Each spring, Murch throws an auction to raise funds for the Home School Association (HSA). Donations are used to buy educational materials & technologies, provide scholarships to students, teacher grants, and fund field trips and experiential activities for students. These funds pay for resources not covered by the DCPS budget.
Buy your tickets now for the biggest event of the school year - The Murch Auction. Mark your calendars, book your sitters, and get your tickets now!
This year’s event will be a Masquerade Soiree, held on April 14, 2018 (7:30 pm) at the Washington Hebrew Congregation.
This event is made possible by the help of the Murch Community – that means you! Through volunteering & donations we are able to raise the funds needed to provide the level of education for your kids that we have grown to expect from Murch. In addition to helping raise money for your children’s school it’s also a fun night out with food, friends, and drink! What a great way to build our wonderful Murch Community. We hope to see you there.
Help Murch Kick Off a New and Exciting Era!
The long standing tradition of Paddles Up at the Murch Auction offers a unique opportunity for our community to support Murch in ways that would otherwise not be possible. We are about to embark upon an exciting new era as we prepare to transition to back to the newly renovated Murch Elementary. With all of the positive changes coming our way, there has never been a more important time to support Murch by raising our paddles.
Paddles Up is a live auction donation where the Murch community pledges donations to help support the school. This year’s donations will be used to support many new initiatives such as after school enrichment programs, theater arts performances in our new gymnasium, as well as field trips, musical instruments, and any other needs that may arise as we move and settle into our brand new home.
