******************* 145 Envelopes to Raise $$ for Teachers College
Along with the Pancake Breakfast the "145 Envelope Fundraiser" to support our teacher’s professional development with Columbia University’s Teachers College will begin! How does it work? Each envelope is priced from $1 to $145 . You choose an envelope and donate the amount written on the envelope (cash, check made out to CHB PTA, or Venmo @CHB-PTA). Choose envelope 10, put in your $10 donation and you're all set.
Your donation is 100% tax deductible. When we all the 145 envelopes have been taken, we will have raised just over $10,000! Find us when you check in at the Pancake Breakfast on Saturday morning, and then over the coming weeks in the CHB school lobby until we reach our goal. Let’s do this CHB!!
******************* Join the PTA - We'd love your help by joining and/or donating to the PTA. As an official member of the PTA, you get to vote on PTA topics (electronically or in person) such as the yearly budget. You're also not signing up to a yearlong commitment of volunteer service (although that would be nice). You can join and disappear into the fog for all you like.
To make it easier, you can fill out your Membership Info online here and send your payment and donation to us via Venmo @CHB-PTA. Membership is $10 per adult. Put your name(s) in the comments and the amount of the donation if applicable, and you're all set!
We're always looking for feedback from our fellow parents. If you have any thoughts, comments, questions, or concerns. Let us know @ email@example.com reply to this email. If there's something you'd like to have the PTA include in next week's newsletter, let us know.
