Box Tops Challenge!…
The Roosevelt/Adelante BoxTops Challenge has begun! Start sending in those BoxTops between 9/29 and 10/30. Principal Girardi has challenged Adelante’s principal to a BoxTops contest. Each BoxTop earns 10¢ for our school, so sending them in will not only help to win the challenge, but we can earn money for our school! The school that has collected the most BoxTops for the month will be declared the winner and the principal of the losing school will have to wear the other school’s spirit wear for a day. Let’s make sure that Adelante’s principal has to show some Roosevelt Raccoon pride by collecting and turning in those BoxTops in October!
World’s Finest Chocolate…
This is the last week for the World’s Finest Chocolate Fundraiser! Friday, October 3 is the last day to take chocolate boxes from the school office. Please note: Once you sign out a box of chocolate, you are responsible for the full cost of the box. Partially sold boxes cannot be returned to the office! If you are having trouble selling your entire box, PLEASE come by the school office – there may be other families that are willing to purchase some of your chocolate to sell and you can be matched up with those families. Selling tips: Do not send your child to sell door to door without an adult. If selling in front of Lucky’s, Safeway, banks, etc. it really helps to make a sign indicating that this is a Roosevelt school fundraiser and your child can wear a school logo shirt to help buyers see that it is for our school. (Check with store managers, some stores will allow you to reserve time in front of the store for selling.) Each candy bar sells for $1 and this year there are a total of 60 bars in each box. Students selling 7 cases of chocolate (10 cases for families of 2 or more) will win a limo ride to In-N-Out for lunch! Please return all chocolate sale money by Monday, October 6.
Our Next Big Event…
Is Spooktacular Bingo on October 24! 6th grade parents are being asked to help with this event. Please contact Aurora Gallardo at email@example.com or Valerie Romero at (650)346-2445.
Last chance to win an iPad Mini!…
Are you in…to WIN? The drawing for the iPad Mini and other wonderful prizes will be held on October 30. If you’ve turned in your $130 pledge to the PTA, but haven’t turned in your raffle ticket, please do so before October 30. If you are making monthly payments and you pay your $130 pledged amount by the 30th, you will receive a raffle ticket for a chance to win one of the raffle prizes. Checks can be made out to Roosevelt PTA or you can pay by credit card in the school office. Will you be one of the lucky winners?
