The EC School store will not be open March 4 due to early dismissals and conferences!
Our EC School Store is ready for shoppers! All grade levels may shop during store hours. The store will carry a wide variety of items suitable for all ages, including, pens, pencils, erasers, key chains, posters, and more! As well as a few spirit items, our Wildcat headbands and Custom OJR Pura Vida bracelets. (Prices range from $0.25 - $10).
Have you been clipping and saving Box Tops since the last Contest!? Well - time to Spring clean and cash them in! Each Box Top is worth 10 cents. For one week only, we will be collecting Box Tops for Education. Please send in your clipped Box Tops in an envelope or bag labeled with your child's name, homeroom and total. Each student that brings in Box Tops this week will receive a thank you treat from the PTA. Final date for submission is Friday, February 28th.
Talent Show Canceled
Every event the EC PTA provides for our students requires volunteers who are willing to plan and execute the event. After school tryouts and practices, as well as someone with the ability to choreograph the participants' final number, have always been necessary for its success. We know many of our students look forward to the Talent Show every year but we are sad to say that no one has come forward with the ability to commit to running it successfully. We are more than happy to offer the Talent Show again next year if a committee can be raised.
Wow! We've reached $100 on Shoparoo! Thank you to everyone who has been scanning receipts. We've got 41 participants, spread the word and let's keep earning! Shoparoo can be downloaded in your app store. With certain events needing only $200-300, this could fund one of our events without ever spending any money.
Roo Points do not reflect total $ amount spent. Each grocery receipt is awarded based on the total transaction amount on the receipt:
Less than $10 = 10 Roo Points
$10 - $50 = 20 Roo Points
$50 - $100 = 30 Roo Points
$100 or more = 40 Roo Points "
Hassle-Free Fundraising! Turn your shopping receipts into donations for your school. It's that simple. Download the Shoparoo App and select East Coventry PTA as your school of choice. Every time you shop, login to the app and take a photo of your receipt. Each receipt counts as points or raffle drawings (based on your spending). Points are accumulated and turned into cash for the PTA!
EC PTA Amazon WishList!
(and while you're at it - you can add ECPTA as your designated charity on Smile!)
ECPTA provides all our own paper for any communications that go out to our students. We're looking to build up a stock of colored papers for all our flyers! Any brand - any color will do! (as long as it's printer paper!)
- Register your Giant Food Stores Reward Card online or sign in to your account.
- Select East Coventry Elementary.
