Saklan Speakeasy / Fund-A-Need
Each year, the Saklan community hosts an auction to help raise funds to do some of those extra things that make Saklan a special place. The event itself serves another purpose, and that is to bring us together as a group and get to know each other better. Last year’s auction was more fun than I imagined it could be, and we are topping ourselves this year. This year, we will have tarot card reading, swing dance lessons, and a DJ to end the evening in style. Our live auction prizes include a Pixar Tour as well as a night in an observatory with an astronomer.
In the past, we have raised money to renovate our Science Lab and give students increased exposure to STEM education. A couple of years ago, the community raised enough money to “amplify” our arts program; renovating our music and art spaces, purchasing African Drums and a Kiln among other things.
This year, our Fund-A-Need will go towards creating a multi-use space out of our current Pavilion. We are currently working with an architect to design a space that will allow us to enclose the space during cold or wet weather, and to open it up during the warmer months. Besides lunch, we would use the space for assemblies, meetings, PE classes, and special projects. Design images coming soon.
I hope you can join on the 14th of March for our Saklan Speakeasy; it promises to be a great time for a great cause.
