PROGRAMS PROVIDED BY PTA FUNDRAISING:
We’re already busy planning our next school year and are getting excited all over again! Please remember to join our PTA next year and be an active participant to help us continue to provide our students with the great programs and activities that make Rosedell a top-notch school in the Santa Clarita Valley.
PTA, our families and staff have gone to great lengths this year to make our fundraising efforts successful! We know it’s A LOT to ask of our families and appreciate all the generous donations and participation in our many fundraising endeavors during these tough economic times. However, we continue to work hard to provide the BEST for our children at Rosedell despite the budget challenges and our own economic challenges. I wanted to summarize what all our efforts accomplished this school year, so I asked PTA to help me list all the AMAZING goals we’ve set and met this year!
6th Grade “End of the Year” Information
Due to the low participation in fundraising efforts and very few direct donations at the beginning of the school year, we now need to ask for direct donations from students to pay for the “End of the Year” 6th grade events. 6th Grade Social, T-shirts and Yearbook Signing Pizza PartyWe cannot require individual students to pay for any activities therefore we must raise the money through donations. We are asking for a donation of $35 per student to cover the costs of the Social, special order 6th Grade T-Shirts and the Yearbook Signing Pizza Party. If we do not raise all of the $ necessary for the “end of the year” events, then we will have to cancel things based on what we do have by first eliminating the t-shirts, secondly the pizza party and then scaling back on the Social. More information on these will be sent home closer to June. Graduation day refreshments are hosted by 5th grade parents and are not in jeopardy of cancelation. Please send in a check made payable to Rosedell PTA (write your student's name in the memo field), or use this link to donate by credit card.(**credit card transactions have a $1 transaction fee that we are charged by PayPal for the service)https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_s-xclick&hosted_button_id=8GZMJQT4RAU8N We need all donations in by April 15th so we can plan and schedule the remainder of the school year. If you have questions, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org, Brandi Clayton at email@example.com , or Mr. Pettipas.

Shoparoo (www.shoparoo.com) - a free mobile app that turns grocery receipts into school fundraising dollars, launched for the iPhone and Android. After grocery shopping for any products at any store, simply snap a photo of your receipt with Shoparoo to earn “Roo Points”–which the app converts into real cash for Rosedell. Shoparoo makes raising money extremely easy–there is nothing to
buy, sell, collect or turn - in so it does not require parents or supporters to commit lots of time, change buying habits, or take on new
responsibilities. Receipts from ANY grocer, supercenter, club store, dollar store, drugstore, convenience store, or pet supply store count regardless of what you buy. Receipts from restaurants, clothing, home improvement or gas-only do NOT. Participation doesn’t require any credit card or bank information, and that information cannot be obtained from receipts captured with Shoparoo. To further alleviate privacy and security concerns, you are welcome to cross out any specific line-items from those receipts before they submit. Information gathered by Shoparoo is aggregated to identify trends and general consumer behavior, and is completely anonymous –no
personal information is shared with brands or marketers. Don't have a smart phone? Simply bring your receipts to the office and drop them in the Shoparoo Box. We'll take care of the rest!
'My Coke Rewards' Program for Schools - If you already buy Coca Cola products, such as Dasani Water, Powerade, Fuze, Coke, Diet Coke, Sprite, and Minute Maid Juices, then you can help Rosedell earn free athletic equipment, classroom supplies, learning aids and more. Just check each product for a special label that says 'My Coke Rewards.' You can type the codes yourself on their website (http://www.mycokerewards.com) or turn the codes in to your teacher and we'll do it for you. It's that easy!
Back-to School Shopping = Box Tops for Rosedell - When you are out shopping for back-to-school supplies, snacks, and clothes watch for specially marked packages that have the Box Tops label. When we turn these labels in to the Box Tops company we get cash to use for anything we need- field trips, buses, special events, classroom supplies, and more!
These are just a few of the hundreds of items that carry the Box Tops labels.
