Harkins Summer Movie Fun

Print a Paper Form

 

Orders are filled on a first come, first serve basis, so we will be placing orders weekly. Use the button above to print a paper form. Forms were also given to the teachers to send home today. No online orders will be accepted. Make sure you clearly mark your first and second choices for both theater and day of week. Parent and child tickets are the same price. Tickets are $7 per person.

 

If you haven’t attended the Summer Movie Program at Harkins before, here’s a little more about it:

  • All movies start at 9:45am.
  • One movie is shown each week. The movies are shown in the order listed above.
  • Your ticket is valid for guaranteed entry at your theater on your day only. You can attend on a different day if there are spaces available when you show up to the theater (there is usually room).
  • You can give your tickets to someone else if you can’t attend one week.
  • All “rooms” in a theater are showing the same movie, so pick whichever room you like.
  • The showings are very kid friendly, so little kids are ok to bring. 
  • Everyone 3 years and older needs a ticket.  Seats are only guaranteed for ticket holders so children 2 and under may need to sit on a parent’s lap.
  • Parents must stay with kids.
  • No adults without children will be admitted, so Grandma must enter with your family if she wants to come. 
  • You can use your Harkins Loyalty Cups during the Summer Movie.

Box Tops Competition

It’s Box Top Clipping Time!

It’s similar to competitions we’ve done before. Read below for the details and rules.

The competition runs during the week of February 11-15, from 8:15-8:33 each morning. Look for the table with bins under the East Ramada. Make sure your Box Tops are in the bins before the first bell rings at 8:38 if you want them to be counted.

The winning grade will win a Valentine’s Day themed sweet treat. We will announce the results on Monday, after the competition ends.

The Fine Print

  • Each valid Box Top will count as 1 point.
  • Neatly trimmed, valid Box Tops will count as 5 points per Box Top.
    • A valid Box Top is one that has not expired and shows the brand code in the corner. Box Tops that are not valid will not be counted.
    • Neatly trimmed is defined as a Box Top that is cut within a quarter-inch of the dotted line and is not “torn” on more than one edge.
  • To earn points, place your Box Tops in the bin for your grade. That’s it!

Remember, if they are NEATLY TRIMMED,

they are worth 5 points each!

Now, go scour the house for Box Tops to bring in.

You Shop, We Earn!

Amazon Smile

 

From now until November 2nd, Amazon’s usual 0.5% contribution is being multiplied to 

5% of eligible purchases!

Using Amazon Smile is so easy! The one catch is that purchases MUST be made through  smile.amazon.com, not the app or amazon.com.

Don’t worry. We’ve laid out the simple process of using smile.amazon.com instead of the app right here:

 

  

Here’s how to do it:

Do everything like you normally do on your phone, computer, whatever, including adding items to your cart. DO NOT CHECKOUT!!

On your phone or tablet, open Safari or Chrome, and go to smile.amazon.com. On your computer, make sure the web address is smile.amazon.com.

When you do, you will be prompted to sign in an choose a charity. Pick us – Neely Elementary School Parent Teacher Organization (aka Neely PTO). You will only have to do this the first time you use Amazon Smile.

When you’re done with that, click on your cart. Amazon will magically display everything you added from whatever you were using before. (It’s not magic, it’s complex computer code, but it seems like magic.)

NOW CHECKOUT! You will get a happy message saying Thanks for Supporting Neely! and you’ll get that smile on your face that Amazon promised in their name because your kids get something to help their school for FREE!

Everything you love about Amazon works exactly like it always has, but our school and your kids benefit. 

So, try it out. Get a little early holiday shopping done and help us earn a whopping 5% of your purchase!

Chipotle @ Dana Park

Tuesday,  Nov. 13th 5-9pm

3440 E. Baseline Rd. #104 Mesa

Dine in or Take out, you pick! 

(Orders must be placed in store, not online.)

If you’ve been around Neely for awhile, you know how awesome our Restaurant Nights are! A ton of people show up, there are kids darting around to say hi to friends all night, and it is the EASIEST money our school makes! Our Chipotle night was our most successful restaurant night last year. Let’s see if we can beat it this year! Details are in the image below.

We Need Your Help!

HOW TO HELP

  • Volunteer to help set up the drop off zone, help Neely families drop off donations, sort and re-box or bag items as needed, help to load the bins to be weighed and transported to Sunshine Acres.
  • If you aren’t able to work a full hour time slot but have a half hour, let us know so we can team you up with someone to fill the slot.
  • Please dress for the weather and in comfortable clothes and shoes. We will be in the landscape (dirt, rocks) and street (on and off the curb).
  • If you have time to volunteer and assist with this fundraiser on collection day (we especially could use a couple of strong parents while loading bins at the end of the day). Sign up here or call Susan Vail at 480-280-9918

Rule to remember:  If it hasn’t been used or worn in 3 years, it probably won’t ever be.

  • Bring your clothing items in plastic bags and bring in as many bags as you can.
  • Please place books and household items in boxes.
  • All donations go to Sunshine Acres Children’s Home!

 

Paper Drive, too!

Don’t carry it in – we will unload for you!

We will take your reams of paper and your cash to buy reams of paper right at the curb! No more loading up backpacks or hauling it into the office! Paper can also be donated in the office Monday-Wednesday.

3 Ways to Increase Donations for Our Clothing & Household Item Drive

Remember:  The Neely family that brings in the greatest weight gets a $25 check from Sunshine Acres.

  1. Ask your neighbors, friends and family to clean out their households.
  2. Stop at garage/yard sales in your neighborhood.  Let them know about our school fundraiser.  Offer to come back when their sale is over and take any items that we can accept.  Let them know you can provide them with a tax donation letter just like Goodwill can AND that all items will be going to help our school and Sunshine Acres Children’s Home.
  3. Watch Craigslist garage/yard sales, rummage and church/other organization sales.  They usually post when the sale is over.  Many post…”what’s left is at the curb, take what you want.”  You may offer them a tax donation letter as well and let them know that the donations help both our school and Sunshine Acres Children’s Home.

Clothing (all types & sizes)

All clothing accessories including Shoes, Purses, Backpacks, Belts, Linens, Bedding, Curtains, Pillows, Towels, Hats, Fabric, Sheets, Blankets, Duffel Bags, Sports Bags, Luggage, Socks, cloth/fabric and Comforters.

Miscellaneous:

NOTE: furniture, TVs, computers/printers, full size appliances or other large household items – they will take them but we don’t make money on them!

 

Loyalty Items Fundraiser

Orders Due November 2

 

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 $6.50 and you can get $1.50 refills (first one is even free!) all year. 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. Each gift card will also come with a coupon for a free medium popcorn

 

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 2nd. We will deliver the vouchers for your purchased items by December 7th so you can have time to get them to your family and friends for the holidays.
