Upcoming Fundraiser Information

It is time to kick-off our PTA fundraising efforts for the school year 2010-2011! You may already be aware that with the budget cuts that went into effect this spring, there are no funds for student activities or new technology required by the math program the was implemented last year. The new text books that have been adopted have internet based programs that the teachers can access through the teacher's classroom computer. However, they need a specific projector that allows them to project those images on to the screen for the entire class. There is an immediate need for 13 of these classroom projectors at $600.00 each. That would total $7,800.00 plus tax. In addition, the only money available to fund student activities ( "A.R. parties", reading challenge party, activities to replace field trips, etc.) will have to come from PTA funds. Thus our goal for this fundraiser is $8,000.00. If we could collect $20.00 pre Ridge Crest student we would easily surpass our fundraising goal for this year.
This Friday monring at 8:45 we will have our kick-off assembly for the fundraiser. Many of you visited with us at Back-to-School Night and tasted some of the products from the fundraiser. The Lehi Roller Mill mixes and Idaho Preferred products range in price from$5.00 to $10.00 with the exception of one gift basket that is more.
We receive 45-50% profit on all the products. There are no prizes associated with the fundraiser this year. However, we are working on our own prizes for the top student fundraisers through the generous donations of some of our local businesses.
If you would rather not participate in the fundraising sales and just donate instead, please send your check or cash to Ridge Crest PTA Fundraising. Please mark the envelope clearly and include your student's name and teacher so that they get credit for participating in our fundraiser.
Thank you for your support! If you have any questions please leave a message at Ridge Crest for Nancy Wells or Michelle Kofoed.
