Please save the date for our 2019 Give to Grow event! This year it will be held at Rayback Collective on Thursday, April 4th at 6:30 p.m.
WHAT IS GIVE TO GROW?
Give to Grow is a capital campaign with the purpose of providing one-time money for school initiatives that strategically work toward our shared vision and goals. Our vision states: At Foothill Elementary, we are committed to creating an engaging environment that nurtures the whole child. Our interdisciplinary approaches to learning are inquiry-based, student-centered and collaborative. We challenge all learners through differentiation and measure their success in multiple ways to truly reflect their individual growth and progress.
The Give to Grow initiative is not intended to replace Fund the Fox, and is distinctly different in that it targets specific, innovative improvements at Foothill Elementary. Based on input from Foothill staff, parents and students, money raised for this year's Give to Grow campaign will go towards experiential learning opportunities and innovative furniture.
We are in the initial stages of collecting donation items for the auction from local businesses. If you have a local business or have a connection to a local business, we would love your support.
Do you have a special talent? We are looking for people to host experiential events to auction off (e.g. wine/beer tasting, cocktail making night, cooking class, jewelry making, knitting, informational learning classes etc.)
Do you personally have items that you would be willing to donate? (e.g. vacation rentals, season sports tickets, massage, acupuncture, interior design etc…)
Please contact Alexis Schwartz at email@example.com if you are able to donate to our event or if you have any questions.
Your Foothill PTO is very excited to be offering a new program in conjunction with Crayola. It’s called Crayola ColorCycle– an amazing program devised to repurpose used markers rather than sending them to landfills!
The ColorCycle program has repurposed more than 70 tons of expended markers in the United States and Canada since 2013, and uses the most advanced plastic conversion technologies available today to make wax compounds for asphalt and roofing shingles as well as to generate electricity that can be used to heat homes, cook food, and power vehicles.
Last week, each classroom at Foothill began collecting used markers that would otherwise be discarded. You can support this effort at home by sending any used markers you may have around the house- even non-Crayola brands! - to school with your child to deposit in their classroom bin. Highlighters and dry erase markers will also be collected.
Thank you in advance for your support and participation! With the help of families like you across the country, the Crayola ColorCycle program can continue to keep tons of plastic out of landfills each year.
We hope you'll join us at our Feed the Foxes dine out event NEXT WEEK at Proto's Pizza.
