• Price: $75/ticket

The ticket price includes appetizers, desserts, and adult beverages, DJ Karaoke, and multiple ways to raise money for Field including a silent auction, raffles, and buy-in parties -- all for $75 a ticket. We will be raising money for Gaga ball pit flooring which will be installed over the summer, as well as flexible seating for classrooms and fun (safe) games for the kids to use at recess. Also, don’t forget to submit your buy-in party ideas and donations ASAP. See below for details:

Buy-In Party. Love planning or hosting parties? Then, we need YOUR help to host a buy-in party.  Buy-in parties are an incredibly fun way to raise money for Field Elementary School!  

Here’s how it works: Field parents host a party with a fun theme and charge guests an admission fee to attend. The party is paid for by the hosts and all proceeds from the admission fee will go to the Field PTA. Field families will have the opportunity to sign up to attend a buy-in party at Field Follies on April 13th at 7:00 PM.

Parties can be hosted anytime at the hosts’ home or at any venue for any number of guests at any admission fee…it’s all up to the hosts.  And, the theme could be something as easy as a wine night for the ladies, a poker night for the guys, or an end-of-year pool party for the kiddos. Anything goes! See the attached document for more information on how it works.

If you’d like to host a party please provide the following information in an email to Melanie Canale at by Friday, March 22nd:
• Subject line: Request to Host Buy-In Party
• Theme
• Names of host(s)
• # of attendees
• Proposed admission fee

Silent Auction Donations. We are looking for items to sell for the silent auction. Examples include:
• Travel (airline miles, hotel, or timeshare stays)
• Entertainment (tickets to music/sports events, shows, theme parks)
• Services (babysitting, photo shoots, tutoring, landscaping, home repair, snow removal, holiday light installation


Please contact Sue Lisowski at if you have anything you'd like to donate.

Your Help is Needed and Appreciated – Mrs. Thomas would like to share a few reminders about drop off and pick up. "As you have observed it is very busy on Emroy. I understand this can be frustrating and I am asking for your help and support in making arrival and dismissal run as smoothly as possible. Please adhere to the following:

  • Pull all the way forward, as far as you can. 
  • Do not exit your car. We cannot have cars parked in front blocking the drop-off and pick-up area.
  • Do not stay parked in the drop-off area while your child is walking in the building. Traffic needs to continue moving. 
  • Do not enter the parking lot and never park in front of the parking lot drivewayto wait for students. 
  • Load children as quickly as possible and pull out to allow the next family to pick up their child."
