Hey Everyone! It’s Drive for Schools time of year again! Drive for Schools is one of our largest fundraisers to bring in much needed money for our school!
Drive for Schools is a county wide fundraiser sponsored by the Boardwalk and Toyota of Santa Cruz for the Santa Cruz County Schools. And has raised over 6 million dollars for our schools in the last 11 years!
What’s so amazing about this specific fundraiser is that the Boardwalk gives us the Drive for School tickets to sell to our community, families and friends near and far and OUR SCHOOL GETS TO KEEP ALL THE MONEY!
That’s right, Mar Vista gets to keep 100% of all tickets sold for our Mar Vista parents group to use for much needed supplies, art programs, music programs and each teacher will get back 10% of what their class sells this year to use directly on your children!
On Thursday your child will come home with 1-2 packs of tickets and an envelope. Each individual ticket will cost $5 or a pack of 6 for $25. You return the filled out stub and money to your child’s teacher with their name on the envelope. Please consider selling at least 2 books per student. This will help us reach our goal of $25,000. Additional tickets are always available in the office.
The end of the Drive for Schools Fundraiser is October 20 and all tickets must be returned by then to be submitted. The drawing will be held on October 29th and the grand prize is $25,000 or the choice of a new Outback or a new Prius.
Please read the flyer that comes home on Thursday to see all the amazing prizes and parties we offer to our school community to make this our best Drive for School fundraiser ever!!!! Our goal is $25,000 and we know we can do it!!!
If we make our goal Mr. D will shave his head for the kids!!
Now you can purchase tickets on-line too!!
