Fifth Grade Newsletter
October 18, 2018
You should have received an email with a link to your child's pledge (“donation”) page. You do not need to login or change anything. Simply make a donation for whatever you can, and share your child's link with friends and family. We are shooting for 100% participation so no amount is too small.
If you do not receive the email for whatever reason, simply search and find your child's online pledge page here: https://99pledges.com/fund/2018smithstampede
Keep those pledges coming in so we can meet our goal.
Student Council Applications
Is your child interested in running for Student Council? Your child can get an application from his or her teacher, complete it, and return to Mrs. Redburn by Monday, October 22nd. Your child will create a campaign poster to hang in classroom and present 1-2 minute speech to home room class on Friday, October 26. Contact Mrs. Redburn for specific questions at firstname.lastname@example.org.
A flier about this will be in your child's Thursday folder.
