PTA Fundraiser Kicks Off on Sept. 12th

Each fall, the Springman-Attea PTA holds ONE fundraiser to help raise monies for our middle schools.   The money from this single fundraiser helps provide our students with much needed items such as supplies, programs, cultural events and field trips. The PTA is once again partnering with Innisbrook and Helen Grace Chocolates for our fundraiser.  Up to 50% of every item sold will directly benefit our students!  All students will receive their Innisbrook Catalogue on Friday, September 12, 2014.  Thank you for supporting your child's participation in this important fundraiser for Springman!  While we have a significant goal for this fundraiser ($32,000), we have met or nearly met this goal every year for the past four years.  We hope for a fantastic response this year as the PTA is dedicated to turning around the profits directly to our students and teachers!  The Innisbrook fundraiser continues through October 3, 2014.

You can always go directly to www.innisbrook.com and purchase directly on-line by using Springman's Innisbrook Code:  #101434

The Top 3 Sellers in each class receive a $75, $50, and $25 gift card and the top-selling team receives a pizza party!  Stay tuned though, for a special incentive from the Springman Staff!
