SCRIP Sellers Needed!

If you have 20 minutes to volunteer in the morning or at the end of the day we need you at the SCRIP table. Selling SCRIP cards brings in about $10K each year for our S.M.A.R.T. programs and teachers but we can't receive this money if we are not able to sell the cards.

Please consider volunteering 1 shift per week or even 1 every other week! Contact LosAlamitosPTA@Gmail.com or Mariela Borbon, mariela.borbon@gmail.com for more information!

Consider downloading and setting up the Benefit App to buy SCRIP. You can purchase cards on the evenings, weekends and during summer using your Credit Card or Bank Account. Go to your App Store and search Benefit Lifestyle!

Pride Store Needs Volunteers

On Tuesdays after school Los Alamitos students are able to redeem their Lion Paw Tickets for rewards. We could use one or two more volunteers to help with the Pride Store from 1:45 – 2:15 pm on Tuesdays.

Please contact Annie Moro amoro@sjusd.org or Suranga Ketkar sketkar@sjusd.org if you are able to volunteer. Thank you!

Start Collecting Your Dandy Day Donations Online!

The Dandy Day kick-off rally took place this past Monday and students have taken home donation envelopes. Please keep them in a safe place and return them to school as soon as possible! There is a letter on the envelope with all the critical information about Dandy Day.

Your student will be considered registered once you either go online or fill out the envelope. Use the website to email relatives, friends and neighbors. They can pledge online very easily, check it out!

www.losalamitoswat.com

This year if you pledge online your t-shirt minimum is $80, if you pledge by cash or check your t-shirt minimum is $90. Please remember to indicate your student's t-shirt size on the envelope and that all per lap pledges can only be taken online.

You must return the envelope, with ALL donations, by October 9th.

Our first contest was launched with the envelopes! One lucky student at the school received, with their donation envelope, a GOLDEN TICKET. Look for the GOLDEN TICKET inside your student’s envelope.

Keep an eye out, if it is your student, he or she will get to walk the first lap with Dandy and the poster winners! Turn it into the front office with your name, teacher and grade on it to win!

PTA Silent Auction Donation Collection Beginning September 24th!

We hope you are thinking of all the great items and services that you can donate to this year's Dandy Day Silent Auction. We plan to compile over 150 baskets for the highest bidders to take home on Dandy Day.

Do you have a small business that you would like to promote to the school community, consider donating your services! We will highlight Los Alamitos Family Businesses.

Beginning September 24th, look for the silent auction room to be open for you to donate your new, unopened items from birthday gift toys to housewares to wine! We are so grateful for your support. Thanks again to all volunteers who are coordinating class baskets as well! The auction takes a lot of hands to compile but it really does generate much needed money for our S.M.A.R.T. programs!

Donate now and come ready to shop on Dandy Day!

Questions for donations before September 24, contact Laura Jackson or Tracy Cavano at Lstmariejackson@gmail.com or Tcavano72@gmail.com.
