Fundraising” Fund Raisers @ Amelia Earhart Elementary

The PTA helps provide many services to the school. This includes field trips, Literacy Events, Science Fair, Red Ribbon Week, Teacher Appreciation Week, and much more. None of these activities would be possible without your support!

Little Caesars Cards: Each card has 10 punches for a free Crazy Combo with the purchase of a pizza. The cards are only $10, and $7 stays at our school. That is a 70% profit! These can be purchased at the front desk from our secretaries. Box Tops: The Box Tops for Education program is changing the way we can earn cash for our school! Over the summer, participating brands have begun to change their packaging from the traditional Box Tops clip to the new Box Tops label. Going forward, instead of clipping from packages and checking expiration dates, all Box Tops will be earned digitally by scanning your receipt. The Box Tops for Education team has worked hard to build a NEW-and-improved, user-friendly Box Tops mobile app, available now. The new app features state-of-the-art technology that allows you to scan your store receipt, find participating products and instantly add Box Tops to our school’s earnings online. If you still have traditional Box Tops clips at home, make sure to send them to school. We will still earn cash for all clipped Box Tops until they expire. Better yet, you can “double dip” during the packaging transition by clipping traditional Box Tops AND scanning your store receipt containing participating products.

Amazon Smiles:  AmazonSmile is a simple and automatic way for you to support your favorite charitable organization every time you shop, at no cost to you. When you shop at smile.amazon.com, you’ll find the exact same low prices, vast selection and convenient shopping experience as Amazon.com, with the added bonus that Amazon will donate a portion of the purchase price to your favorite charitable organization. You can choose from over one million organizations to support. To shop at AmazonSmile simply go to smile.amazon.com from the web browser on your computer or mobile device. You may also want to add a bookmark to smile.amazon.com to make it even easier to return and start your shopping at AmazonSmile.

On your first visit to AmazonSmile smile.amazon.com, you need to select a charitable organization to receive donations from eligible purchases before you begin shopping. We will remember your selection, and then every eligible purchase you make at smile.amazon.com will result in a donation. Amelia’s account is:

Recaudación de fondos en la primaria Amelia Earhart

El PTA ayuda a proporcionar muchos servicios a la escuela. Esto incluye excursiones, eventos de alfabetización, feria de ciencias, semana del listón rojo, semana de agradecimiento a los maestros y mucho más. ¡Ninguna de estas actividades sería posible sin su apoyo!

Tarjetas Little Caesars: cada tarjeta tiene 10 golpes para un Crazy Combo gratis con la compra de una pizza. Las tarjetas cuestan solo $ 10 y $ 7 se quedan en nuestra escuela. ¡Eso es una ganancia del 70%! Estas se pueden comprar en la oficina de la escuela con nuestras secretarias. Box Tops: ¡ El programa Box Tops for  Education está cambiando la forma en que podemos ganar dinero para nuestra escuela! Durante el verano, las marcas participantes han comenzado a cambiar su emblema del tradicional clip de Box Tops a la nueva etiqueta de Box Tops. En el futuro, en lugar de recortar los paquetes y verificar las fechas de vencimiento, todos los Box Tops se obtendrán digitalmente escaneando su recibo. El equipo de Box Tops for Education ha trabajado arduamente para crear una aplicación móvil de Box Tops NUEVA y mejorada, fácil de usar, disponible ahora. La nueva aplicación presenta tecnología de punta que le permite escanear el recibo de su tienda, encontrar productos participantes y agregar instantáneamente Box Tops a las ganancias de nuestra escuela en línea. Si todavía tiene clips tradicionales de Box Tops en casa, asegúrese de enviarlos a la escuela. Seguiremos ganando dinero en efectivo por todos los Box Tops recortados hasta que caduquen. Mejor aún, puede “presentar dos veces” durante la transición del empaque recortando Box Tops tradicionales Y escaneando el recibo de la tienda que contiene los productos participantes.

Amazon Smiles:  AmazonSmile es una forma simple y automática de apoyar a su organización caritativa favorita cada vez que compra, sin costo alguno para usted. Cuando compre ensmile.amazon.com, encontrará exactamente los mismos precios bajos, una amplia selección y una experiencia de compra conveniente como Amazon.com, con la ventaja adicional de que Amazon donará una parte del precio de compra a su organización benéfica favorita . Puede elegir entre más de un millón de organizaciones para apoyar. Para comprar en AmazonSmile simplemente vaya a smile.amazon.com desde el navegador web en su computadora o dispositivo móvil. También es posible que desee agregar un marcador a smile.amazon.com para que sea aún más fácil regresar y comenzar a comprar en AmazonSmile. En su primera visita a AmazonSmilesmile.amazon.com, debe seleccionar una organización benéfica para recibir donaciones de compras elegibles antes de comenzar a comprar. Recordaremos su selección, y luego cada compra elegible que realice en smile.amazon.com dará como resultado una donación. La cuenta de Amelia es:

Hi PTA Members,

Welcome back to Amelia Earhart for the 2019-2020 school year. And THANK YOU for joining our PTA and supporting us. We as a presidency appreciate you.

A couple items of business…. LOTS to cover.

An introduction to our presidency this year: Kari Wilkins (President) Amy Schofield (Secretary) Emily Llamas (Treasurer) Lianne Cardon (President Elect) Our next PTA Meeting is September 12th beginning at 10am. School Community Council will directly follow if you would like to join that as well. Consider joining School Community Council. Ask Mr. McCarty for more information. Bike to School. We did not get involved with this last year due to safety of all of our students biking to school.  I have chosen not to participate again. If there is someone who would like to voice an opinion otherwise and would like to head this up, let me know. Amelia is hiring. Here is the link if you are interested, and there is also an attachment to see the details. https://provo.applicantportal.com/job-detail-view.php?jid=3880 The district would like a representative from each school to support the bond. If you are in favor of the bond and would like to represent our school, please let me know. Attached is a picture of the flyer with information about the bond. Vision Screening is on September 10th. We need volunteers to help our school nurse Honey Hanson.  Its fairly quick and easy. You can also bring your littles if they have something to keep them busy. Look for a sign up from Sign Up Genius. Amazon Smiles: Just a Reminder to use Amazon Smiles. Its so easy to make extra money for our school without doing anything different. Our school has made over $70 dollars, just by signing into Amazon Smiles rather than Amazon. Same prices, same stuff, just we get a tiny percent. Here’s how to shop AmazonSmile:

1. Visit smile.amazon.com

2. Sign in with your Amazon.com credentials

3. Choose a charitable organization to receive donations, or search for the charity of your choice

4. Select your charity

4. Start shopping!

5. Add a bookmark for smile.amazon.com to make it even easier to return and start your shopping at AmazonSmile And LAST… Box Tops Changes:  Look at all the attachments for the details. But I decided to do the app and try it out before I sent this out to everyone. Just scanning my receipts from this summer I made $4.70. I am not super excited about scanning my receipts, it seems a little weird. But this will be WAY easier on all of us. Box Tops take a lot of hours cutting, prepping, preparing and mailing. Plus we always have to take into consideration the cost of shipping. The app is pretty straight forward and even gives you directions when you first log in. This year we will be collecting both the cut box tops and the scanned. Box Tops will actually count both this year, so we get double the amount if everyone scans and cuts. I included some numbers that we made from box tops last year and lifetime earnings for the school. Clearly they add up. First collection of the year will probably be mid October. So make sure to send them in.  The only change will be, the scanned can not be distributed to a specific teacher. In the past (And this last year) each teachers collected box tops go directly to their class. I will be meeting with the faculty on September 3rd to discuss how it will be divided in the future.
