Rock the Arts

Cocktail Party & Silent Auction
Open to the public!
Wednesday, February 22nd
6:00 – 9:00 pm
Café Fina


This adults-only event will feature cocktails, hors d’oeuvres and fine art displayed throughout the venue available for sale through our silent auction. The goal is to involve more of the community at large and present a more elegant setting to auction the art, jewelry and craft that is donated. All of the donating artists will be invited to the event and have an opportunity to meet potential clients in a relaxed setting. This new aspect of our event should help greater benefit both our school and the artists that donate.

Tickets now available at the door only. 

Listen to our RTA Chair Jackie Camborde and PTA President Kristin Goodman promote the event on the
Richard Eeds Show!

Rock & Glow!

Rock the Arts Main Event
Saturday, February 25th
2:00 6:00 pm
El Dorado Community School


We are hoping to increase appeal for this event by moving it from a weeknight to a weekend. Invitations have been sent to people throughout Santa Fe city and county, and we anticipate a much larger audience for the event. There will be student performances throughout the day, art and craftmaking stations and a special “GLOW ROOM” where kids can have fun with glow sticks and fluorescent objects. Student art will be on display throughout the school, and there will be a second silent auction featuring a variety of fine art, crafts, services, tickets to local events, gift baskets and Teacher Features.

Silent Aution[s]

Yes, this is plural!

A curated selection of professional arts and crafts will be auctioned at Café Fina on Wednesday, February 22, 6-9 pm. Thanks to our generous arts community we have available pieces for auction from local faves such as Joel Nakamura, Ricardo Cate and Janet O’Neal.
 
Corporate gifts from our generous local businesses will be auctioned in the school library on Saturday, February 25th from 2:00 – 6:00 pm. Competition will be high for such offers as 2 Tickets to any Performance Santa Fe shows (value $200), or a family membership to the Museum of NM Foundation (value $100), not to mention a gift certificate for 4 one-on-one art lessons for beginners with Gila Joy Pascale. Over 50 items acquired so far!
 
Last but not least, “Teacher Features” will be auctioned off in the school cafeteria during the main event. A wildly popular opportunity for our students to bid on special afterschool events with our teachers. It is not only a lot of fun, but an incredible fundraiser for our school thanks to our generous teachers.
 
Do you have something to donate towards our auctions? Please contact RTA Chair Jackie Camborde no later than Wednesday, February 15th for consideration.

Fun Run-a-wow!

Thank-you and congratulations!
We wen
t ABOVE and BEYOND our Goal

We are amazed at all the effort and enthusiasm that came out of this fundraiser. We could not have raised our grand gross total of $24,500 without all of the school working together to gather those 714 pledges. After expenses, we will have netted close to $20,000 for our general PTA fund that will go to school programs and materials. Some fun stats:
 
100% of our student body participated in the kick-off, run, and celebration and joined in the fun and spirit of working together for a common goal. 40% of our students were able to collect pledges towards this goal. A whopping 14 of our classrooms reached their goals of $1,000, with Teams Zirulnik, Johnson, and Luke-Skol leading the way.

160 students met their goal of $50, and there were 55 student pledge superstars who raised more than $150 each, including an incredible 20 students who raised more than $300 each. Erick Cohen (4) won our grand prize, raising an amazing $755 for the school! Our other top earners per grade were Varrsha Chenthuran (K), Jacob Arrant (1), Coco Goodman (2), Jaxson Nuzzo (3), Rebekah Bagwell (5), Evan Eadie (6), Jaiden Rogers (7),  & Gavin Cahill (8). Wow!
 
What amazing work all of our students have done. This was most certainly a team effort! As we wrap up this event, we will be getting out the last of the prizes very soon, and, hopefully, students will keep running!
 
A big thank you and shout out to all of our teachers, students and their families, our supporting sponsors, the amazing Fun Run-a-thon committee members, the many volunteers who helped out on our event days, those who donated prizes, and of course, the many, many people who gave pledges in support of our school.
