Dinner includes your choice of pizza or spaghetti, salad, bread, dessert and beverage. Game ticket books include ten tickets; each game requires one ticket, bouncys are free!
Your help is needed to make this event a success. Visit Sign-Up Genius to volunteer to help with set-up/clean-up, run a game or help with the silent auction.
Don’t forget about your classroom basket for the auction. You will receive a letter/email from your Room Parents with your child’s classroom theme and some ideas for basket items. To help fill your classroom basket, you can either send in item(s) to place in the basket that go along with your theme, or send in a donation (attn: Room Parent) and items will be purchased for the basket. Don’t forget to keep your Room Parent posted if you send in a donation or purchase an item (to avoid duplicates!).

Tonight is Back to School Night. Please take a moment to sign up for the PTA when you arrive. There will be a table at the front collecting cash or check payments. Or if you prefer to use a debit/credit card, there will be a computer set up in the library for online payments. Classes that receive 100% participation earn their teacher the new staff RES Polo shirt and a prime spot parking for a week! Plus the kids will receive a brag tag and a 15 minute extra recess with popsicles! Joining the PTA does not mean you have to volunteer. It does keeps you in the loop of all information being sent by the PTA.
The PTA meeting is from 6:30-7:00, classroom visits from 7:00-7:30 & 7:30-7:55, if you have a second class to visit.
Also, the first collection of box tops are due tomorrow! You should have received your child’s envelope at the beginning of school.
Information packets went home last week – please review these materials! Complete as many sponsor mailers as possible (10 per child is our goal) and/or collect sponsor donations in the given collection envelope. Students who return 10 sponsor forms and/or sponsor donations will receive a Roadrunners on the Run brag tag! All addressed and stamped mailers and collected donations need to be returned to your child’s teacher by September 19 in the white collection envelope. We will then mail out your sponsor letters from school with return envelopes included. Your sponsors can simply fill out the form and mail their donation back to Randolph. (Don’t forget to include stamps on your mailers!)
NEW THIS YEAR, send your sponsors to our online store for an easy way to make a donation! Customize our sample email for your friends and family and send it, along with a sponsor form, to collect donations. Sponsors can make an online donation, or download the form and mail it back with payment. For online donations, be sure to ask your sponsor to add your child’s name and teacher’s name in the “Write a Note to Seller” box during checkout. Don’t forget to add your sponsor email addresses to the front of your run envelope to count them towards your 10 sponsor goal.
If your employer has a matching gifts program, doubling your donation to Randolph Elementary can be as simple as filling out a form! Check out our matching gifts page for more information.
Thank you for your support of our fundraiser!
