Fundraising within schools can often be a touchy subject. While it would be wonderful to live in a time where all school events, supplies, activities and trips could be funded; we do not live in that time. Our reality right now is that our kids are in the system and if we want them to have as good an experience as possible, some fundraising is the reality.
The PAC goal is to support creating a positive, healthy community at EJSMS. As much as possible, fundraising will be done through family events such as movie nights and family dances. There are also some traditional and passive fundraisers that can easily earn a great deal of additional funding.
THRIFTY FOODS SMILE CARDS FUNDRAISING PROGRAM-If you do not already have a Smile Card, please pick one in the main office or you can use your previous card. Take your Smile Card with you to Thrifty Foods when you go shopping. Ask the cashier to load any amount you wish onto the card before paying for your groceries.
