Magazine and Photo Memories Fundraiser off to a Great Start!
Thanks to all of you who participated in turning in the ReachOut books for the Magazine and Photo Memories Fundraiser. We had 300 books collected so the great news is that a Beats Headphones will be raffled from the ReachOut book participants and a winner will be announced on Monday! The next turn in day is this Tuesday, September 16. Don't forget to offer your customers the new photo memories. Some of the exciting prizes will be gift cards, a trip to Studio Movie Grill or Laser Quest, and a LED Remote Controlled Bluetooth Light Speaker. A surprise from the PE Department was just announced....for EVERY student that turns in JUST ONE ORDER, not only will they get a VIP Duck, but a "free fitness day" of their choice! Our goal is that EVERY student turns in at least one order! Please keep up the great work and keep selling either in person or online at www.GaSchoolStore.com by having your customers enter the school code: 2639458!
