It’s time for our main fundraiser of the year! This week, each child was sent home with a large envelope from Charleston Fundraiser Group and a Run for Fund collection sheet. We ask our KST families to consider supporting one (or both) of these efforts to raise money for our events, activities and materials that are purchases throughout the year. It is with these funds that they PTN was able to purchase new books for every classroom, bring the Wheel of Wisdom assembly each year to every student, new iPads and Chromebooks, playground equipment, parking and volunteer admissions to field trips, classroom items and supplies needed by teachers, and so much more.
Run for Fund takes place on Friday, September 22nd. Every student will participate during the Specials/Exploratory times during the day. Parents may run with their child, but must sign in at the office before joining the class outside. The collection sheet is for direct donations from those who may want to support KST PTN’s efforts, but do not wish to purchase items. We are in need of parents to supervise the route around the building, if you are available to do this (unless you are running with your child) please use the Sign Up Genius HERE.
Charleston Fall Fundraiser is a catalog item sale; the catalogs are for Gift Wrap items as well as Home & Kitchen items. The gift wrap is high-quality and has unique patterns. The Home & Kitchen items are similar to Pampered Chef, 31 Bags, and make great gifts! Also available in these catalogs are candy/chocolates, magazines and personalized items for holiday and daily use. Students who sell items from these catalogs online or in person are eligible to earn prize incentives daily, and larger prizes from the number of items they sell. Prize posters with details are included in the packet sent home. Also, every other day of the sale a coupon is drawn from those who have already sold items and turned in the coupons from the packet. This winner will receive one of the Pig Racer in our display cabinet! It is is battery operated pig that walks and oinks–super cute! At the end of the sale, our 5 Pig Racer Winners will race their pigs in the Bacon 500! The winning pig earns a special, fun prize for their whole class!
The Fundraiser is going on NOW and all orders and donations should be returned to school by Monday, September 18th please. Online orders are delivered to your customer directly from Charleston. In person orders will be sent to school and will be available for pick up usually during Parent Teacher Conferences while you are already in the building. Thank you for considering support of this fundraiser!
