The 3rd quarter here at Advent has been great! Our students have won state championships in math, writing, and spelling! Our students have also won league basketball championships, led student/parent conferences in grades 5-8, prepared for numerous plays, celebrated French food fests, prepared for state French Convention, participated in wonderful field trips (such as Children’s Theater, American Village, Atlanta’s Center for Civil and Human Rights, etc.). This is all in addition to our students attending class and learning the things that we consider core to Advent. What a unique and remarkable place!
We have been blessed by our Lord for so many years serving wonderful children who are taught by an excellent staff and supported in significant ways by families that trust us with their children. There is no more powerful statement about Advent than a parent being able to drop off a child in the morning, and not worry. You have heard it stated many times before, an Advent education actually costs far more than what tuition alone covers. For this reason we have various fundraising events. No event is larger or more significant to be able to continue the difference making education that is Advent than our bi-annual auction.
The 2017 Advent auction provides an opportunity for us to come together as a larger community and celebrate our accomplishments. This year’s auction will seek support for two primary areas:
- Raising funds for financial assistance for students who could not otherwise afford an Advent education
- Sustaining the arts curriculum at Advent; as many schools continue to cut back on the arts for a variety of reasons, through your support of this auction, Advent will remain steadfast in its commitment to having the arts as a part of our core
There are 2 ways to support the 2017 Advent Episcopal School Auction.
- Purchase tickets and attend the event. It will be a night of fun, food, and fellowship.
- Register and bid on silent auction items. Even if you cannot attend the event, consider bidding on some wonderful items.
We love our families! Thank you for your trust and I encourage you to either purchase tickets and enjoy a wonderful event or register to bid on some great items as we raise funds to help our school be the beacon of excellence your family and our city need.
