Sigler Elementary Monday Memo

November 16th

Own It

Our theme at Sigler Elementary this year is “OWN IT”. These two simple words set the stage for the 2015-2016 school year and serve as a reminder for students, staff and families that regardless of the circumstances, we must “OWN IT”. There can be no excuses. Each student, teacher and family that walks through our doors has a story to share and obstacles to overcome. Our goal is to empower our students, teachers and families to meet these obstacles head on, overcome them, regardless of their size and “OWN IT”!

NO EXCUSES - "Own It"

Let Us "REMIND" You about What is Happening at Sigler Elementary

Check Out the Ways You Can Support Sigler Elementary...

Shoparoo

This year we are 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 our school from the list and start taking pictures of your receipts - shop anywhere, buy anything!

3. The first 20 supporters at our school will earn an extra $1 donation from Shoparoo for their first receipt!

4. Earn even more Roo Points, or cash donations, by inviting others to join using your personal referral code

5. 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!
