St. John parents love to study! More than 25% of poll respondents said they spent most their time in high school in the library.  Close seconds were the theater and the student council office.  Thank you for all of the responses! We’ll have another poll in future auction emails! 

Wanted Auction Items
We have already received some amazing items for the auction, but we’re always looking for more.  Do you need help with deciding what to donate? Here are some items we still need:

  • Sporting event tickets – Seahawks, UW games, Sounders, etc.
  • Alcohol – bottles of wine, spirits, etc.
  • Themed gift baskets
  • Cash donations are always welcome and can be made on-line.

The next procurment drop off date is Thursday, February 13th, but you can bring your items to the Auction office located in the Administration building anytime between now and then.  Thank you for your donations and your procurement efforts!

We encourage all families to honor their tuition contract of $250 for donating or procuring items for the Auction.  All money raised goes directly to the school’s Operating Budget.

Volunteers Needed

  • Volunteer Coordinator – We need someone to manage our Auction night volunteer needs.  This role can be managed from home and requires email communications and spreadsheet management.
