Innisbrook Wrapping Paper Fundraiser

Once again Purchase School is participating in the Innisbrook Wrapping Sales. Your child will be bringing home the catalog from school this week. Inside, you will see wrapping paper, accessories and chocolates and more. Every purchase that you or a family member makes, makes money for our school. You can share the catalog with friends and co-workers as well. Even out of town family and friends can help!

Please make the checks out to the Purchase PTA.

You must enter all of your orders online. Detailed directions are on the white sheet inside the catalog.

Items will be delivered to school around Thanksgiving.

Box Tops

Dear Parents -

Welcome back to school!! It’s time to start clipping and saving your “Box Tops for Education” labels again! Box Tops can be found on hundreds of products in your home. Each box top coupon submitted is worth ten cents for our school and is used to support existing PTA programs. Last year we did a fantastic job of collecting $800 worth of Box Tops and our goal is to collect even more this year!!

Please submit your Box Tops by sending them in an envelope or Ziploc to your child’s teacher. Please be sure to include your child’s name and teacher’s name.

The class with the most Box Tops submitted by March 31st will earn a black and white class photo! The photo will be taken by our resident photographer, Mr. Kalman!!

Please feel free to contact me at jandmcostabile@optimum.net with any questions.

Thanks for your support,
Marianne Costabile
