The Miner PTO would like to express our gratitude to the parents, staff, and community members who made our Third Annual Community Yard Sale such a success! Every year the sale keeps getting bigger, and this year we received more donations and had more visitors than ever! We truly appreciate the support that the surrounding community gives to Miner
The sale raised over $2,000 for the PTO’s general fund, which is used in myriad ways to further the PTO’s mission to “enhance and support the educational experience at Miner, to develop a closer connection between school and home by encouraging family and teacher involvement, and to improve the environment at Miner.”
After the sale, we hauled the collection of e-waste and hazardous waste up to DPW’s Fort Totten Transfer Station, and donated the unsold clothing, toys, books, games, and household items to Goodwill.
We would especially like to thank Holly Harper, a Miner parent alum, who headed up this effort. She was joined by a small army of parent volunteers, including David & Amy Treat, Julie & John Muir, Derek Herr & Beth Craft, Katy Thomas, Lolly Axley & Marc Borbelly, Terri Rupar, CarolAnne Otto, Sarah & Mike Bell, Sara Saxton, Sarah Sayko, and Emily & Ryan Cahill. Several Miner staff members went above and beyond the call of duty to help us get ready for the sale. The PTO is greatly appreciative of the assistance provided by Dr. King, Ms. Bonilla, and Mr. Moore. We couldn’t have done this without each of you!
