2017 Race for Education
Dear Ross families,
The Race for Education fundraiser was a success! We raised $9,758.91. Thank you to all the families who sent in labels, donated stamps and volunteered. We received $248 and 15 books of stamps from the postage stamp request. This helped immensely to offset the cost of postage when mailing out the mailers. There was over 2,000 mailers that went out. We also have a PayPal button on the PTO website as a way to donate.
“Race” day was great! The kids had a wonderful time running/walking laps and dancing to music. All prizes have been given out to the children and classes. We gave treasure box prizes, extra recess and chewing gum cards, movie and popcorn parties, a pizza party, an ice cream party with Mrs. Bednarek and gift cards. These were given as an incentive for bringing in labels. The mailing labels are a key part of our fundraiser, without these this would not have been possible.
We are hoping to do this fundraiser every fall. Please remember that the support from our Ross families in sending in their mailing labels is what makes this fundraiser successful. The response from family and friends was fantastic! If you would like to see who sponsored your child, their folder will be available at our PTO meeting. Most of the mailers sent out were returned with generous donations in support of our school. Please be sure to thank friends and family that donated to our fundraiser, this would not have been possible without their support, or yours!!
