PTO Updates (Auction, Holiday Drive, etc)

Phoebe families,

It has been a busy few months and the PTO has been working hard to adapt to all of the changes this year.  See below for details on a number of important programs, including a video wrap up to jogathon which makes our hearts very happy.  We thank you for all the support and enthusiasm we have received in 2020.

The holiday online auction is LIVE

Behind on holiday shopping? In search of stocking stuffers? You are in luck! The very first Phoebe Hearst online auction is now LIVE.  With the cancellation of the Spring Fundraiser, we have a number of items that we are auctioning to the highest bidder.  This includes 2 dates for holiday carriage rides through the 40’s, a Yeti cooler, and donated baskets and restaurant gift cards.

Visit the online auction here.

Choose “Get Started” to be an online bidder and bid on these items. Auction ends this Tuesday, December 8th at 6:00 pm.  

Our fundraising efforts this year

Thank you to everyone who donated to the jogathon this year.  We raised $80,000 which will support ALL of our programs this year (sadly, there will be no Spring Fundraiser due to COVID, so this was our one shot to fund the budget).  This includes our art program, continued landscaping at Phoebe to build out more outdoor spaces, teacher funds for their classroom, operational expenses and so much more.  

Virtual jogathon video

The virtual jogathon itself was a big hit.  Our Phoebe dragons blew us away with their enthusiasm, energy and smiling faces while virtually running around their neighborhoods!  Check out our compilation video to feel all the good vibes!

Blankets, Books, Bears and Board games Charity Drive

The 2020 Holiday Drive is here! This year we are collecting Blankets, Books, Bears and Board Games/Puzzles to support foster youth in our community.  This is an especially hard year for these kids, so let’s bring them a little cheer by donating NEW, unwrapped items.  Drop off in the PH office before Monday, December 14th or you can order via and ship directly to Children’s Law Center of CA.  ATTN: BBBB 8950 Cal Center Drive, STE 245, Sacramento, CA 95826.

Online Spelling Bee

The Spelling Bee is back! Stay tuned for details in Mrs. Pechette’s upcoming Sunday messages.  

Upcoming dine and donate

Phoebe has an upcoming dine and donate at MOD pizza (2100 Arden Way) on 12/8/2020 from 4:00-8:00pm.  20% of proceeds come back to Phoebe.

As we said, lots going on! Thank you for your support and enjoy the holidays.
