Dimes Towards Diplomas Fundraiser

** Update 12/1/18 **

In the first 2 months we have already raised $900!!

Don't forget to ask family members and friends to donate dimes for Christmas. If you have a birthday coming up you could also ask for some dimes for our classroom libraries.

October 2 we are kicked off our “Dimes Towards Diplomas” fundraiser for classroom library books.   Families fill bottles with dimes. Ask your aunts, uncles, grandparents and even big sisters and brothers to save dimes to donate.

 

Watch your bottle fill up each day as your family adds dimes and know that your donation will help reach the goal of 300 books per classroom.

One dime at a time we will march towards our 2018-19 school year goal of $5000.00 for the Classroom Libraries.

To learn more about our dimes fundraiser, join the PTA on FaceBook live Tuesday, October 2 at 7:00.

Classroom Libraries play a key role in providing access to books and promoting literacy; they have the potential to increase student motivation, engagement, and achievement and help students become critical thinkers, analytical readers, and informed citizens. We know that no one book is right for every student and classroom libraries offer ongoing opportunities for teachers to work with students as individuals to find books that will ignite their love for learning, calm their fears, answer their questions, and improve their lives in any of the multiple ways only literature can.
