Step It Up for JMS!
Our biggest fundraiser of the year starts today and we need your help! We know that parents and students are busy, and that is why we want to make the fundraiser as EASY and SUCCESSFUL as possible. Our entire STEP IT UP fundraiser can be completed in TEN MINUTES or less -- Yes, really!
The most important thing you can do to support our school is to help your child complete the first night email campaign "Success Sheet" students brought home from the assembly on Friday, 9/16/16.
To get our fundraiser off to a great start, we are asking each and every family to REGISTER and SEND OUT AT LEAST 10 EMAILS on Friday, 9/16 to friends and family, enlisting their support. Don't forget to ADD YOURSELF so that you, too, can donate online! Don't forget to tell your friends and family to check your Spam folder, in the event the email ends up there.
All donations are processed via PayPal, so they are safe and secure, and the emails you send will only be used for this fundraiser (not saved for any other purpose).
While you have until the end of our fundraiser to raise money and qualify for the various prizes and events, this First Night Email Success Sheet will not only win your child some fun BONUS PRIZES, but will help us get off to an amazing start!
