Notes from Coach Hood

NO SODA NOVEMBER CAMPAIGN!

McClure Students, Parents and Staff


Please join us in our No Soda November campaign!


Challenge calendars will go home in each student’s take home folder on Tuesday Oct. 29th.


Any student or staff who successfully completes the challenge should turn in their calendar to Coach Hood, Coach Keller or Coach Q. to receive a Certificate of Completion for a job well done!


Did you know that one 20-ounce soda contains MORE SUGAR than 6 donuts or 18 cookies? Wow! That is a lot of sugar! Students will learn about the importance of avoiding sugar and sugary drinks during the months of October and November. Join us in our campaign to focus on healthy habits.


Remember – if you don’t take care of your body, where will you live?

Shoparoo is school fundraising made easy: the free app turns pictures of your everyday shopping receipts into cash donations and sweepstakes entries for our school! Yep, it’s that simple. No more cutting labels, selling door to door, or time-consuming coordinating. All you have to do is shop as you normally do, snap pictures of your receipts with the app, and voila Just shop, snap, earn!

Get started today:
1. Download the free Shoparoo app from the Apple App Store or Google Play Store
2. Select McClure Elementary from the list and start taking pictures of your receipts - shop anywhere, buy anything!
3. You can even select a grade to support and have fun with grade competitions!

There’s no limit to how much money we can raise with Shoparoo - the more supporters, the more we will raise for our school. Schools with just 40 supporters are earning an average of $1,000 every year. That’s free, easy money that we could be fundraising too. Check out shoparoo.com to learn more about this awesome app!

Thank you for your support!
