The Spring Fling for Central was held May 13 at Hop Meadow Country Club. Each year, the auction raises more than 25 percent of the income for the Central Elementary School PTO general fund.
The general fund is essential to providing cultural programs, teacher support, technology enhancements, the student publishing center, as well as many other terrific and essential programs. Last year, funds raised during the auction provided new laptops, ELMO cameras, books, Flip cameras, a printer, and other necessary items for our classrooms. This is the biggest fundraiser of the year.
Scot Haney of WFSB-TV was back as auctioneer. About 100 parents and teachers were in attendance.
