Haunted School is
Friday, October 27th, 6:30-8:30 PM!

This is a fun-filled night of games, stories, treats, and thrills.  Over the years it has become a wonderful tradition in our community.  Proceeds from this event go directly to support our PTA.

We need many volunteers to create this haunted extravaganza!  As with any event of this size, the old adage “the more, the merrier” becomes an understatement.  We are always looking for some new and creative room-leaders and helpers.

We are also looking for the following donations:
–Candy–LOTS of it!  This is a big one; we can’t have too much!
–Decorations and large blow-up displays
–Storage totes
–Spider webbing (white and glow)
–Carving kits
There is a bin outside the school office to drop off items.

Tickets were sent home several weeks ago for the Lindbergh PTA Raffle Fundraiser!

Our goal is to require your support and participation for only ONE PTA-sponsored fundraiser this year.  We are asking each family to sell at least 50 tickets at $2 each.  We will award three cash prizes:  (1) $500 prize and (2) $250 prizes.  Prize amounts may vary if we are unable to reach the fundraising goal.  What will the money be used for?  All Lindbergh fundraising goes right back to our school, teachers, and students–it pays for activities like Haunted School, Bingo for Books, Holiday Boutique, and Fun Fair.

Important dates:
–November 2nd:  All sold ticket stubs and money collected along with any unsold tickets are due back to Lindbergh no later than this date.  It is a legal requirement of the State of Michigan Lottery Association that we collect all tickets for this fundraiser, regardless of whether they’ve been sold.

–November 11th:  Raffle drawing held at the Holiday Boutique at 4 PM; winner does not need to be present to win

We can only accept cash or checks maybe payable to “Lindbergh PTA.”

If you choose not to sell tickets, you may choose to purchase them for $100.  If you are able to sell more than 50 tickets, please contact Vanessa Mkrtumian for more (vmkrtumian@gmail.com).

Thank you for your support!
