The Giving Tree
Who: CME students and families
What: Donate children's hats, gloves, scarves, socks, etc. AND new or like-new coats to give to our partner school, Harrison Elementary.
When: November 28th - December 9th
Where: Smaller items can be dropped off in the library to decorate our Giving Tree. Coats can be placed in any of the collection boxes through out the building or dropped in the library to place under the tree.
Why: The Giving Tree is hosted by the special area teachers of CME every year and in recent years has expanded with the help of the PTA to include the coat drive/donations. The special area teachers would like families to give towards this in lieu of giving them any holiday gifts. During the holiday season we want to encourage our students and families to help others less fortunate than us. It is always more joyful to give than to recieve.
Kroger Community Rewards Fundraiser
The Kroger fundraising program is changing. You no longer need to buy reloadable Kroger gift cards to support the Clays Mill PTA. Now you will be linking your plus card to Clays Mill as a part of Kroger's new Community Rewards program that begins September 1st in order for us to recieve a quarterly payout based on our spending at Kroger. Please visit the following website and link your plus card to us by logging in to your online Kroger Plus account (or setting up the online feature if you haven't) and connecting to our organization--CME PTA's ID: 11655.
We collect Box Tops for Education! Please make sure any box tops you turn in are taped down to a box tops paper and/or are in a closed ziploc baggie labeled with your child's name and their homeroom teacher's name! The collection basket for Box Tops is the white basket outside of the school library!
