San Elijo Elementary PTO Updates for 12/18/11
I would like to thank you for all of your help as we competed to win the Clorox Power a Bright Future grant. One of the most gratifying outcomes was the way the San Marcos community came together to support one of its schools. The competition was 45 days long, and we worked for weeks ahead of time preparing to launch our campaign. So, we are sitting on the edge of our seats waiting for the final result. Even though we finished in first place Clorox had yet to upload the text votes for Friday, so we will eagerly wait for official notification of the final result. We are expecting news in early January
The first SEES Book Swap was a great success. Students donated 290 books and 130 of these were donated to the library. Another 40 books were given to the kindergarten classes. Each student that donated a book was given the opportunity to pick out a book for free, and many students also bought books for gifts. Over $118 was raised for the PTO. Thanks to everyone that participated.
