Calling All Volunteers!

As you know, the 69th Annual Chili Supper and Silent Auction is fast approaching. In order to make this a successful event, we rely on our amazing parents/guardians, teachers, and community members to help put this on. We have a number of volunteer opportunities ranging from set up, to serving, to assisting our silent auction on November 2nd. Please take a minute to view the current volunteer sign up. Thank you for all of your continued support and we are looking forward to seeing you there!

Help Make Classroom Baskets for the Annual Chili Supper

Our 69th Annual Chili Supper and Silent Auction is fast approaching and we need your help! On November 2nd, hundreds of Big T families, past and present, community members, and district employees, will gather for our only fundraiser of the year. As part of our silent auction, we ask families to donate to their child’s classroom themed basket. These are often some of our most successful auctioned off items! Please turn in donation(s) with an attached receipt to your child’s teacher no later than Friday, October 25th. Thank you for your continued support and we look forward to seeing you at the supper!
