Panera Bread Restaurant Night

Dinner has a purpose! Join us on December 10th from 4-8pm at the Val Vista and Baseline location to avoid cooking and support Neely.

Panera Bread (or for those of you who’ve been in the valley for awhile, Paradise Bakery) specializes in healthy, tasty salads, sandwiches, soups, and bakery items. All purchases for the night (except gift cards) will count toward our 20% return. You can order ahead online with the code PRFUND or stop by and place a take-out order or dine in. 

Their menu is online. If you’ve seen the restaurant and were curious about their food, now is your chance to try it out and you get to raise money for our school!

This is an easy way to help Neely and have a healthy dinner out!

See you there!

Loyalty Items Fundraiser

Orders Due November 13

 

Print an Order Form

Every year, we see these flyers for Harkins, but maybe you’re not quite sure what these items are or why our school is offering them.

 

Harkins sells many things besides movie tickets and they partner with schools and non-profits to raise funds.

 

One of the most popular items is their refillable souvenir cup. Purchase the cup for $6.75 and you can get $2.00 refills (first one is even free!) for all of 2020. If you purchase their summer movie tickets, this is a great way to get a cheap drink to stay cool!

 

While you’re at the theater, you can redeem your Popcorn Voucher. Each punch is good for a medium popcorn. There are 36 punches on each card – an average of 3 visits a month! Limit of one punch per visit. It’s only $30. 

 

Lastly, if you can’t decide what to get that hard-to-shop-for person, we have $25 gift cards. Who doesn’t love movies? 

 

What does all this have to do with fundraising? Neely purchases these items at discount and sells them for regular price. You aren’t paying any more than you would in the theater, BUT Neely’s PTO gets some much needed cash to help our school continue to be awesome!

 

Orders are accepted by paper form only and must be turned in by November 13th. We will deliver the vouchers for your purchased items during the week of December 9th so you can have time to get them to your family and friends for the holidays.

The Prime Day event is an annual celebration held for Amazon’s birthday, and this year it is to mark its 22nd year of business. It was first started in 2015. It was so successful that Amazon decided to make it an annual event. More than 100,000 deals were featured for consumers last year. Amazon will run select deals for an entire week.

 

When is Amazon Prime Day 2019?

Amazon has revealed that Prime Day will be a 48-hour shopping event.

Prime Day Sale will run from midnight PT on Monday, July 15 through Tuesday, July 16, 2019.

The first two Prime Days lasted 24 hours, but in 2017 event lasted for 30 hours. Amazon upped the ante for 2018 with Prime Day scheduled to go for 36 hours but this year it’ll be open for 48 hours.

You Shop, We Earn!

Amazon has set up a way for non-profits to earn funds from their supporters’ purchases.

As a 501(c)3 organization, Neely’s PTO is one of the recipients of their generosity. Using Amazon Smile is so easy!

The one catch is that purchases MUST be made through smile.amazon.com.

From there, sign in as usual and select the organization you would like your funds to support. You only have to do this once.

Amazon Smile does NOT apply to purchases made with the app or from www.amazon.com.

You CAN shop on the app, fill your cart, and switch over to a browser to checkout at smile.amazon.com. All of your purchases are part of your regular purchase history and all normal return policies apply.

Neely T-Shirts ~ 2019-2020

In celebration of our 20th Anniversary, we’ve gone all out with special T-Shirts this year! 

Two Designs – One Unforgettable Year

Skip the line and get your shirts ordered now.

The Design Process

Our shirts were chosen from our school-wide T-Shirt Design Competition in May. We chose two of the many wonderful options and had them professionally edited and printed. 

The first design is a Castle filled with all of the most important elements of Neely. At the forefront of the design are the 6 Pillars of Character, in bold typeface on a rich blue background.

The second is the Neely Knight in silver ink on a dark grey background above the Neely Shield. Both shirts reflect the school’s 20th anniversary.

On Sale from now through July 10!

Shirt Details

Our shirts are a soft, pre-shrunk cotton blend. They are a gently fitted, longer cut, flattering to all body types. Professionally screen printed with long lasting ink that is sure to make it through all those trips through the washer. Shirts generally fit true to size.

Pricing

Both shirts are normally $15 but are on sale now for only $14. (Sizes 2XL and above are $2 extra in cost.) Only shirts  ordered online before July 10th will be sold at this price, so don’t wait! If a style sells out, we do not know when we will reach the printer minimums for back orders so we strongly advise ordering during the pre-sale period to ensure timely delivery!

How to Order

Check out the designs on this page then BUY YOUR SHIRTS online. They will be reserved for you to pick up at our Back to School Night. You can pay with a credit card through PayPal (no PayPal account needed), or with cash or a check at pick up. Checks should be made out to Neely PTO.

Student shirts are sized XS-XL and Adult shirts are available in XS-4XL. 

Check out our 2019-2020 PTO Membership which gives you awesome benefits and take a minute to explore everything our website offers, from Homework Helpers to Teacher Favorites . There is also information about volunteering, our events, and so much more.

(Some links will reflect last year’s information, but we are working on updates.)

 

Box Tops Are Changing

Fall 2019

While you can still turn in any Box Tops you have around the house (and please do!), packages will soon have a new label with new redemption instructions.

Instead of clipping the 10c tops off of packages, you’ll use the Box Tops app to scan in your receipt. You can do it as you leave the store and never think about sending in Box Tops again! Now when your kid tosses the box in the recycling bin, you don’t have to dig it out to claim that little rectangle! 

Check out the flyer below for all of the details

Thank you for your support!
