Teacher Gift Pool- last day to contribute!


Can you believe it? This is the last week of school at Exploris. As we finish up the year, please remember to say thank you to all of the amazing Exploris teachers and staff members. A great way to do this is to contribute to the teacher gift pool. We divide up all of the money so everyone gets a gift check to kick off the summer!

The deadline is extended until TUESDAY, JUNE 7, 6PM. Click here to contribute.

*Trouble with Square? We apologize to those of you who have tried to donate and had technical issues. After a lengthy tech support call this morning the site has been refreshed and is working properly.

TEACHER GIFTS Spring 2022 Deadline for contributions is 7pm June 7.  Click Here to Contribute!

Any dollar amount is appreciated and divided among the Exploris team. Our total goal is $10,000. As of Monday noon we have collected $5000.

Online donations are being collected via Square. Square accepts all major credit cards, Google Pay, and Cash App Pay. Thanks to everyone who has already contributed!

*Checks: If you prefer to avoid the 2.2% fees, please make checks payable to Exploris PTO and send to the front office in an envelope labeled “Exploris Teacher Gift ATTN: Front office FROM: your name”

If you have other questions, please email Alex Fioto, PTO treasurer at pto-treasurer@exploris.org

Donate Online by June 7, 6pm
