The University School Foundation is conducting a fundraiser to support our teachers and the implementation of the Common Core standards. Our awesome teachers are doing everything possible to teach to these new standards, BUT they need our help!!! They do not have certain materials they need to effectively teach to these new standards at a time when the budget is already stretched very thin.
REAL NEEDS CAN BE MET- BOTH YOURS (for gifts and entertaining needs) AND OUR TEACHERS’. Other area schools have earned THOUSANDS of dollars doing this fundraiser! We just need each family to do a little and together we can make a HUGE difference.
Basically it is broken into 3 segments that will take place over a short period of time.
1st- attached to this letter is an order form for Cheesecake Factory cheesecakes (at 10.00 off regular prices!) or chocolates from Barnes and Noble. Please think of ways you can use these over the holidays as gifts or for parties. They stay fresh for up to 8 months in the freezer. Send this form and payment to the school office by Nov. 27th. You can pick up your goodies on or after our main event at Barnes and Noble on Dec. 9th.
2 nd- On Dec. 9th from 5:30 – 8:00 come to Barnes and Noble to kick start your holiday shopping. We have special coupons for local restaurants. Simply Delicious Deli and Bakery will be providing yummy samples. Need gift ideas for teachers? We have lists of books that teachers need for their classrooms! Buy gifts for everyone on your list – music, food, games etc… MOST IMPORTANTLY WE RECEIVE UP TO 25% OF PURCHASES.
3RD - Have friends and family from out of town order online from DEC. 9-13 using our special code . We still receive up to 25% of purchases.
PLEASE support our school in this easy way! Updates will be on school website! Thank you in advance for helping our teachers provide the best for our students.
