Dear Harbor Families,

On Sunday evening at 6 PM, our annual auction will be opening online! You may want to set an alarm or make a note on your calendar, so you won’t miss out on the teacher experiences for your child, which have limited space and may go quickly! To whet your appetite for bidding, here’s a little teaser about these and some of the other items that will be ready for your bids on Sunday evening:

  • Head of School for the Day
  • Gift cards for staple stores such as Target and Costco
  • Teddy Bear Breakfast with the Preschool Teachers
  • A Student-handpainted Folding Table
  • Gift cards for fitness and spa experiences such as Champion Boxing and Fitness, Glo30, and RTR Pilates
  • A Painting Pottery Experience with Ms. Lori and Ms. Wilson
  • Gift Cards to Kids’ Experiences such as Imagination Stage, KID Museum, the Crayola Experience, Wolf Trap, and the National Children’s Museum
  • A Trip to the Zoo with Ms. Cohen
  • Framed Canvas Artwork, Created by Harbor Students
  • Gift Cards to restaurants such as Founding Farmers, Shake Shack, Silver Diner, Clyde’s, and Chipotle
  • One Session of Camp Harbor
  • A Car Detail at Hersons Honda
  • Puppet Making with Ms. Kaur and Mr. Dempsey
  • Delicious Desserts for the Month of May with Ms. Myers
  • A “Sleepunder” at the School with Ms. Musico and Ms. Zuraf
  • Have the Harbor Bus Pick You Up for School
  • Throw Blankets with Student Artwork
  • Bowling with Ms. Sumpter and Ms. Sarah
  • Gift Cards to Adult Experiences such as Silver Branch Brewing, Escapology, Gret Frogs Winery, and Total Wine and More
  • Reserved Parking for Drop-off/Pick-up
  • And of course, a Harbor favorite… Class Baskets, with themes such as beach/pool, wine, legos, pizza making, and science/STEAM

The above just represents a portion of the very long list of items and experiences you can bid on, so enjoy perusing the list on Sunday evening when bidding opens! Keep in mind that if you see gift cards to places that you regularly visit,  bidding on these in the auction will support the school with money you would already be spending! ? And truly - the class art work, class baskets, and teacher experiences are not to be missed (grandparents and other extended family members may be interested in getting in on these as well)!

I would be remiss if I didn't include a huge thank you to our Gold Sponsor, Hersons Auto Group, for sponsoring the auction this year - and to our Auction Planning Team, the faculty and staff, and parents for your donations to make the auction a success!

Enjoy the online auction experience - and we look forward to see many of you at the in-person auction event, A Toast to Harbor, one week from today! Thank you so much for your support - and here is that link to register!

Warm regards,

Leah Musico
Head of School
