Are you good at putting together puzzles?

We need your help!

We recently purchased a RubberMaid shed for the sports equipment the students use at recess. We need your help putting pavers down and building the shed.

If you’re interested in helping, fill out this simple form to let us know your name, contact information and availability.

All supplies will be provided for you. We just need a handful of hands to put it together.

 

These are the proposed dates to have parents on campus to build the shed. Please check all times during which you are available to help.

We are also collecting balls and other sports items the students use at recess. Our biggest need is a shelving unit to hold all of the equipment. The shed is 7’x7′ with a peak of 8.5′ (side height about 6.5′) Click the button below to be taken to a Sign Up Genius with details. Gently used equipment is great!

Let’s build something great together!

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.

Supply Drive

 

WE NEED YOUR HELP

Teachers are in need of replacement supplies for their classrooms.

We all know that the children must be eating the pencils with how often they disappear and it’s no different at school! Everything is consumed at a much faster speed than anyone thought possible.

It’s time to dig through the cupboards at home and send in those odds and ends supplies that you didn’t need for that school project anyway. I promise no teacher has turned down a partly used glue stick or opened container of Clorox Wipes!
Here is what is needed most:

  • Dry Erase Markers, both thin and thick
  • Reams of Paper
  • Glue Sticks
  • Pencils
  • Clorox Wipes
  • Crayons
  • Colored Pencils
  • Red Pens

To sweeten the deal, we will be running a competition. The class with the most items will win a cool treat!

Send your items in a bag labeled with the teacher’s name (if you have more than one kid, write all of the teachers’ names on the bag).  The items will be sent to the office to be counted and redistributed to the staff as needed throughout the rest of the year.

Your teacher may have a specific request for her classroom. Those items will not be tallied in the class count, and will stay in her room when donated.  Look for an email from her with specific items (not all teachers need specific things).

 

“Easiest way to give to school that I know of!”   

We Need Volunteers… We Need YOU!

Volunteer

You will be asked to sign in to your Scholastic account or register.

Oct. 20, 2017 – Oct. 27, 2017

 
It’s time to start planning our next Scholastic Book Fair and I would like to invite you to help our school pull off the best Book Fair ever!
Each year, sales from the Book Fair help fund the purchase of new books to help our students have a wide variety of books to choose from as they grow their love of reading.
Classes are still in session while the Book Fair is in the library and we need volunteers to be cashiers and to help children select books.
I’m building a team of enthusiastic and talented volunteers from our school community and could really use YOUR help. Please take a moment to view our sign-up sheet and consider volunteering to help out. Even an hour of your time would be valuable.
I hope you’ll join our team of volunteers!
