Did you know that in the past, the basket raffle alone generates about $3000 for the PTA?
Do you know what happens to the money PTA raises? Yes, it funds social events but it also supports SO MUCH MORE. Here's a list of what has been or will be accomplished this year:
PTA Community Social Events:
*Back to School Picnic

*Family Movie Night
*Volunteer Thank-you Breakfast

When the Reagan Community of Students, Staff, and Families each play their little piece of the giving puzzle, we can create a beautiful picture of enduring support.
Potential Future PTA Funded Projects

*Garden Maze
*Support for K-5 morning Enrichment
In 2018, for every class that submits a raffle basket, that class will get (2) entries in a drawing to win a popcorn party.
If two classes pair up to put together a basket, the basket will have one (1) entry into the drawing, but both classes will get to participate in the popcorn party should their basket get chosen. (If you get enough donations to split into 2 baskets then the paired classes will get one (1) entry for every basket donated bringing the total to two (2) entries.)
You can use the following image to copy onto sticker labels, print, and place in each participating teacher's mailbox to be distributed to the kids as a reminder. (Here's word document for printing, but may need to be adjusted for your label sheet: Popcorn Party Sticker Labels)

"Be a 'POP-star' by bringing in a class basket donation!"
"Success POPs up when you donate"
