The holidays are getting closer! As a special service to our families, the RME PTO is hosting a Holiday Gift Shop. Children will have the opportunity to pick out their own inexpensive, quality gifts for family and friends. 85% of the items available for children to purchase will be under $5.00. A Holiday Shop flyer and budget envelope will be sent home in your student’s folder this week!
A Holiday Shop PREVIEW will be held during school hours on Tuesday, Dec 3th, and Wednesday, Dec 4th. On these days the children will come with their class and walk through the Holiday Shop. They will have an opportunity to look and write down ideas.
The Holiday Shop will open for purchases on Wednesday night, Dec. 4th, from 5:30pm – 8:00pm, during RME Family Financial Night.
On Thursday Dec. 6 and Friday Dec. 7, during school hours, students who have brought money will have an opportunity to shop with their class or during recess. Holiday Shop money must be brought to school in the budget envelope provided. Gift Certificates may also be purchased with a credit card instead of bringing cash. https://kastlekreations.holidayshop.school/giftcert/
The PTO needs volunteers to make this big event a success! Volunteers will help children choose gifts and work within their budgets. Seeing the children’s delight in choosing special gifts makes this such a fun event. We’re looking for Holiday Helpers during the day and evening (including High School volunteers). Helpers during the school day must have CCPS volunteer training completed. If you can not volunteer your time but would still like to help we could use donations of sticker to/from tags. https://www.signupgenius.com/go/60B0C4CA8A82BA5F49-holiday3
Thank you for your support!

Last week your student should have brought home a sales packet for Yankee Candle. This is the BIGGEST fundraiser for PTO this year and we need your help in making it a success! Our goal is to raise $3000 for our school! Money raised will go toward fun activities for our students, field trips, assemblies, recess equipment, dinners for teachers on conference nights, and teacher appreciation week, just to name a few.
Paper order forms are due back to school on November 6. Checks should be made out to Robert Moton PTO. Online orders can be placed through January 8 via www.yankeecandlefundraising.com. Be sure to use our group number (999979426) and include your student’s name so he or she can earn prizes! Taxes do not need to be charged. Delivery requires 2-4 weeks, so make sure you allow enough time for delivery when ordering online for Christmas presents.
If you prefer not to participate in the fundraiser, donations can be made via the PayPal link below or by check made out to Robert Moton PTO.
Questions or comments should be directed to Rebekah Hanson, PTO Fundraising Chair, via the PTO email address: firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you for supporting our students and teachers!
We’re excited to announce that we have teamed up with Our Community Coupon Book to raise money to finance our programs and projects to help make our school better. We picked this as a fundraiser because when we saw the coupon book and recognized almost all the businesses the coupons are for, we knew it was different than others we’d seen in the past.
The Fun & Fit Factory
Starry Night Bakery
Jill’s Jams, Mixes, & More
Play It Again Sports
Blue Point Crab House
And many more!
