A Night at the Museum: Explorers Climb to New Heights


Dear Friend of The Museum School:

The Avondale Education Association is thrilled to announce its 10th annual auction benefiting The Museum School of Avondale Estates (TMS). This special event, A Night at the Museum: Explorers Climb to New Heights!, will take place on November 9th 2018, at the beautiful Evan Hall at Agnes Scott College. More than 350 parents, community members and local business owners will be in attendance, and marketing efforts will reach more than 500 local families, 2,500 Avondale Estates residents, and an extended network of grandparents, friends and community members through newsletters, social media, banners and other advertisements of the event.

The Museum School of Avondale Estates is a public DeKalb County charter school that opened its doors in 2010. The museum-school concept is a proven model founded on research about how children learn best: through personal exploration and hands-on experience fostering exploration, discovery, and creativity. To learn more about The Museum School, please visit www.themuseumschool.org.

We hope you will consider becoming a sponsor to help us reach our goal of raising $150,000. These critical funds will be used to support our various student and teacher enrichment programs.  These enrichment programs are an essential part of our proven school model of project-based learning. However, support for these programs is not part of the state and county funds we receive per student.

We have various sponsorship levels available. We also welcome in-kind sponsorships, with pledges receiving the benefits equivalent to the level associated with the fair market value of the donation. Please be sure to pledge your sponsorship no later than Tuesday, September 25th so that we can include you on our banners, in the catalog and other event materials. Checks can be made payable to The Avondale Education Association and mailed to the attention of the Auction Committee, 923 Forrest Blvd, Decatur, GA 30030.

If you have any questions, please email Auction Chair, Emily Halevy, at tmsauction@gmail.com.

Thank you for your careful consideration of this opportunity and what it would mean to the children and families of The Museum School. We depend on our community to keep climbing!



The 2018
