We need YOUR help to raise money for OUR school!

At the Hays Elementary Spooktacular 5K, a silent auction is one of the ways that we raise money for our school.  Businesses and individuals make donations to the auction.  Each grade level at Hays also puts together baskets around a common theme.

Listed below are the grade level themes and ideas/suggestions for items to send….

  • PPCD/PRE-K AND KINDERGARTEN – BASKET O’ FUN:  Board games, game cards (Uno, Skip-Bo, etc), jump rope, bubbles, chalk….
  • 1st GRADE – ARTS AND CRAFTS BASKET:  Markers, crayons, craft items, paper, paint, brushes, play-doh…
  • 2nd GRADE – GARDEN BASKET:  Small shovels, gloves, seeds, small pots, garden gnomes, Home Depot/Lowe’s gift cards…
  • 3rd GRADE – COFFEE, TEA, AND CHOCOLATE BASKET:  Flavored coffees and teas, cocoa mix, mugs, Starbucks gift cards, chocolates…
  • 4th GRADE – GRILL BASKET:  Marinades, rubs, BBQ sauce, grilling accessories, grilling cookbooks…
  • 5th GRADE – SPORTS/OUTDOORS BASKET: Balls (baseball, football, soccer, basketball), protein bars, sports bag, gift cards to Academy/Dick’s, fishing supplies, sports-team apparel, water/shaker bottles
  • 6th GRADE – PET BASKET:  Dog/cat toys, food bowls, grooming supplies, treats, leash, collar, PetCo/PetSmart gift cards…

These items are suggestions…feel free to be creative and use your imagination. TJMaxx, Home Goods, and Bed Bath & Beyond are good places to start if you are unsure where to shop.  Please send your donation no later than Thursday, October 19th. You may send it with your child, or you may drop it off in the office labeled “Silent Auction” with the grade level noted.  If you have questions please email us at hays.spooktacular5k@yahoo.com.
