Steam Engine Fundraiser starting October 26th!
Cherry Drive Families,
As you all know by now, this school year has been filled with challenges and obstacles unlike any other. Everyone has done a tremendous job juggling work, education, extracurricular activities, and family time. So, for that I applaud you! We are all in this together, and together we can overcome any challenges or obstacles that lie ahead.
We have partnered with Power of Purpose again this year to help our school raise some much-needed funds this fall. We will be doing STEAM Engine, a 100% virtual fundraiser with the same fun and excitement but with an added bonus. Cherry Drive will be receiving a shopping spree to purchase Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math supplies from Thames and Kosmos. This is in lieu of the Day of Awesomeness that is not possible this year. The fundraiser will begin Monday October 26th. Please help support our children, teachers, and school by participating and bringing back some fun, excitement, and joy in our students lives! Your children will again have the opportunity to earn amazing prizes just for participating, and the money raised will help our school buy school supplies, apps, educational subscription renewals, technology, COVID safety supplies and much more!
Our fundraiser kick off will be on Monday from 2:15:-2:45pm. This kick off is virtual via Zoom. Remote students should log on to this zoom meeting to watch the virtual assembly. Students who are in person will watch as a whole class.

Fundraising packets with all the information will be sent home with students on Monday so please be on the lookout for these. Remote families, you can access these packets on our website on our fundraising featured news story starting on Monday. We will also email the fundraising packet to you on Monday so you have them that way as well.
Monday night, we are asking that parents and students set up their accounts and try to out at least 10 emails to friends and family asking them to help our school! Instructions on how to do this are in your fundraising packet. Your steam engine account already has a drafted email ready for you. All you have to do is enter email addresses or phone numbers. If you can do more than 10, that's even better! People will then be able to click on the link and donate to our school via credit or debit card. You are also allowed to collect cash and check donations if you wish. Just turn those into the main office along with the cash/check donation sheet in your packet and we will add it to your online donations!
On Monday night, Ii you send at least 10 emails or texts, you bring in your golden ticket (found in your packet) on Tuesday and be entered to win some awesome prizes such as an iPad of your very own, a mini fridge filled with cash, and other prizes! You have two weeks to send emails to raise donations and win various prizes, but the first night is an added incentive to get a lot of participation and to win the golden ticket prizes!!
If you are a remote learner, don't worry! Ms. Courtney gets a report sent to her with all of the student's names who have sent 10+ emails or texts, so you don't physically have to turn in your Golden Ticket to get entered to win the prizes, you will automatically be entered from her reports!
Thanks in advance for your continued support! This fundraiser is very important to our school and allows us to give our kids the best educational experiences possible. We greatly appreciate your partnership.
