GIFT WRAP DRIVE - Oct. 20 - Nov. 4
Our annual Gift Wrap Drive kicks off today! There are so many choices (besides gift wrap!) in the catalogs including, nuts and candies, candles, jewelry, ornaments, and more! The drive ends November 4 and is budgeted to raise $15,000 (roughly a quarter of our annual fundraising goal) to keep us on track to fund school programs for another year. Catalogs/order forms went home last week. Extra packets are available at the front office.
We need volunteers on the morning of November 4 to help count the orders. If you can help, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
HALLOWEEN AND SPIRIT DAY
Talk about Halloween Spirit! These two things are happening on October 31. Kindergarteners can wear costumes. All other students should wear red for "Wear Red Day" in honor of Red Ribbon Week. And it just so happens, our Discovery t-shirts are red this year! Perfect! Red Ribbon Week is an awareness program observed nationwide that's dedicated to the early prevention of alcohol, tobacco and drugs.
DISCOVERY CAPS AND BAGS ARE ON SALE
We'll be selling Discovery baseball caps ($15) and draw string bags ($10) at the next Flag Salute on October 24. And of course, we'll be selling t-shirts. These are perfect to wear on Discovery Spirit Days, which are twice a month at Flag Salute. We would love to see every parent and student wearing these t-shirts on Spirit Days! Ordering is so easy - everything is in stock and ready to be delivered to your child in his/her classroom! Just fill out an order form and submit to your teacher or office - no waiting! Discovery Spirit Wear is available in youth and adult sizes! $12 for youth, $15 for adult size.
