Sigler Elementary Monday Memo

September 19th

Protect This House - #IWill

Our theme at Sigler Elementary this year is "Protect This House".


If you were to look up the word "house" in the dictionary, it is defined as: a building for human habitation, especially one that is lived in by a family or small group of people


Sigler Elementary is our building and you are a part of our family. Just as you take precautions to protect your home, this year we ask students, staff and families to do their part to "Protect This House". In order to successfully "Protect This House" each of us needs to know our role and agree to successfully fulfill that role, daily. Anything short is letting our students down. We do not have time for that. In order to ensure we all do our part to "Protect This House" we will use the hashtag #IWill as our rally cry and statement to empower and communicate exactly what each of us will be doing to ensure the success of our "house" this year and more importantly the success of the small group of people that live in our house...OUR STUDENTS.


#IWill

This fundraising opportunity is just that...I hope you take a minute to join us.

This year Sigler Elementary is excited to be partnering with a fun, free, and truly easy fundraiser called Shoparoo! Schools nationwide are already earning hundreds and even thousands every year through Shoparoo and it’s a great opportunity for us to really make a difference this year!

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 Sigler 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!
