1. Art by Me- orders due FRIDAY, November 16!

IMG_0648Art by Me ordering information has been sent home with all Exploris students. A flyer was sent home last week with your child’s artwork pictured at the bottom. You may log on to Art by Me Artwork: http://artbyme.com and put in your child’s code (found on the top of the flyer) to order everything from a Tshirt to a phone cover featuring your child’s artwork. We can also take checks at school, made out to Exploris PTO (however, we really encourage you to use online checkout as much as possible!)

You have until November 16 to order, so please don’t forget! This is a great holiday gift and you will be helping raise money for our school as well.

The Exploris PTO is excited about this fundraiser and we hope you’ll place an order. This is a school wide fundraiser for the Exploris PTO including all grades K-8. The products purchased will arrive before Winter Break! The profits will enable the PTO to continue providing all of the great services they offer to our school and teachers.

Please visit our Art by Me Fundraising page for more information. 

If you have any questions, please email Kristin Corson at krash1065@yahoo.com.

2. Dine-In Fundraiser this Wednesday at MOD Pizza!


Dine-In Fundraisers
Thank you for everyone who has participated in dine-in fundraisers thus far!  Your participation is key to this effort!  Many restaurants require a minimum before they donate anything to us, so we really need as many people there as possible.  Allie would love to hear ideas for other dine-in fundraisers, so if you have favorite restaurants or contacts, or if you’re interested in helping coordinate, please reach out to allie.lindahl@gmail.com
Our next dine in fundraiser is THIS WEDNESDAY at MOD Pizza on Millbrook Rd.  Show this flier or tell the cashier you’re with Exploris and we’ll get 20% of sales back!
Upcoming Dine-In Fundraisers
We also have a new, ongoing Fundraiser that is super exciting!  All Papa Murphy’s Take ‘n’ Bake Pizza locations in Wake County are offering us 25% back on online orders.  All you have to do is add the Promo Code “Creative” when checking out at http://order.PapaMurphys.com.  There are no specific dates or times – anytime your family has a pizza night, Papa Murphy’s will give back to the PTO!

We hope to see you at MOD Pizza on November 14. Please RSVP on our facebook page, and share with your friends!:


3. New PTO Student/Parent Directory- online now!

The PTO is managing a new school directory for K-8 for those that opted in.  (Form was included in the back to school packet.) There is no schoolwide directory.
