Kroger Cards Help Generate BIG MONEY for Our School!
Kroger donates 4% of all money you spend after you scan your Kroger Plus card as long as you connect the Plus card to our Longbranch PTA account.
If 400 families connected their cards and spent $100 a week at Kroger, each family would make $4 per week. That's $1600 a week.That's $19,000 a quarter. That's unreal. That's plain and simple easy money.
We encourage you to visit Kroger.com and create an account. Click Community Rewards. Search for Longbranch and connect your plus card with Longbranch PTA. It's the EASIEST fundraiser you'll ever participate in, period.
Our First PTA General Meeting
Please join us THIS TUESDAY September 13th at 6:30 p.m. for the first general meeting of the year for our Longbranch PTA! We will be discussing what our PTA does and the budget for the year. We would love to have you there!
After the meeting will be the Leader in Me Parent Bootcamp where you can learn about how the Leader in Me program affects the parents/caregivers of our students and what you can do to help the program on your end!
If you have not filled out your popcorn Friday form it's still not too late! The form can be found on the PTA website at www.longbranchpta.org and sent to school in your child's folder!
$5.00 per child covers all 9 of our popcorn Fridays.
The next one will take place on Thursday October 6th due to Friday being our Fall Break.
