WPE Community Newsletter - Week of September 27

Message from the PE Teacher


Dear Panda Parents:


Welcome to the easiest fundraiser ever! No buying, no selling!


For the month of October, we are asking parents to Adopt-A-Day (or several days) and donate the amount of the date(s) you choose.


Example: If you adopt October 10th, you would donate $10: October 15th = $15 etc. If you would like to adopt more than one day, you would total the amount of those days - October 1, 2 and 3 would be $6. All adoptions are online through the following link:

Funds raised will be used to enhance our outdoor student learning areas with new shades and outdoor seating! It is going to be beautiful! Each class who fills their calendar will receive a special reward. Feel free to share with family & friends to help reach their goal!



Just click and begin!



Blessings,
