It's Carnival Time! PTO Weekly Update 10-25-15

You Made It Happen!

• Thank you to everyone that helped make the Staff Conference Dinner a huge success last week. From setup to clean up, all the food and everything in between, we couldn’t have done it without you.
• Thank you to the Book Fair helpers, because of you so many kids have wonderful new books to read!
We have 11 days left in our fall Learn2Earn Reading Fundraiser!  Glenridge students are reading around the clock! If you have not sponsored your student of invited friends and family to sponsor your student now is the time!  Just click on the invite sponsor button at the top of your Learn2Earn profile page and enter email address of friends and family. If you want to invite friends on social media like Facebook and Twitter there's an option for that too.  Once you invite a sponsor an email explaining what we are raising funds for and how they can help will be sent out.  It's that easy!
Now through November 5th help the Glenridge PTO raise money with Learn2Earn to fund Accelerated Reader and Raz-Kids. Two reading programs that students and teachers use to help motivate our kids, help them reach their personal reading goals and meet Kent School District reading standards. Information on how to set up an account for your child came home on Friday, October 2nd. Please take time to read the information, help your child activate their account and send out sponsor invites.
A short video on account set up can be found here.
A short video on how to sponsor your child and how to invite others to sponsor your child can be found here.
See how great we are doing and follow our fundraising progress here.
If you have any questions please contact the PTO or support at Learn2Earn.
