Letter from the VP of Volunteering
I hope you are having a wonderful fall season!
We’ve had a great number of people volunteering for the classrooms and the teachers and the board truly appreciate it. I have heard so many great stories already from other parents on how much they enjoyed their time volunteering. THANK YOU!
Also a big thank you to those families who were BEE’ing so kind and have donated to the Co-Op from our new Bee Hive!
Please let me know if you are having any difficulty with our online volunteer scheduling!
Letter from the VP of Fundraising
Hello Co-Op Families,
First and foremost, I need to say thank you to all of you who have participated in our Yankee Candle fundraiser! As of right now, we have raised $1,869.60 with Yankee Candle. Remember that the online fundraising remains open through the end of the calendar year, so if you were still getting into the rhythm of the school year and didn’t get around to participating, or if you want to put a reminder out there later in the fall for your friends who do their holiday shopping last-minute, please feel free to continue! If you need a reminder of the information, please don’t hesitate to ask.
The first of our dining night fundraisers is just around the corner on Monday, October 20th. This month is at Papa Gino’s on 110 in Chelmsford. These fundraisers are location specific, so it won’t work at other Papa Gino’s restaurants. Simply bring the flyer with you for the school to receive 20% of your total. Please distribute the flyers to anyone in the area who may use them.
Next month we have a shopping fundraiser rather than dining. Westford Toy Shop is running a week of fundraising November 9-15. This event is extra-special because it benefits both you and the school—you will receive a 10% discount on your purchases, and the school will receive 10% of your total! This one is also great because you don’t need to remember to bring a flyer with you. Simply mention the Co-Op at checkout, and ask your friends and family to do the same.
Also, next Friday, October 24, is our Family Fun Night. We will have pizza, goodies, and popcorn while enjoying face painting, activities, and a showing of The LEGO Movie! The fun starts at 5:00 p.m. and the movie will begin at 6:00 p.m. Please use the online signup form to RSVP so that we can make sure to have enough food and drinks, and be sure to indicate if you will be willing to bring a dessert to share (keeping our nut-free policy in mind). Huge thanks go out to Stacey Robinson for taking the lead on this event!
Thanks so much for your support of the Co-Op!
