at The Acorn School
Purchase Event Tickets, Raffle Tickets, or make a Donation by clicking here! 

Dear Acorn Families and Friends,

You may know that The Acorn is a non-profit school, and we operate on a deficit every year.  As a result, we have one major fundraiser from which we hope to raise the majority of money to cover that deficit. Since last year's Fiesta FUNraiser was so successful, we decided to make it a family fun event again. This Fiesta themed event will have different family pass options, individual admission tickets, raffle tickets, an auction, and much more! 

Raffle tickets available at $5, $10, and $25. Great prizes at each level!  Purchase beforehand online by clicking here, in the office, or at the event. Drawing will be held the Monday following the event. You can stop by the office to pick up as many physical raffle tickets as you want, if you want to try to sell them to family members or friends at the office, etc. 
Food Booths with offerings from various area favorite restaurants! (included with your Family Pass admission)
Silent Auction located inside the Kindergarten wing during the event: this year our auction will also be online! All auction items will be available for bidding on the site. We will be featuring class projects and teacher outings, as well as dinners, overnights, favorite memorabilia, jewelry, photography packages, and lots more!
Wine Pull! For a $20 Adult ticket, you are able to use it at the wine pull, where you are almost guaranteed to take home a bottle of wine valued at $20 or more. In the past we have awarded bottles of wine valued over $50, $80, and even $100! 
Student Photo Wall! Families take home their child’s photo in exchange for an adult ticket.
Playground kid activities -Rocket launchers, spin art, hat making, face painting, book pull, toy walk, bouncy house, petting zoo, pony rides, etc.

If you or your company would be interested in underwriting any of the event amenities listed above, please download our Fundraiser Underwriting Form.

Contact The Acorn office for more details (210) 826-8804, or email 

All of our parents are busy gathering prizes for the event and if any of our future parents, alumni, and friends have access to prizes or donated gift certificates for the fundraiser, we would be thrilled if you would help us out. Please let us know!  Click here for a copy of our Donation Request Letter to share with businesses.

This Fundraiser is going to be tons of fun for the entire family and we’d love to have you join us. You are also welcome to come into the office to purchase raffle tickets, family passes, punch cards, or to make a donation by cash or check. 

Thanks for always being an active part of the Acorn family!

Raffle Tickets for sale!!!!

If you would like to pick up raffle tickets to sell to friends, families, and co-workers, please stop by the office. We will happily give you as many as you would like! Please come into the office as you sell your raffle tickets to turn them in! Make sure you have the person's name and phone number filled out, so we are able to get in touch with them on Monday following the Fundraiser in case they win a raffle prize!
