On Monday, October 5th, we kick off our 2nd annual NO-BRAINER FUNDRAISER. Last year’s inaugural campaign, with your help, raised close to $22,000. This year we’ve set a goal of $25,000.
This direct donation campaign will run for two weeks and end on October 18th. 100% of the money donated will stay within our school and is 100% tax deductible. 100% of the funds will support each and every student at Riverglades Elementary School. Ms. Seltzer has identified promethean boards, document cameras and touchscreen activity boards as several of the items on her “wish list.” Your generous donation will also help pay for things such as Cultural Arts Night, author visits to the school and classroom books. Be on the lookout for more information in the coming weeks.
