Spirit events are an awesome way to help support your local school! The PTO teams up with a local business to provide an opportunity to purchase product and or services with a percent of the proceeds being donated back to the school. Sounds cool, right? We think so too!
The last couple of years, we had to get creative in terms of food ordering, delivery and pick ups but fear not, we have a host of events this year that provide you and your crew plenty of fun and an opportunity to support the school!
Our local H.E.B has been a wonderful source of supplies for our yearly popsicle party, and events like Field Day and BINGO. They are always first to step up and provide us with water bottles, ice, and different soft drinks, trash bags, fresh flowers, balloons and more! You name it, H.E.B donates it to us!
Papa John's, the location at Grant and Louetta have partnered well with Sampson over the last year to provide numerous donations. This year, they donated pizza to the Sampson Faculty for the first month of Staff Appreciation as well as figured out a way to run our grade level fundraisers each month. This is a super cute opportunity for your child to decorate the top of a small pizza box and have it delivered right to their front door. 20% of the proceeds goes right back to Sampson PTO!
This year, the schedule is:
September 15th - 5th grade
October 13th- Kindergarten
December 15th- 2nd Grade
February 16- 4th grade
March 23rd- 1st grade
April 20th- 3rd grade
Who doesn't love Chick fil a? Our local store has been awesome in donating $5 gift cards to our staff at the beginning of the year as well as hosting our first curriculum night on Tuesday, September 21st from 6:00-8:00 p.m. if you order anything; drive thru, curbside or catering and mention SAMPSON, we will receive 10% of the profits!
The best place to start with spirit events is with your students families who happen to also own businesses that make yummy cookies! Mrs. Stephanie graciously donates cookies to our faculty as well as hosts a whole week of fundraising for us here at Sampson. This year we have two times the sweetness: Teacher Appreciation, October 25th-29th, and to end our year, May 2nd-6th. So get ready to order some Half Baked cookies for your kids classrooms!
