It's time to look under your couch cushions and empty your junk drawer of spare change for the annual Waite Park coin drive. This is, surprisingly, one of our most successful fundraisers of the year. We think it's because every kid feels like they can contribute, and some of our teachers (we won't name names....) get REALLY competitive about raising the most money and winning their class a pizza party via the PTA.
So far, 13 of our 19 classrooms have been sponsored by local businesses and/or families. That means they are donating at least $100 to the coin drive fund due to a connection with someone in that class. We need more classroom sponsors! So, if you know of someone with a connection to a small business or some generous grandparents, this is a great opportunity to support the school (and it's tax deductible!).
