- Thank you to everyone who could attend the meeting Monday night. We reviewed the itinerary and cost for the trip (see attached information). We also discussed the point system for fundraising - basically the more you do for an event, the more you share in the profits. If you do not participate in the fund raising event, you do not share in the profit. (see attached information) We encourage ALL families to participate in the fund raising; even if you or your child doesn't think he/she will go on the trip. If you can pay for the full amount of the trip, we do not require you to participate in the fund raising (attached payment schedule).
Merrick Carreiro and Jen Combra are in charge of the fireworks fundraiser on August 17th. Thank you, ladies! They will be in touch with more details. If you are willing to help them run this event, please contact them directly.
You and your child should collect sponsors for the Columbus Day Road Race. This is the biggest fund raiser we do and this is the way we get the most money. Sponsorships can be dropped off at the office Monday through Thursday from 9 am to 1 pm. The deadline is September 14th. You may also earn points by working the event on Saturday, October 6th and Sunday, October 7th. (Sponsorship forms are attached to this email). The more sponsors we get, the better for the whole class. Also, we sent home T-shirts with students & parents detailing which people/businesses have sponsored in the past. It may help to wear/bring the T-shirt with you as you solicit sponsors. Please ask your child to see the T-shirt!
We will also have a fund raiser on Thanksgiving morning (the Turkey Trot). Details will follow in the fall. If you are here on Thanksgiving Day, you can participate in this fund raising event.
If you have any other fund raising ideas or any questions about this information, please contact us. We look forward to a successful year of fund raising for this exciting trip!
