WESTERN ROUNDUP DINNER & AUCTION REMINDERS
Monday, March 20, 2017
WESTERN ROUNDUP DINNER/AUCTION ~ Saturday, March 25, from 4:00 p.m. until 7:00 p.m. at Chabot College:
We hope you are ready for some good food and fun fellowship this weekend with your school family. The excitement for teachers and students has mounted as class projects are nearly finished or may be finished and on display for your viewing pleasure. Last Friday, teachers spent a portion of our work day creating baskets for the silent auction.
DOORS will open at 4 p.m. and DINNER will be served promptly after prayer.
Please plan to arrive on time as it promises to be a full house with friends and alumni in attendance. It is recommended to buy your chips and drinks before you get your main meal; avoiding your hot dog to become cold. The teachers will be serving along with parents who have volunteered. After eating, stroll around to take a look at the silent auction items and bid on some. Please accompany your children outside to run around afterwards as running inside the cafeteria is NOT allowed and unsafe for ALL attendees. We will be announcing all activities throughout the evening to ensure that you will miss nothing!
It is IMPORTANT that you are outside supervising your students. Chabot College is an open campus and other organizations use it at the same we do. Last year, I was informed by students on Monday, after the dinner, there was bullying going on by other boys who happened to be on campus while we were there. I understand that our parents took care of it, but I wanted you to be aware of the need of supervision for your children. The teachers have other duties to fulfill during the course of the evening and will not be able to supervise outdoors play of our students.
MAKING PURCHASES at the AUCTION
The school will be accepting cash, checks, or credit cards for purchases. The pay-team consists of Marty Jones, who is one of our former presidents of the parents’ club. Mrs. Tseng, and our parents’ club treasurer, Chad Seiji. The Go-payment system of Intuit for credit card purchases will be used by Mr. Bland. As we are charged a transaction fee for each processed credit card, there will be a $50 minimum this year.
UNSOLD RAFFLE TICKETS:
If you have NOT sold or DO NOT plan to use the raffle tickets which were sent home with your student(s), please send them back to school so that we are not having to print tickets (wasting paper).
AUCTION BOOKLETS AND DINNER TICKETS:
If all goes according to plans, your ordered dinner tickets along with the auction booklets both will be sent home on Wednesday, March 22, with your student.
If you signed up to bring desserts for our dinner, please have them here on FRIDAY, MARCH 24, if you are unable to bring it on Friday, drop it off by 3:45 p.m. on Saturday. Thank you so much!
PARKING ON SATURDAY at Chabot College, March 25: Security is strict about parking.
Please pay attention to parking signs/fees and comply with guidelines to avoid receiving a ticket. Daily parking meters can be found throughout the lots.
“LET US ENTERTAIN YOU!”
The children will be performing at the end of the auction. They’ve been working very hard learning songs for your enjoyment; therefore, please plan to stay until the very end. What more could we ask for? Good food, fellowship, delightful entertainment, and shopping in one night!
Once again, the teachers will not be able to supervise outdoors playtime at the dinner/auction. Nevertheless, teachers will be speaking throughout this week about our expectations of our students’ behavior and to make it clear to them that they are to seek your permission/supervision to play outside. We would like you to HELP reinforce the expected behavior our students have been taught for fieldtrips or any school outing. If your child needs to stretch his/her legs, please take them outside and supervise them; STUDENTS AND/OR FRIEND’S CHILDREN SHOULD NOT BE ALLOWED TO RUN AROUND INSIDE of the building. We want all of the attendees to enjoy themselves and not allowing your children to run around inside, unsupervised will help in this area. For the safety of all our attendees, we appreciate your support. At the same time, we do understand that children are full of energy and need to get rid of some to remain calm; therefore, if it is raining, there is a breezeway where children may play protected from the wet weather. Thank you ahead of time for helping to keep everyone safe!
Be sure to join us this Saturday from 4:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m. for the annual Western Roundup Dinner/Auction at Chabot College!
