Thanks a Billion - Target
Open the gratitude spigot! Target will donate $25 to our school for each person who provides a note of thanks to our teachers on their website. It takes just a couple minutes on the Thanks a Billion site.
We will be using the convenient services of SchoolKidz, Inc. and their Teacher Tailored back-to-school supply kit program. Order your kits this spring, and your child's teacher-requested, name brand supplies will arrive in time for next school year.
This program is not a fundraiser but a service to help you save time, making “back-to-school” less hectic and more enjoyable for both students and parents. We believe you will find the pricing to be very reasonable. All kits will be delivered to the school in August, and we will let you know the exact date for parent pick up as it gets closer. Order forms will be sent home very soon!
If you have any questions, please contact Jessica Brown.
