“Help Our Playground” Fundraisers

The PTO wants to remind you about a few fundraisers that are currently going on in order to support the playground renovations….
1.  Spiritwear – We are selling both Eshleman and Penn Manor spiritwear again this fall.  An order form should have come home with your children either last week or this week.  We also have samples of the two different tie-dye shirts, size samples for the clothing, a sample of the stadium blanket, baseball hat, and winter beenie cap in the office.  The orders are due Friday, September 28.  If you have any questions about this sale, please do not hestitate to call Meridith Eckroat (872-6165).
2.  Car Magnets – We have new car magnets for sale!  Some of you purchased them at “Meet the Teacher” night….thank you!  They have the Penn Manor logo in the middle with “Eshleman Elementary” around the outside.  They are $5, and they can be purchased in the office.  We will also have them at other PTO events throughout this school year.
2.  GIANT Bonuscards – We are having a competitition to see how many GIANT Bonuscard numbers our Eshleman families can collect. Our school has the potential to make a huge amount of money for our playground off of this fundraiser.  Again, a paper should have come home with your children either last week or this week explaining the fundraiser.  The nice part about this fundraiser is, no one needs to purchase anything (other than groceries!).  No need to stress about this fundraiser either!  If you don’t shop at GIANT, that’s okay!  Maybe your friends and family do, and a simple email to them can collect their bonuscard numbers.
The PTO would also like to thank all of the teachers and parents who attended our first meeting this past Thursday night after “Meet the Teacher” night.  We had a great turnout, great discussions, and great feedback from all of you.  We are looking forward to a great school year, and we hope that you will all continue to attend the PTO meetings, volunteer at our events, and communicate with the PTO.  We can’t help make Eshleman what it is without the amazing support from our families.  Thank you all so much!
