TinyOwl Fundraiser - Orders Due 9/25

As you have seen from the flier sent home by PTA President Stacey Weigler last week, the PTA will not be running a traditional catalog fundraiser this Fall. Instead we will be appealing to the school community to make a direct contribution to the Highland Goffe's Falls PTA. HGF PTA is a 5012 (c)3 organization which means your donation is tax deductible. More information about this "No Sale" fundraising program will be sent out  next week.

For those interested in other fundraising methods, we have entered into a year-long partnership with TinyOwl. TinyOwl is a gift company that enables you to upload photographs and purchase personalized keepsake items. The gift card order form was sent home last Thursday.

If you need another copy, please contact Beth or Stacey immediately.

TinyOwl also allows us to create custom folders specific to HGF that can be shared with parents. For instance, by group, team, classroom or event.

TinyOwl gift cards for $15 or $20 are available for purchase now through Friday, September 25th through the paper order form.

As you may know, funds raised by the PTA this year will be going toward enriching our selection of reading texts for intervention programs and classrooms, along with providing funds for field trips.
