Save the Date – PICTURE DAY is coming up on September 8th!
Box Tops: School supplies are pouring in and so are the BoxTops! Teachers, parents and students have been checking supply boxes for those beautiful tops. Some have even been rescued from the trash by some sharp eyed students! Thank you and keep it up! Our first prize raffle drawing will be on Thursday, September 25th. For every ten box Tops that your family submits, you will receive an entry into the raffle. So go and clean out that stash of Box Tops that you have held onto all summer. It is time for us to put them to good use for our school! Thank you for your help!
Market Day: You can help raise funds for our school while buying food that your family will enjoy every day. Market Day requires no door-to-door selling and supports our school every month. This means you can participate any time during the school year, as little or as often as you like!
Every purchase you make will earn 10-20% profit for our PTA, and every product is backed by a 100% satisfaction guarantee – so you can trust the quality and value of Market Day’s grocery items.
It’s easy to participate. Simply order online at www.marketday.com or return the Order Guide to the ‘Market Day’ basket in the school’s front office by the due date each month. You will soon receive the September Order Guide through backpack mail.
The Market Day pick up will take place on a specified date each month in the Ivy Hill Commons. The order due date and pick up date, as well as Market Day promotions for each month will be posted in the weekly ‘Friday Packet’, so watch for this information each week. Market day pick up for September will be on Sept. 19th. For more information please contact Kelly Nix (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Jennifer Sadowski (Jenjen57@aol.com)
