Fundraiser - Trunk or SWE Treat Recap
It is truly overwhelming the way the community came together to support our school during our Fall Fundraiser! From the Fundraising Committee to the Trunk Volunteers to the teachers donating candy and each and every donation, none of what we accomplished would have been possible. There was a tremendous amount of work behind the scenes, but the journey alone has been just as exciting as the results- and it is an honor to have worked alongside this outstanding group.
We are thrilled to report that our all-in earnings for Fall Fundraising will total $27,200. This includes individual donations, community and SWE family sponsors, and what we made on Friday night for concessions. Because this was an in-house fundraiser not managed by an outside vendor like “He Who Must Not Be Named” (that would take between 30-50% of our earnings), we will keep an incredible 96% of what we raised after fees- $26,273.
NOW for the stuff the kids are excited about….
WINNING GRADE was FIRST, receiving 15 minutes EXTRA recess to be covered by PTA (Wednesday, November 15th thanks to our volunteers!)
WINNING CLASS is MRS. OHL’s! They received Chick-Fil-A and/or pizza lunch last Wednesday, November 8th!
The top student fundraisers are Mason Le and Jacob Ngo, and the student with the most individual donations is Ahmed Azeem; all will have a catered lunch with Dr. Issac after Thanksgiving, 11/29!
· 1st Place receiving 1,000 Soar Bucks is OCULUS
· 2nd Place receiving 750 Soar Bucks is ADOLEO
· 3rd Place receiving 500 Soar Bucks is AUSCULTO
· 4th Place receiving 250 Soar Bucks is PALATUS
· 5th Place receiving 100 Soar Bucks is TACTUS
Last but not least, our final Challenge- Put The WE in SWE winner, receiving over 40 individual donations is MRS. HONSBERGER’s class!!!! They received toys and Pokemon cards!
We hope you all have a wonderful holiday season and recognize how blessed we are to have this incredible SWE community. We are taking a few weeks to rest before beginning to plan our big Spring event- a raffle and carnival that will be open to our community while we celebrate 40 years of enriching students' lives! Mark your Calendar for April 12th- it’s an event you won’t want to miss!
Congratulations to ALL, because TOGETHER…. We SOAR!!!!!
