1. Please contribute to the teacher gift by WEDNESDAY:
Easy and Generous Teacher Gift Giving at Exploris- Mug Free!
🎁 Are you planning to give a gift to your child’s teachers? Please contribute to the Exploris Winter Thanks ! Contributions must be received by WEDNESDAY, December 19. You can send in a check or give online. 🎁
This collection ensures that all fifty-five teachers and staff members receive the recognition they deserve! To participate, you can simply send in a check (or cash) to the PTO, or donate by credit card ONLINE. This will then be divided among the teachers and staff.If you would like to participate:
- Please send in cash or a check (made payable to Exploris PTO) or make your donation ONLINE.
- Place your donation in an envelope marked “Winter Thanks” or “Teacher Gift” with your name, your child(ren)’s name(s), and grade(s). It is important to label the envelope with “Winter Thanks” or “Teacher Gift” so that it is not confused with school care, spirit wear, or field trip payments.
- Give it to Mary Margaret or Carolee (either one is fine if you have children in both schools; it is not necessary to provide separate donations per child).
- If donating ONLINE, please include in the “Notes” at checkout, your name, your child(ren)’s names(s), and grade(s).
- Complete all donations by Wednesday, December 19th.
For additional information please read our EXPLORIS THANKS FAQ’S. If you have any questions, please let us know by emailing Brooke Somers (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Cheryl Rodgers (email@example.com).
2. Art By Me- orders coming home today!
Art by Me ordered products will be sent home on Monday, December 17 with students! (The orders were supposed to arrive at the school last week, but were delayed due to weather.)
**If you don’t want your order to go home with your child, please email Kristin ASAP: firstname.lastname@example.org **
3. Dine-In Fundraiser- Wednesday, December 19, MOD Pizza, 2071 West Millbrook
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 email@example.com
