Fundraising Success!

We've received two fundraising checks this week. The first was from Tyson's Project A+. Each Project A+ label on their products earns us $.24 and our last submission earned us $32. Every little bit helps! The second check was from Buffalo Wild Wings for the promotion that just wrapped up on December 31. We earned $830 from visits to the restaurant by Samuelson families!

Thanks to everyone who supported Samuelson PTO by participating in these activities!

At our next meeting on February 10 we will be voting on a proposal from school staff for the purchase of library books. Without your support of these, and other fundraising activities, we wouldn't be able to provide the school with resources for our students. We hope to see you at the meeting. And keep clipping those labels!

A BUSY 7 Weeks!

The next 7 weeks are very busy for the PTO! There are over 100 opportunities for volunteers to help out with these activities. More information and sign-up sheets will be coming soon, but we wanted to let you know dates so you can check your schedules to see how you can help. These activities can't happen without a lot of support from our Samuelson Families!

* Scholastic Book Fair Wednesday, Feb 18 and 25 during conferences. Help is needed from 1:30-830 pm each day.
* Staff Appreciation Dinner Wednesday, Feb 25. We'll need donations for the meal and help setting up and cleaning up. Any yummy suggestions for the meal? We plan on feeding 50 staff that day.
* Family Fun Night is Friday, March 6. All proceeds this year will be used to buy more books for our school library. We need about 70 volunteers for that night, and we will be asking for donations of some supplies. Watch those backpacks! You'll also be able to sign-up on-line.
* We will be assembling Kids of Character Baskets the week before Fun Night and need help doing so. Not sure what these are? Watch those backpacks for a note in early February. And more information here!

We'll post links to Sign-Up Genius forms here for these opportunities soon. Watch this space! smile emoticon
