Auction

Glassybaby Designs 2022
     It's here! We are excited to offer two new St. Louise editions. Our very own Mika Walker personally designed both etchings. These will sell quickly, so plan to pre-order yours now while supplies last. They make excellent gifts and will arrive in early December. Thank you for your generous support of St. Louise.
     
     Each year St Louise hosts one of its biggest fundraisers of the year, the St. Louise auction! Established to raise money for the school and build community – it's a celebration you won’t want to miss.  
The Action will be held February 4, 2023 at the Bellevue Westin.
Auction Theme: All the World is my School and All Humanity is my Teacher

     The St Louise auction is an evening event where parents and staff come together to bid on donated items and packages to raise money for our school. The evening is a fun, relaxing way to meet other parents and catch up with your favorite families and staff members. Money raised at the auction greatly benefits the school and helps bridge the gap between the cost of educating a child at St Louise and the tuition we charge.  

Funds raised from the auction helps to:
  • Keep tuition affordable and accessible for all families
  • Purchase additional school supplies and new curriculum
  • Investments in technology and student enrichment
  • Maintain competitive teacher salaries
  • Fund operating expenses not covered by tuition

Volunteering

Volunteering for the auction is a great way to support the school, meet other families within the community, and make new friends. Hours spent volunteering for the auction counts towards your family volunteer requirement.
