If you are looking for a little extra time to get errands done, we have availability for Full Day on an ad hoc basis! Tuesdays and Thursdays we have a couple of spaces open, but on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, we have lots of availability. Please let me know if you would like to add your child for the day.
The cost is $40 and pick up is at 4 p.m. You provide a peanut-free lunch, and sheets and blankets and we do the rest. Please remember that you must confirm with me before leaving your son or daughter.
Letter from the VP of Fundraising
Happy New Year, Co-Op Families!
Thanks so much for your support in 2014, and I’m looking forward to a strong 2015 to get us to our fundraising goal of $7,500! We have two big events coming up in the next couple of months—the Chili Cook-off and the Basket Auction/Concert—so we should be hitting the goal in no time!
Our strong finish to last year was thanks mostly to your shopping and volunteering. We had a strong December with Amazon, raising just short of $100 in that month alone. Your shopping at the Westford Toy Shop brought in $22, and we had $34 from the dining out night at Applebee’s. The Yankee Candle online sales were open through the end of the calendar year, and thanks to at least one last minute order (I fell asleep on the couch on New Year’s Eve and woke up at 11:45, then placed a panicked order literally at the last minute!), our final total from that fundraiser climbed to $2,048.80. Finally, we had our Scholastic Book Fair and sold $892.84 in books, giving us $446.43 in Scholastic credit to spend for the school.
Many thanks go out to those who helped man the Book Fair: Risa DiVincenzo, Kristi Grout, Kristen McDonald, Holly Redding Cooper, Kathy Hannon, Maeghan Hughes, Nilanjan Dasgupta, Katie Gregory, and anyone else who may have lent a hand (this is everyone who was signed up online).
It seems like a lifetime ago that I published the full calendar of fundraisers for the year, so I’d like to give you all a gentle reminder of upcoming important dates.
|1/18:||Bertucci’s Dining Night|
|2/23:||The 99 Dining Night|
|3/18||Papa Gino’s Dining Night|
|3/28:||Stacey Peasley Concert and Basket Raffle|
|4/3–4/14:||Square One Art|
|4/14:||Chili’s Dining Night|
|5/14:||Panera Dining Night|
Two of these events will require some volunteers to run smoothly—the Chili Cook-off and the Concert/Basket Raffle. The most immediate need is lining up our chefs for the Chili Cook-off. If you would like to show off your prowess in the kitchen, please email me at email@example.com. Later this month, we will need volunteers to visit a couple of local businesses each to drop off letters requesting donations for the Basket Raffle. As the event approaches, we will ask for people to help manage the raffle on that day. Watch for Sign-Up Genius forms for both of those opportunities. Please contact me directly if you have something that you would like to donate yourself.
Thanks so much for your continued support,
VP of Fundraising
