Parents, your child brought home the fifth grade fundraiser in their take home folder this past Thursday, February 27. The fundraiser is an "Enjoy the City" coupon booklet for north Atlanta that includes coupons to places such as Melvin and Elmo's Bagels, Pizza Hut, Dunkin' Donuts, Smoothie King, Sparkles Roller Skating, Mountasia Family Fun Center, Andretti Karting and Games, Catch Air, and many more family-friendly places.
In order to ensure the success of the fundraiser, we are asking that each family sell just one coupon booklet at the cost of $20, or make a $10 donation to the PTA in lieu of selling a booklet. All fundraising forms and funds should be turned into the 5th Grade Fundraiser box in the Garrison Mill lobby by Monday, March 10. Please make checks payable to GMPTA. Net proceeds will be used by the fifth grade class to present a gift to the school at the end of the school year.
The final deadline in order to receive a shirt is this FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 8th. The shirts look amazing...so you won't want to miss out on this great opportunity to grab the inaugural Gallop shirt.
RAFFLES: Also, please remember that raffle tickets go on sale next week and can be purchased at Bib pickup, on race day and at the Grandparent Luncheon. We will be posting pictures of the amazing baskets tomorrow on the GMPTA website. We have values of up to $1000 on some of these baskets!!
If you have not returned the Driftwood permission form, please do so immediately. We cannot make a decision on chaperones until the forms have been returned. As noted on the Driftwood packet, all other signed forms are due by September 4th. The first signed letter stated the due date of money - September 10th. We appreciate your help getting this in quickly. Deposit checks must be sent soon.
It has come to our attention that the Driftwood meeting coincides with Mabry Middle School Open House. If you have a middle schooler and cannot attend the meeting, we will have a meeting Thursday morning at 9:00 in the media center. The evening meeting is at 6:30 in the cafeteria. Please plan to attend on of them to receive additional information about this optional field trip.
