Thank you Kroger, Amazon shoppers!

Thanks to all our community members using their shopping to benefit Snow PTA!

We just got our first check from Kroger Rewards for $80.31.  It’s not a lot, but it couldn’t be easier – nothing else to sell or buy or bake or pop!  If you (or a friend or relative) have a Kroger Card, simply visit the Kroger Community Rewards website and sign up to support Snow Elementary.  (Use code NN416.)  Then every time you swipe your card at checkout, PTA will receive a portion of the proceeds.

Similarly, we will be receiving $18.88 from Amazon Smile for shopping our supporters did on Amazon.  For that program, visit Smile.Amazon.com and designate Edward S. Snow Elementary as your charity.  Then remember to start your online shopping at Smile.Amazon.com and we will get part of your proceeds to help the school.

Thanks again to all our supporters!

To fundraise or not to fundraise?

Our next Snow PTA meeting is Thursday at 6 p.m. in the library.  Among the questions to be decided – should we have a major spring fundraiser, as budgeted? If so what? Can we get by with littler events instead like extra popcorn days or bake sales?

We will also talk about officers – including the need to fill our empty vice president position for this year and to start thinking about officers for next year.  And it is time to gear up for picnic planning, which will require many hands if we are going to pull it off.

Much to think about.  We hope many of you will come and offer your input on Thursday!
