FALL FUNDRAISER

The fall fundraiser has officially ended for the KidStuff coupon books, but we are still accepting direct donation and book payments. Thanks to all who have supported us to date! If you have not yet done so, please either send the $25 payment for the KidStuff coupon book or return the book if you do not wish to purchase by Wednesday, November 14th. Make checks payable to Cowlishaw PTA. Please consider purchasing the KidStuff coupon book or making a direct donation. We are 40% towards our goal and need your help to be able to support all the programs throughout the year! Please contact Kathy Holmes at katholmes@deloitte.comwith any questions and see attached flyer.


DINNER NIGHT OUT AT CHIPOTLE THIS TUESDAY!
Join us for a fundraiser to support our PTA - come in to Chipotle (near Meijer in Aurora) on Tuesday between 4pm and 8pm. Bring in the flyer that was sent home via backpack mail or tell the cashier you’re supporting Cowlishaw to make sure that 33% of the proceeds will be donated to us! We hope to see you there! This has the potential to bring in a great donation to fund our planned programs for this school year, so we are hoping for a great turnout!

DONUTS WITH DAD
