Octoberama Todo List

2014 Octoberama LogoRemember Octoberama is coming up on October 18th (a week from Saturday)!
This Family Fun event is also a valuable fundraiser, helping fund the Mathews Technology Program, grants for teachers, library programs and much more.

PLEASE HELP OUT WITH THESE 5 ACTIONS by this coming Wednesday Oct. 15th:

1. Contribute to the Octoberama Family Quilt and win a class pizza party!
Contribute $25 and submit your uniquely decorated paper patch for display on our Octoberama Family Quilt. It’s a great way for your family to help support technology resources at Mathews, and for Mathews to recognize the many families that make up our large and wonderful school community. You can donate online here. 

2. Donate to your class basket BY OCTOBER 15th (WEDNoctoprize_smallESDAY)!
Check with your teacher or Homeroom parent for more details.

3. Bring in your old toys!
Clean out your closets and drop your gently used treasures in the toy bin outside the school office. Your tired toys = recycled prizes for game winners! And, the kids love them!

4. Sign up to bring in a cake or other sweet treat for the cake walk.
Email your homeroom parent for details or just bring a cake to the event!

5. Volunteer for one hour!
To pull off this fun and valuable event, we need each family to volunteer one hour to the cause. Please sign up or email the chairs if you can lend a hand!
