THANK YOU FROM YOUR PTA!- The PTA would like to send a very warm Thank You to all of the Elitha Donner families and staff for their awesome support! It has been great seeing and meeting a lot of you on campus and at our recent fundraising events. Hopefully you had a fun time at the Ice Cream Social two weeks ago. We sure did! Our Donner Dinner this past Monday at Chipotle was a huge success, bringing in over $500 to support our school’s assemblies.
Another fundraising campaign we are participating in is the GiveWith.Target program. With each on-line vote, our school will receive $1. These funds can be used for much needed school supplies for our classrooms. Simply go to GiveWith.Target.com and submit your vote for Elitha Donner Elementary. To participate in this campaign you must have a Facebook account, and can vote multiple times. (See the attached flyer for more information)
We would also like to express our appreciation for your support at this week’s Book Fair. Our PTA extends a huge Thank You to everyone that has become a member of PTA and has purchased Spirit Wear. All funds raised benefit the school and the students. If you haven’t already joined the PTA, it’s not too late. We always welcome new members. Membership forms can be found in the school office or by clicking on this link http://blogs.egusd.net/donner/files/2011/01/PTA-membership-packet-2013-2014-23in22z.pdf . Thank you for your continued support!!!
EGUSD ATTENDANCE CAMPAIGN IS BACK – It’s a new school year– and that means it’s once again time to kick off the Attendance Campaign! If you come to school every day in September, you are eligible to win a free admission pass to Fairytale Town or free tokens from Chuck E. Cheese’s. And don’t forget about the Perfect Attendance Bike Giveaway! It’s back for an 8th amazing year.

So keep coming to school – and it could be you spending a day at Fairytale Town or Chuck E. Cheese’s – or riding off in style on your new bike!
