Dear Bresnahan Parents!

The Newburyport Education Foundation’s 2020 Lighthouse Auction is coming up soon and we really need your help! The auction will be held virtually November 1-7, and in the past the class gifts have been some of the largest revenue generators thanks to all of you. 
 
We still have many classes in grades K-3 at the Bresnahan that need a parent or 2 to please volunteer. Find a fellow parent and work together to help create class gifts to be auctioned off. Thank you to those of you that have already signed up to help! Click the link to the Sign-Up genius here:

Sign-up here!

For gift ideas, you can visit our Google Photo Album  for pictures of past gifts.  Pinterest is also a great resource!  We have found that offering Venmo as a form of payment can also be easier for some parents.

Thank you in advance for taking the time to join in this great community-wide event. Please feel free to contact me directly with any questions.
Sincerely,
Stephanie Walsh
