Congratulations, Villa Academy, on a beautiful, memorable, and record-setting auction! We raised a total of $437,538. Thank you to all of our attendees, supporters, sponsors, and volunteers!
Not only is the Magic+Mischief auction a record-breaker, but so is our Fund-a-Need! We are over $161,000 and counting! If you haven’t yet donated to Working our Way to the Water, there’s still time. Remember, your FAN gifts can be matched by your employer. Donate online. And if you haven’t yet seen the FAN video with all those cool vintage photos of Villa, you can watch it here.
Please take a few minutes to complete our Auction Survey. We appreciate your feedback!
AUCTION ITEM PICK UP
You can pick up your auction items from Francesca Rogers on the 2nd floor of the convent across the breezeway. Pick up will be more efficient for you if you contact her ahead of time.
You’ll definitely want to check out the fun shots from the auction Photo Booth. Any photo is available for you to download at no cost. Just open the photo in a new window, right click and make your selection.
URGENT TAX FRAUD NOTICE
Please review the emails sent to you this week from John Milroy regarding the URGENT tax fraud notice.

LOST & FOUND NEWS
It will be time to purge the Lost & Found closet soon! There are many great items still in the closet found in the Fall. We will be purging the closet by the end of March, please come check before then. This is also a good time to remind everyone to label your students’ clothing, bags, lunchboxes, water bottles, and anything else they bring to school. (If your students change clothes at school for any reason, please label every piece of their clothing they plan to change in and out of.) It really helps us identify found items quickly – and as you already know, we the volunteers deliver found items to the classrooms free of charge! Questions: email Tonya Shum.
It is time to order your child’s yearbook for the 2013-2014 school year. Production is well underway and this year’s book promises to be a special keepsake for your family.
