Elkridge Elementary yard sale will benefit PTA [Elkridge]

Elkridge Elementary School is hosting a yard sale on Oct. 4, from 8 a.m to noon, and you are invited to participate as a seller or a buyer.The yard sale directly benefits the PTA and those hoping to make some money on their unused/unwanted items.

Anyone can purchase two parking spots in the school's annex lot (the parking lot closest to Montgomery Road) for $15 to use to sell their items. If people have a lot to sell, they can purchase four spots for $30. If they have only a small amount to sell, spots can be shared among neighbors or friends.


The $15 can be paid in cash or via check made out to EES PTA and sent to the school or dropped off in the front office in an envelope marked EES PTA. Whatever money people make off of their items is theirs to keep.

Terri Marcus is the contact person for questions and can be reached at eespta@hotmail.com.

The PTA uses all the money it receives to benefit the students and teachers of Elkridge Elementary. The PTA pays for all the cultural art assemblies at the school, helps offset teachers' classroom expenses and helps support other programs such as Just for Dads, Family Fun Nights, PBIS, 5th grade programs and Teacher Appreciation Week.
