Welcome to the 2016-2017 school year! As a member of the Sundance Elementary community, we urge you to investigate how the Twin Trails Education Foundation continues to improve education at our school. We are financial partners with the Sundance PTA and the many wonderful programs that enrich our school. We help advance technology in the classroom, to prepare our kids for the future. The state budget just leaves our school funding with too many gaps, but with your help we can close those gaps and help our children to excel!

Hello Sundance Families!
The Twin Trails Education Foundation will hold its annual auction to benefit the students of Sundance Elementary. This year's event is a family affair with a "Sundance Film Festival" theme and will conveniently take place on the school campus. Popular movies like "Moana" and "The BFG" will be played for the kids while parents can enjoy an evening with their Sundance community bidding on various silent and live auction items including: Disneyland passes, season tickets to the Del Mar horse races, a reserved parking space at the school, front row seats for your child's performance, and more. 
The $10 adult admission price includes:
    - 1 free child
    - Pizza/Pasta Dinner for both
    - Movie admission for both
    - 1 free entry into the grand finale drawing for a Kindle Fire! (must be present to win)

Skip past the ticket line at the Auction!  Prepay via Paypal or Credit card online, and as a bonus, get an extra entry into the drawing!  The link to prepay will be on the confirmation screen upon completion of the registration form.

Tickets can be purchased (upon completion of the registration form here) for $10 (through March 31, 2017)
