Charleston Wrap Fundraiser Charleston Wrap fundraising orders were due on Monday. Please have your child turn his/her order form in as soon as possible. Checks should be made payable to: Bryant/Pattengill PTO (do not collect sales tax). Orders will be delivered to Bryant and Pattengill in November. Last year this Charleston Wrap brought in over $5000 for our schools! This is a LARGE part of our PTO budget, which goes back to our kids, by funding events such as school assemblies and field trips for all our students. Contact Anne Berens with any questions: berensfam@gmail.com, 395-3020 (cell). Thank you for supporting our schools!


Movie Night is Coming!

Movie night will be on Friday, October 17 from 5:30 – 8:00 pm. Please note: A parent or legal guardian (age 18 or older) must stay with the student; kids cannot be dropped off. Any child showing up without a parent or legal guardian will be turned away. This is a FREE event! Pizza, popcorn beverages and other snacks will be available for purchase. All profits go towards enrichment of the students. Please see attached flyer for more information. If you have any questions or would like to volunteer for this event, please contact Kathy Owens at kmann@umich.edu.

Attention Target Shoppers!

Each year Bryant/Pattengill families raise money for our schools simply by shopping at local retail stores and purchasing the things they normally would buy. Here are instructions on how you, too, can help raise money for Bryant/Pattengill by shopping at Target. To participate in Target’s Take Charge of Education program, you first must obtain a Target REDcard (if you do not already have one) by applying at the customer service desk at your local Target store or at http://www.Target.com/REDcard. You have a choice of obtaining the Target Credit Card, the Target Debit Card or the Target Visa Credit Card. You then must link your Target REDcard to Bryant/Pattengill PTO by going to http://www.Target.com/TCOE or calling 1-800-316-6142 and designating Pattengill Elementary(School ID: 60606) as your school of choice. Use your Target REDcard at checkout on each shopping trip to Target (and elsewhere if you have a Target Visa Credit Card). Bryant/Pattengill PTO earns 1% on each Target purchase made by Target Credit Card, Target Debit Card or Target Visa Credit Card and 0.5% on each purchase made by Target Visa Credit Card everywhere else. As an added bonus, you personally save 5% on all Target purchases when using the Target REDcard. Everybody wins! Even if you shop at Target infrequently, please consider signing up to participate in this education fundraising program; small amounts add up! If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the Bryant/Pattengill Grocery Scrip Coordinator, Alicia Davis, at alicia972@hotmail.com. Thanks for your participation!
