit card has not been billed and you will not be charged. We are clearing those bids and ask when we relaunch the auction at a later time, you come back to re-bid should you wish to win the item.
Our Opportunity Drawing will also be on hold until we are able to hold a live auction event at a later date. All tickets that have already been purchased will be kept and used in the eventual drawing.
Parents' Night Out is now Parents' Night In
While we are postponing the live auction until another time, we are excited to celebrate the end of the year with a Parents' Night In. We are currently finalizing the details of this virtual event to support our school and bring the community together while we are apart. Tickets will be $40. If you previously purchased tickets to PNO they will be applied to this event. If you paid more than $40 (either non early-bird prices or VIP), the balance of your ticket price will be rolled into a credit for the auction. If you have any questions, please reach out to Ted Dawson at . More information with the date and event details will follow shortly.
