Teacher Grants and Fundraising

We have some exciting news to share about our PTA fundraising and teacher support grants!

TEACHER GRANTS

With your support, this September and January the PTA is able to award $2,000 in Teacher Grants.  In September, the $2,000 was awarded to:

1.Hilary Mark, Nancy Felch, Julie Griffin
 (Reading Specialists): for Hi/Low reading materials for students in Grades 3-5 who are reading below benchmark;
2. Julie Griffin (Librarian): 2 author events and one book per classroom;
3. Hillary Mark (Reading Specialist):  “Lending Library” of shared resources for teachers and aides (word study, phonics, reading); and
4.  Julia Hughes:  partial funding for Blue Bots with a recharging station and activity mats.

Julie, Hillary, Julia , and Nancy were extremely grateful for these Teacher Grants.  Also, PTA Co-Presidents Gaya and Ginnie would like to pass on a thank-you to all of the PTA volunteers and donors who have made those grants possible. 

Note: If you would like to be part of the Teacher Grant review committee in January: reviewing the grant applications and making a recommendation to the PTA Executive Board, please let our PTA  know:  ptajuanabriones@gmail.com

Good Eggs Fundraiser

Our school has the opportunity to work with Good Eggs on a two month fundraiser! GE is a grocery delivery service that works directly with farmers in CA and delivers to your door. They also have meal kits for those of you that may be too busy to cook!

Here’s how it works: During the months of October and November, 5% of sales using our code JBGE19 will go directly to our school.

How do families enroll? To enroll in the fundraiser, parents need to visit schools.goodeggs.com and enter the code JBGE19 before placing an order. You only need to do this once, and then 5% will be donated back for all subsequent orders from October 1 through November 30. Plus, new customers will receive $20 off their first order!

The more people we sign up, the more money we can raise for PTA programs, so please pass the code JBGE19 along to friends, neighbors, or anyone who may be interested, even if they already use Good Eggs. The more the merrier!
