Welcome to a new school year at Benjamin! As parents you are part of the Benjamin PTO and we look to all of you for your active participation.
The purpose of an Unraiser is to limit the number of fundraisers our families are asked to particiapte in. All you have to do is fill out the form and write a check. It's a win-win for everyone! Thank you for your support! If you have questions please contact Barbara Johnson at firstname.lastname@example.org
Do you shop online? Do your kids play online? If you answered yes to either of those questions then you need to check out the Box Tops website at http://www.boxtopsforeducation.com/. This site has great ways to earn extra cash for our school. Once you have set up a log-in you can shop the marketplace stores such as Gap, Justice, Nook, and many more. Each purchase earns eBoxTops which translates into cash for our school. Your kids can, with your permission, link to game sites to earn boxtops. The website also has money saving coupons and chances every day to win bonus box tops for our shool. Older students can help
with meal planning with the Box Top recipe area. We appreciate every box top clipped and sent in with your students - and we hope you enjoy this additional great way to earn money for our school!
Any questions, please contact Laura Avery at email@example.com
Labels for Education
The Benjamin PTO is excited to bring you a new program to help earn merchandise for our school. Our school will now be participating in the Labels for Education® program. Through the program, we can collect UPCs and beverage caps from participating products to earn points that can be redeemed for FREE educational merchandise! If you have any questions regarding label collecting please contact Barbara Johnson at firstname.lastname@example.org
Benjamin Spirit Wear is a great way to recognize our school with pride. We wear them to special events and dedicate every Wednesday for spirit days. There will be three opportunities each year to place orders for clothing. Let's be proud of our school while supporting our PTO efforts here at Benjamin. Go Bears!! For more information or questions please contact Barb Macke at email@example.com
Good Neighbor Grant
Did you know that any State Farm employee who volunteers 40 hours in one year for Benjamin can raise $500.00 for our school? The employee does not have to be a Benjamin parent. The hours can be spent doing a variety of tasks, including but not limited to, classroom help, PTO meeting attendance, PTO phone call reminders, office help, clerical work, and bulletin boards. Work can even be completed at home many times. If you work at State Farm or know someone who does who would like to help, please contact Mrs. Bennington at firstname.lastname@example.org
. We hope to hear from you! Thank you to those of you who are already participating in this helpful program!
