READ FOR RONALD MCDONALD HOUSE

February is READ for the HOUSE at RES!

This student-driven reading program helps support services that the Philadelphia Ronald McDonald House provides to families of seriously ill children while they receive treatment at local hospitals.

Your child can participate by reading each day and listing your minutes on the Read for the House Calendar. Children can receive pledges for each minute read or sponsors can send in a single donation at the end of the month.

Last year, RES raised over $4,000 for this great cause!

Questions? Email Leslie Selbach at lkramer14@yahoo.com.

PENNIES FOR PATIENTS!  CLASSROOM CONTEST!!

Your student should have brought home a cardboard bank and a flyer about the LLS’s Pennies for Patients collection, the PTO Community Outreach project for March.  He/she can use the bank to raise money for this great cause all month long.

Please wait to return your banks until the week of March 30, or right after Spring Break on April 13.  The grade that raises the most money will win a WATER ICE party.  The 2nd place grade will win a soft pretzel/lemonade party.  Students and family can also raise money online (be sure to note the student's name and teacher so the grade gets credit). The online donations will also be tracked by grade if teacher and grade are noted.

Any questions, please reach out to Leslie Selbach.  

Thanks for your continued support of the PTO Community Outreach projects.
