What a great (and rainy) first week back...we survived....and did an AMAZING job :))))
Good news! I got my laptop finally repaired and back just in time for the weekend to do my report cards! (I did them on my school laptop AND even saved to my flash drive, and they got deleted!!!! I think technology likes me ;) hehe
Looking forward to re-writing them though because EVERY child has improved academically AND socially. SO PROUD :)
Anyway, next Friday we will be starting our American Heart Association "Jump Rope for Heart" fundraiser. Your child will be sent home with a packet to raise money and earn prizes.
Last year, I took it upon myself to make my own page. My original goal was to raise $200 to earn all the "ducks in a row" and SUPER DUCK! If you take a look in our classroom window, they are displayed there. I not only raised $200, but over $400!!!!
I just created my webpage and have a personal goal to raise $500 this year. My goal for creating my own page is to show our kiddos the importance of how ONE person can make a difference, and how just $1 can save a life. I am going to be asking 500 people for $1 in hopes to reach my goal :)
If I can raise $150 by our assembly next Friday, I can earn 3 "puppies" and a plush toy for our classroom, which I plan on using to symbolize as our "Caring Dog."
Again, YOUR child will have a chance to earn their OWN "puppies" key chains when we get their donation packets next Friday.
If you would like to donate just $1 to my page to be part of those 500 people and show your child that they made a difference, that is wonderful :)
You can help your child create THEIR OWN PAGE and ask for donations for YOUR child, so they can win their own puppy key chains starting next Friday...and I recommend doing that because I think it is a great way for them to get involved and help make a difference :)
Since I did it last year, AHA gave me an email to get jump started in hopes that I can raise $150 by the assembly. It would be great if I could raise that money in time to be an example to our kiddos :)
Thanks for reading this lengthy email, and--as always--thanks for your continued support in your child's education! Have a wonderful weekend, and see you on time and ready to learn Monday!
