What is NYOS Jag Fest?
Jag Fest is an annual fundraiser led by NYOS families and the PTA. There will be food, games, activities, and more for all ages to enjoy. The revenue from this fundraiser supports our PTA programs. Our goal is for every NYOS employee, student, and family to feel an integral part of this annual event. All families are encouraged to sign up to volunteer.

This year we will be assigning themes for our auction baskets to each grade grouping. Each grade loop will have 2 basket themes to donate to.

The instructions are below for how to contribute an item to these fun baskets! (Homeroom Parents not responsible for auction baskets in any way.)

The items noted with each theme are suggestions - feel free to elaborate and add your personal touch. In addition to purchasing an item, this is a great opportunity to make use of personal and professional contacts to gather donated items and gift cards to help create amazing baskets. Also, for your convenience, we have created an Auction Basket Amazon Wish List – purchase an item and have it shipped directly to the school!

Auction Basket Amazon Wish List: 

Collections will begin on Monday September 17th and end on Friday October 12th.

Collections bins will be available in the front lobbies of both campuses. If donating a gift card or cash, please give it to the front-desk staff for safekeeping. Or, use the Auction Basket Amazon Wish List and ship directly to the school!
