Earlier in the school year, the MSDPO agreed to sponsor the collection of Box Tops for Education and points for My Coke Rewards for Schools. This is a large undertaking for our small organization, but so far it has been very successful. At this point we have redeemed $55.00 in Box Tops and almost 3,000 points for My Coke Rewards. The proceeds raised from both of these efforts will be used to purchase much needed items for the school.
Along with the effort to collect Box Tops, we have also started a new monthly newsletter called "Box Tops Update". This new newsletter will provide everyone with an update on where we are with our Box Tops collection. It will also provide unique opportunities where everyone can help to earn eBox Tops.
Just this past weekend, we had our annual sales booth at the MSD Homecoming game. To say that we had a very successful sales effort would be an understatement. Thanks to all of you that visited our booth and purchased our new shirts and hoodies, and took advantage of our huge clearance sale. Through your generosity, we deposited almost $1,500. These are funds that will definitely benefit the students. We look forward to your continued support at Homecoming next year and the upcoming Winter Homecoming in January.
Currently, we are in the middle of a pre-order sales campaign for MSD pull-over jackets. Sales so far are good. However, if you have not had a chance to order your jacket, make sure you do so. Orders must be received by November 11th.
Finally, let me welcome all our new members. In the past two months we have added eight new members. MSDPO officers have heard that there has been some confusion on who could join the organization. We have been told that many believe you must be a parent to join. That is not true, all parents, MSD staff, alumni, friends, and supporters are welcome. With that said, if you would like to join, please do so. Also, tell a friend. Remember, all who support MSD, its students, and staff are welcome.
It definitely has been a busy year, but there is more to come. Among the upcoming activities are our annual sales effort at Winter Homecoming on January 21, and the Second Annual MSDPO 5K Fun Run and Walk on April 14. Be sure to mark your calendars for both of these events. We hope to see you there.
