Hurray for Readathon!

Dear Families,

Readathon excitement is filling the halls, while adult book fans rejoice. Have fun encouraging your kids to read at home, and also reading to them. And don’t forget to log those minutes!

As cold and flu season approaches, a reminder to call the attendance line (a different number from the main line) when your child is unable to attend school:541-790-7092.

Also, Picture Day is this Tuesday, October 11. If you’d like to pre-order your photos online, there is still time. If you choose not to order online, but still want to order pictures, you can bring in the order form with payment on picture day.

Special thanks go out to: Kathy Lynn for organizing a fantastic Walk and Bike to School Day and to Constance VanFlandern for designing and coordinating our Charlemagne Swag sales!

Sign up for eScript and Amazon Smile!

Two simple ways to contribute at no additional cost to you.

Some parents have already been diligently using both eScrip and Amazon Smile, but so many more could be earning free money for our school off the purchases you already are making. With eScrip, businesses such as Market of Choice donate a portion of their profits to our school directly. All you have to do is sign up! Same deal with Amazon Smile. In just  few minutes you can start earning money for the school without all the time and work used to fund-raise otherwise.

eScript:
1) go to the sign up page

2) type in ‘Charlemagne French Immersion Elementary’ and/or other schools of your choice & then select

3) input required info to complete the registration.

Once you signed up, every time you shop at Market of Choice, a percentage goes to the school!


Amazon Smile
: You use the same account on Amazon.com and AmazonSmile. AmazonSmile will donate 0.5% of the purchase price from your purchases.

1) Go to https://smile.amazon.com/

2) Type in “Charlemagne at Fox Hollow PTO Company” & then select.

You are done! The name of the organization you support will show up at the top left when you shop.

Remember to shop at smile.amazon.com, not the regular Amazon.com.

We earned ~$2,000 from January to August. We can do better. Sign up today and help us double the funds in the next 6 months!

Feel free to contact wenlanhu2010@gmail.com if you have any questions.

Prizes will be awarded for minutes read.

Students who read 100 minutes will get a piece of tape to tape Principal Eric to the library wall so he can be “STUCK on reading!”

Pizza Party for the class with the best participation.

Grand prize: eReader (Kindle/Nook) for one lucky participant!

“The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go. (Dr. Seuss)”

Let the grand adventure begin!

Book Exchange

A BIG thank you to everyone who donated books and sent books with children on Friday to trade. Because of you, the book exchange was a huge success!
Every student got a “new” book on Friday that wanted one! What a way to start off the Read Week of the Read-a-thon!
