Thanks-GIVING Drive - Nov 7/18

Excel PTO has shifted our fundraising efforts. We listened to our parents’ feedback on last year's surveyand have moved from a “selling stuff” approach to a more direct funding approach.  You can also choose where your money goes, as we have set up different funds to which you can contribute. 
To Kick off this new approach, we bring you...                                                                                               

 Excel Academy Thanks–GIVING Drive. 


Take a moment during this Thanksgiving season to reflect on what you are thankful for at Excel. A fabulous teacher? A beautiful facility? A unique and supportive community? Whatever it may be, we want to celebrate our school by encouraging families to make a direct donation in honor of that special something. 


1. Come up with your “Thankful.” Parents and students are encouraged to think of their own individually. 

2. Make your direct donation online or send a check to our front desk. Our goal is to make up for $6000 we used to make in selling merchandising.  If most families make a $5 recurring monthly donation (or $60 one time donation) we will meet our needs without having to sell a thing! Check the Thermometer to see the progress so far. 

(Checks accepted made out to Excel PTO. Online donation encouraged & preferred.) 

3. Once you make your donation, list your “Thankful” on your Mr. Gobble feather hands from your Friday Folders (or download here), decorate them (optional), and turn them in to the main office. (ask for extras at the front desk).

4. Check out our progress by watching Mr. Gobble grow on the wall by the Library entrance. Our goal is 100% participation before Thanksgiving Break!
