Get ready to start bidding! The annual Fairmeadow online auction is almost here!
Our online auction will run from February 22 to March 6, 2016. It gives the entire Fairmeadow community (plus friends and family) a chance to win some cool stuff and unique experiences while raising money for our school.
We’ll have lots of awesome items for you to bid on or buy — summer camps, children’s activities, home-cooked meals delivered to your door (you can’t beat that!), spa gift certificates, restaurant gift certificates and so much more. This year, you’ll also be able to buy our first Fairmeadow cookbook, “Fairmeadlow-licious,” which is a collection of the community’s favorite recipes!
If you have anything to donate to the online auction, please go to our website to enter the donation details. Any questions? Please contact Tracy Ballard-Tal at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Donations to PiE make up to 75% of the discretionary funds for staffing that each Principal has to use for his/her own school. This year, Fairmeadow received over $225,000 from PiE donations.
To see PiE at work, all you have to do is take a peek inside your child’s classroom.
