Greetings MGS Families,

We hope everyone is enjoying their Holiday weekend and that you are able to spend time with you family and loved ones. The PTG is so thankful for the help and support of our school community. 

We have extended the deadline to return Jog-A-Thon monies to Dec. 7th. In order for students to receive their t-shirt and school party prizes they must have their pledge money turned in by the deadline. Thanksgiving break is the perfect time to do any remaining pledge collecting from family members you may be spending time with over the weekend.

We also pushed out the PTG board member election to the next meeting in December. Please be sure to email us if you would like to nominate any one.

Lastly, don't forget that this is the perfect time to try out the Benefit Mobil App to earn money for our school while doing your Holiday Shopping. Check our more details below.

Our next PTG meeting is December 4th @ 5:30p in the library. We look forward to seeing you there!

Current Fundraisers

 

Jog-A-Thon

What a great way to get our students physically active and give them an opportunity to take ownership in raising money for their school. This is our largest and primary fundraiser of the year. The final deadline to turn in money is Dec. 7th. Check out the flyer below to see the awesome prizes students can earn this year.
 

Box Tops For Education

Don’t forget to keep clipping those Box Tops. Every dime makes a difference! To find out more about participating products, to get coupons and track our school’s progress visit www.boxtops4education.com.
 

Benefit 

MGS PTG has partnered with Benefit as a free and easy fundraising solution!
 
Benefit is a free iPhone and Android app that allows you to shop at places like Safeway, Target, Starbucks, Amazon, Walmart and many more, while giving up to 20% of every transactions back to our organization. Just shop like you normally do. When it comes time to checkout, instead of pulling out your credit card, pull out the Benefit app and purchase a digital gift card that you redeem instantly.
 
For instance, buy $200 worth of back to school clothing at Gap, and $16 (8%) goes back to your organization. It doesn't cost you a dime beyond what you were already going to spend. It's raising funds without fundraising!
 
Download the app and select Monroe Grade School Parent Teacher Group as your chosen beneficiary to start giving today.
 
For more information go to www.benefit-mobile.com. Feel free to forward this email to family and friends. The more people who participate, the more funds we will raise.

P.S. Linking your bank account earns more than using your your debit card.
