It’s been a year of physical distancing, remote learning and working from home, lockdowns, quarantines, and travel restrictions. If you could go anywhere right now, where would you go? What’s your dream?

Is is frozen piña coladas and scuba diving the reefs of Saba? Sailing the Med? Is it a museum tour in London or romance, rose, and baguettes in Paris? Maybe your family is headed to Whistler for a week on the slopes? Have you always wanted to visit the markets of Marrakech? Spice Bazaar in Istanbul? Street food tour by moped on the streets of Shanghai. Cross country RV trip to see the giant redwoods of Yosemite? Maybe you’re craving a deep dish Chicago pie! Hug a baby elephant in Kenya? No dream is too big!

Whatever your dream, the LES 2021 Auction Committee will make it happen.

Check out the Classroom Treasures video below to get a sneak peek at what you can bid on!
