Castaic Elementary PTA 

Here we grow!

Fall Membership Drive

Thank you to everyone who joined our PTA during our Membership Drive.  We appreciate your support for our school.  Congratulations to Mrs. Stillson's class who had the highest percentage of member sign-ups.  Her class will receive a pizza party!  If you missed out, you can still join by clicking on the link at the right.

Ralphs Community Rewards Contest

One of the easiest ways to raise money for Castaic Elementary School is to participate in the Community Contributions program offered by Ralphs Market. If you enroll your Ralphs Rewards Card with the program, at no cost to you, part of each purchase you make at Ralphs using that card will be donated to the school.

In lieu of a Fall Fundraiser, the CES PTA is encouraging everyone to help our school benefit from this donation program. Last year our school only had 25 families enrolled, which brought in a donation amount of approximately $471 last quarter. If we could reach 250 families enrolled in the program then that would potentially bring in a donation amount of $4700 per quarter which is more than $18,000 per year!!

Flyers were sent home this week with the scan bar that is needed to link this program to your Ralphs Card.  If you did not receive one, there are extra copies available at the school office. 

To register your card:
1. Take the scan bar letter and give it to the cashier when you check out.
2. You only need to do it once and it will link your Ralphs Card to Castaic Elementary for the rest of the year.
3. The scan bar letter makes it easy for friends and family to register their Ralphs Card for our school too!  The scan bar flyers can be reused or you can pick up additional copies at the office.

Please note:
If you signed up last year, you will need to sign up
again as Ralphs does not renew it automatically. 
Last year's program ended on August 31, 2014.

Participating in this program will NOT effect your fuel points or any other benefits of your Ralphs Rewards Card.

You will know that your registration is successful when you hear the audible beep and see the words "1 @ LOYALTY DIV" on your receipt (Castaic Elementary will NOT appear on your receipt).  Please cut off the portion of your receipt with the words, “1 @ LOYALTY DIV”, return it to your student’s teacher in the envelope (attached to the flyer) by Friday, October 3, 2014, and your child will be entered into a raffle drawing with a chance to win one of two SIDEWINDER SCOOTERS!!!

For every additional person that you get to register their Ralph’s Rewards Cards with the attached scan bar letter, (including grandparents, aunts, uncles, neighbors, etc.) you may enclose those receipts in the envelope as well and additional raffle tickets for your child will be entered into the drawing.  Also, the class closest to 100% participation will win a party!

PTA Reflections Art Program

The Reflections Arts Recognition Program is a national arts recognition and achievement program for students.  It provides an excellent opportunity for students to be creative, get inspired and express themselves through art. This year's theme is "The world would be a better place if ..." 

There are six different categories for submission: literature, visual arts, photography, film production, music composition and dance choreography.  Winning entries will move on to the next level of competition with the National PTA being the final level.

To enter, students must complete this entry form and submit with their artwork on Thursday, October 30.  Artwork will be collected at the front of school during drop-off from 7:30-8:00 am.  Please read these rules before creating your artwork.  If you have any questions, please contact our Reflections Coordinator, Tiffany, at reflections@castaicelementarypta.org

We will be having our Reflections Gala on Thursday, November 13 at 7:00 pm in the MPR.  All of the artwork submissions will be on display and winners will be announced that night.

 

Menchie's Frozen Yogurt Fundraiser

Menchie's Frozen Yogurt is back this fall!  We will be selling it after school each Tuesday, by the YMCA gate, through the end of September.  We will have a variety of flavors and toppings available each week.  Yogurts are $4 each and $1 from each sale is donated back to our PTA.  If your student is buying yogurt and you normally pick them up in the drive-thru, please remember to come at 2:50 or walk in to pick them up.  Thank you for your support!
