Fund-Raiser 2008 Kickoff

September 7, 2007

WHEN: Thursday, September 13th at 8:45 AM
WHERE: Multi-Purpose Room

Please join us for this year’s Fund-Raiser Kickoff. The goals of this Kickoff are to discuss and agree on the Theme and Format for this year’s event, assign volunteers, establish Committee Chairs and review an initial timeline that will also allow the team to have a huge amount of fun completing everything on time.

Mrs. Thornton and the PTA have included on their “wish-list” this year: Technology upgrades and new equipment, native plants and supplies, outdoor equipment and a Science initiative along with sound equipment and lighting for the multi-purpose room – That’s a lot of stuff!!!

However all of these are consistent with Strawberry Point School’s “Dream” for the future – A respect for the environment we live in, a use of more technology and less paper, an emphasis on nature and improving the play areas – which of course the existing Wetlands project is an important part. We hope you can make it on Thursday to keep building this dream!
