NOTES AND QUOTES August 2016

Welcome back to school! It was so great to get to meet a lot of you at the Ice Cream Social.

The “INVEST IN YOUR CHILD” fundraiser runs through August 25. Please make checks payable to: CGES PTO

The money raised this year will contribute to the continued needs of our growing school.
– All the funds collected directly benefit the students and support College Grove Elementary – the school keeps 100% of donated funds!
– No hassle fundraising means there is no door to door selling, collecting, or delivering; this is also safer for our students.
– All money you donate is tax deductable.
We would love for all families to participate in this fundraser. You can share the opportunity to invest in CGES with grandparents and other loved ones. Also, many companies match personal contributions to non-profit educational organizations (please check with your employers). Every dollar counts! Please take the time to seriously consider the campaign, and offer an investment to help reach our financial goal to help College Grove Elementary!

Deadlines:
Spirit Wear orders are due Friday, August 19.
