Box Tops Are Due Friday, October 20th

Clipping Box Tops is an easy way to help earn cash for our PTA. Each one is worth 10¢! Just look for the pink Box Tops on hundreds of products. All you have to do is clip them and send them to school in a bag or envelope.  Make sure to write your grade and teacher on the envelope.

It’s contest time!  The top 3 classes will earn a popcorn party and the teacher will receive a reimbursement up to $15 for media, supplies or recess equipment for their classroom!  Last spring, Ms. Boyee used her reimbursement to buy duck eggs for her students to hatch!  Turn in your Box Tops by October 20 to be counted in the Fall contest.

For more information on Box Tops, including a list of participating products, go to BTFE.com. Be sure to sign up as a member (it’s free!) so you can check out our school’s earnings details and get access to coupons and bonus offers.

Boosterthon Update, Two Days Left!

PTA wants to say a huge THANK YOU to everyone who has logged into FunRun.com to create an account.  And an extra special thank you to everyone who has shared their student star video by email, text or Facebook.  We’ve just crossed the $10,000 mark and we are more than halfway to our goal!

If you haven’t created an account yet, please do.  Your student will receive a free prize just for creating the account.  Visit FunRun.com and use access code 276-817.  You can add a picture to your student’s profile and it will generate a fun video for you to share with family and friends.  While you’re there, check out the awesome character videos.  They are a great launching point to learn more about your student’s day.

Some people have asked if they can send cash or check.  The answer is YES.  If you send cash or check, your student will still receive credit and any applicable prizes for the donation.  Send donations in an envelope marked Boosterthon with your student’s name and teacher.  Make checks out to Baker ES PTA.

We have two more days to reach our goal.  Together we can do so much and you’re invited to help us celebrate.  Sign up here to cheer on our children and hand out water to keep them hydrated on Friday, October 13th.  The weather is supposed to be perfect.  We hope to see you there!

*PTA uses the funds from Boosterthon to pay for programs like Reflections, Terrific Kids Breakfasts, Science Fair Awards, Exceptional Children’s Week and 5th Grade Graduation.  PTA also uses funds to host family events and provide support for school requests. 

PTA is powered by volunteers like you.  Our goal is to make every child’s potential a reality – by engaging and empowering families and communities to advocate for ALL children.  If you would like to be more involved with PTA, you can download a membership form here.    Thank you for everything you do!

Our students are having a great time learning about character from the Boosterthon team.  This week they learned about Focus and Self Awareness.  You can view the lessons by visiting FunRun.com, entering code 276-817, and clicking Character Videos on your student’s dashboard.

The fun will continue next week and end with a Fun Run on Friday, October 13th.  We need a few volunteers from each grade level to cheer on our students and help keep them hydrated.  Click here to volunteer.

A Message from Boosterthon, Day One

Parents,
PTA’s Booster Program kicked off today with an exciting pep rally, and we are thrilled about this year’s program! Our Fun Run includes EVERY student in a fun, fitness event while helping your school raise much-needed funds.  Our goal is to raise $18,000, and we need YOUR help!

Here’s how you can support Baker Elementary:

  • Register your student on funrun.com using this code: 276-817 Once you do, your student will receive a FREE GIFT just for being registered. Then, use funrun.com to log pledges for your child.
  • Reach out to sponsors. Every student’s goal is to connect with 10 sponsors. And with funrun.com’s smart sharing features, reaching out to sponsors is easier than ever. The easiest way to get pledges is to simply click the Facebook share button on your student’s pledge page. Plus, with a few clicks you can create a custom Student Star video to share on social media. You can also use the Easy Emailer to connect with friends and family. As you gather pledges, be sure to record each sponsor’s e-mail address so they have the opportunity to easily pay for your student’s pledge online via credit card.
  • Ask your child about the Castle Quest Character Lesson of the day! This year’s character program is Castle Quest, a castle theme all about bravery. On their quest to regain Bravemore Castle, students will learn the “SIX VIRTUES of a TRUE HERO” from a cast of colorful characters. Join along by watching the fun character videos with your child on funrun.com.
  • Come to the Fun Run on Friday, October 13th! All students are included in the Fun Run, regardless of financial participation. Remember, students will be running 30-35 laps, and we would love for you to come out and cheer!

Thank you for supporting your school. We hope to see you next week at the Fun Run!
