Basket & Project Auction
Join us in contributing a basket or project created by your family.
Families can now contribute their own themed baskets or family projects to our popular auction!
Click here for our Sign Up Genius.
You can go on there and "claim" your basket theme or family project.
In previous years, each class provided a basket, project, and/or individual student projects. This year, classes are still invited to contribute a basket or project, but they are not required to do so*. This is the FIRST year that we are inviting families to contribute to this fun endeavor. Since so many of us are spending A LOT of family time together, we thought that creating family baskets and projects would be fun for our community members. Families were given opportunities to sponsor raffle baskets before 2021, but this is the first time that families can build their own baskets or projects!
If you would like to join us in contributing a basket or project, simply log onto Sign Up Genius Link and claim your basket theme or project. No two baskets and projects should be the same, so please review the other submissions. Themes are welcome to be similar though, i.e. a Summer Fun Basket vs. a Day at the Beach basket.
Need some ideas for baskets and/or projects?
Ideas for baskets can be found on our shared spreadsheet at docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1gtY1sfws-gnTdCsTWw0VYVsqdLq5wwsDXICCYPgaDnw/edit?usp=sharing,
Or you can ideas on our Pinterest pages
Pinterest boards are labeled as class projects, but can be used as inspiration for family baskets as well!
Is your family pretty handy? Work together to build something!
Projects can be found:
Are you all really creative? Review these ideas or come up with your own! Remember to make sure your idea has not already been claimed on the Sign Up Genius. We don't want baskets with the same theme to compete against each other

Not feeling creative?
No need to contribute a basket or project, but log onto our auction website on 4/24/21 to bid on your friends' and neighbors' baskets!
OR have us make a basket for you! We have volunteers who can assemble a basket for you, simply email us at email@example.com to map out your budget for the basket and we will do the rest!
All baskets are due to school by April 16th at 5PM, so our volunteers can take pictures and add them to our auction website. Please include a list of the items that are included in your basket, if you are submitting a basket.
Your basket or project will be auctioned off online on Saturday, April 24th!
Anyone can bid, so share your basket link with your family and friends. We will email you the auction link a few days before the auction.
*Classes are still welcome to contribute to the auction, but this is completely optional, as we understand that gathering items and meeting with others is difficult during this unique time.
