October is fundraising month at Waite!

October is fundraising month at Waite Park. This money is used to support all of the wonderful programs at Waite Park, scholarships for enrichment activities and provides for additional funding to each classroom for enrichment. We partner with families and our community to provide additional support for our wonderful neighborhood school.

Reminders and deadlines:

Coffee order forms - due Oct. 15 Money should be collected at the time of sale by cash or check. There is no online ordering option for the coffee. If you need more time to collect, please contact Amanda Muenzer, Liason. 
Direct Donations and classroom sponsors- due Oct. 31 You can donate on the Waite Park blog page using our donate button! No need to send in cash or a check.

A minimum $100 donation for classroom sponsorship. We have 5 classroom sponsors so far! Local businesses usually support one of our rooms but anyone is welcome from friends and family to neighbors. 
  • We try to match each classroom with a Classroom Sponsor - if you know anyone with a small business who could use the PR - it's a $100 tax deductible donation. Let us know and we can send a letter or get one to you -

Coin Drive - done Oct. 31 The top earning class(es) will get a pizza or sub party!
  • Checks should be made out to "Waite Park PTA"
  • The Coin Drive is October 14 - 31. The room that brings in the most cash in the form of coins and small bills wins a sub party. We keep a running total for each classroom, updated daily, on the PTA bulletin board located next to the staff lounge. 


Family Dinner Night + Flu Shot Clinic

Friday, October 24
6:30 pm
$3/each OR $10/family for dinner (the flu shots are free)

Join us for our annual Family Dinner Night + Flu Shot Clinic! We serve over 400 people every year at this very popular family event. But it takes a lot of help to pull it off - so if you can lend a hand with food prep, set-up, buffet stocking, clean-up, or Spanish and/or Somali translation for the nice nurses distributing flu shots, let Brad Dunham know or 612.859.3570.
