When, where & what's the theme of this year's auction?

MOT Charter School’s Annual Auction will be held at the High School campus on Saturday, May 5th from 6:00-10:00pm.

The theme is Mustang Derby Night so get ready for an adult-only night that includes a southern BBQ influenced dinner, music, an escape room featured by Axxiom, a corn hole tournament and ‘horseshoe’ toss.  Adults will have a chance to hit the dance floor, squeeze a few friends in the photo booth, bid on some amazing live and silent auction items, catch up with old friends and make some new ones... all while supporting our school and our students!  Bring friends, family, and neighbors or come and get to know other MOT Charter parents.

We need families to contribute items to our grade level baskets for the silent auction. The grade with the highest bid amount gets a pizza party. Parents can donate items for grade level baskets or gift cards by sending the items into the office with their name and grade level.
