We want to change your mind about fundraising! We are
introducing the first annual Extra Change fundraiser. We are hoping for a win
- win in fundraising this year. There is nothing to sell, nothing to buy
and nowhere to be! Yet, you can easily be part of the change happening at
McKinley with a little extra change. Every year we must raise funds to help
us cover the cost of the extras that make school a fun place to be. Those
extras include the pride store, field trips, clubs, and student
leadership. Every cent of the extra change we collect will stay right
here at McKinley Elementary and fall under improving academics, fostering
leadership or building culture for students and staff here at our school. We
need to raise $6000 this year! This is quite a goal, but broken down this
equates to roughly $12 per student! We think this is an absolutely reachable
goal, but WE NEED YOU! Beginning Monday, May 13. We are asking you to send in
every spare penny you can find! There will be a penny war between the grade
levels that day and the winner will receive a special change in their day.
Tuesday, May 14, we will go to war with extra nickels. Again, the grade who
collects the most will receive a welcome change! Wednesday we will have a
dime war and Thursday, will be the quarters! Friday will be the best war of the
entire fundraiser. This is the day we will go to war with dollars and checks.
You can even donate online!
