 PRINCIPAL'S MESSAGE

 

Hello Poet Families!

       Our Fall Fundraiser is in full swing and so far we are doing well.  We have partnered with Charleston Wrap to help us raise money for the school.  There are a few incentive programs for students who participate with the fundraiser.  The Poet staff appreciates all of the support you provide our school.  Although we have a few smaller fundraisers during the year like That Third Thursday Thing!, this is the main fundraiser for our school. The PTSA uses the funds to provide most of the activities and events at our school:  classroom materials and supplies, awards and goodies at our Excellent Eagle Assemblies and Honor Roll Assemblies, Art supplies, playground balls and equipment, office supplies, the scholastic Reader program, Dads and Donuts/Moms and Muffins, Multicultural Night, and many other activities taking place at Poet.  The biggest item on the annual PTSA budget is of course Field Trips.  With just over 600 students,  the PTSA spends upwards of $13,000 or $14,000 every year on Field Trips!  That is a tremendous amount of money and our PTSA wants to continue providing these valuable hands-on experiences for our students. 
 
       For the past few years the school has been able to raise roughly $15,000 from the Fall Fundraiser.  As you can see, most of that money goes for Field Trips alone.  All other funds made from this fundraiser and other smaller fundraisers go to cover other items in the PTSA budget.  Every little bit helps and we appreciate all the help and support you can provide!  
 
       Many parents have asked if they can just make a donation instead of participating in purchasing items through the Fall Fundraiser. The answer of course is a resounding “yes!”  We are sending out a donation form along with this week’s family envelope.  You may have seen the humorous fundraiser letter to parents that has been heating up the internet in recent days.  We’ve really enjoyed the humor and interest for something similar it has generated among Poet parents and hope that you too enjoy a laugh.  Whether you and your children help through the Fall Fundraiser or through donations, any amount, big or small, is greatly appreciated!!!
