Fall Raffle Results

The Fall Raffle Fundraiser was a huge success thanks to all of you: Students, Parents/Guardians, Staff and Teachers!!! First we would like to give a big thank you to our Sponsors: Northwest Dental Group, Rochester Toyota, Thrivent Financial, Collins Orthodontics, Scenic Oaks West, and Superior Screeners. With their generous donations we were able to cover all our expenses so every raffle ticket sold was profit for the PTA general fund to support field trips, student enrichment dollars, teacher support, and events. In addition, we asked for Teacher Grant Applications; where teachers could apply for a grant to support their classroom learning or activity. We received 7 Teacher Grants. The teachers were asked to present their grant requests at the last PTA meeting in November and the PTA members voted on the grants to award.

We would also like to thank our Fall Raffle Teams: the Sponsorship, Forms, Assembly, and especially the Collection Teams, who volunteered countless hours to stuffing, alphabetizing, counting, and collecting envelopes. It was a great team effort and we couldn’t have done it without you!

We were excited to announced the Fall Raffle Grand Prize winner and Kid Prize winners live at the November PTA meeting. Most of the Kid Prizes were donated from two local businesses and one world wide company. Thank you Prairie Walls, Sylvan Learning Center, and American Girl for your donations.

Congratulations again to Molly T. the winner of the $1000 Target Gift Card.
