Rai$e the Fund$ to Keep the Fun
Hello Windy Ridge Families!
Only 4 more days left to…Rai$e the Fund$ to Keep the Fun! Deadline is Monday, November 13th to be eligible for prizes. Please have all pledge envelopes turned into the school by the end of the day on Monday (11/13), and all online donations submitted by midnight.
So Far our we have raised $13,830.00 of the $30,000 school wide goal. Last year PTA spent more than $50.00 for every child, to fund technology, academics, sports, and family programs, but to keep up this great work we need Everybody’s help! No amount is too small!
In addition to using the Pledge Envelope for cash and check donations, you can make credit card donations as well as share your child’s pledge page with friends and family that are out of town. It’s as easy as 1-2-3:
1. CLICK HERE to go to our 99 Pledges fundraising website.
2. Enter your child’s FIRST name and select from the drop down menu. Pay attention to the teacher to ensure you have the correct student.
3. Share your child’s page on Facebook, Twitter, or e-mail.
We thank you for your help and caring in giving back to your child’s school!
