11/11/16 Friday Notes
With respect, honor and gratitude… Veterans, thank you for your service.
The PTSA is holding our annual evergreen fundraiser. These items smell wonderful, are really well made and last quite a while! You can order up until 11/17 (for delivery to the school around Dec 5). Orders can be placed on our website, or you can email Tami Lawson your order and deliver a check directly to the school by 11/17. There are also a few direct ship options if your child’s out of town family members would like to support us too… or if you would like to send them a lovely season-celebrating gift!
Help us get a 3-D Printer!!
We have launched a second Donors Choose campaign. Donors Choose works just like KickStarter or GoFundMe, but they are specific to meeting the needs of schools and classrooms. Ms. Norris is fundraising for a 3-D printer. This piece of equipment can give our students an opportunity to utilize team-work and problem-solving skills. Students will have an opportunity to propose, develop and perfect possible solutions developed around specific projects. To support this project, please visit: https://www.donorschoose.org/project/stem-3-d-printing/2316896 Please share this link with your friends and family, too. Anyone can support the project from anywhere!
We are in need of a fundraising chair person or chairpersons! The Fundraising Chair oversees the fundraising activities of the PTSA. A lot can even be done at home since most PTSA fundraising is done through events. This position may research new opportunities for fundraising and may help pursue grants. It can be divided up into specific efforts. For example, one person can be working on grants, another person can be managing the silent auction donations, another person could be promoting the alternative fundraiser, another person can be organizing the reusable bag fundraiser. Working a fundraising role can help build or refine marketing and organizational skills that are applicable to many different professional roles. If you are interested, please contact Jody Dickson, firstname.lastname@example.org.
