School Supplies Kits
Have you visited 1stdayschoolsupplies.com yet to purchase your child’s back to school kit? We are so happy to be partnering with them again this year! You can get all your school supplies hassle free from the comfort of your own home.

On top of that they are offering all the accessories we need including Vera Bradley, JanSport, and Under Armour backpacks, lunch boxes and water bottles! So this year avoid the “germy” experience of back to school shopping at retailers and shop online with confidence knowing you are getting the exact supplies your teacher requested.

Fundraising for Roosevelt PTA
There are two easy ways to begin fundraising for the PTA with no additional cost to you!

  1. Placing your Amazon orders through http://smile.amazon.com will automatically raise money for the Roosevelt PTA. Amazon donates 0.5% of the price of your eligible AmazonSmile purchases to the charitable organization of your choice. Just open AmazonSmile on your computer, (Sorry, the app doesn’t work!) search for “PTA Wisconsin Congress Roosevelt School,” and start shopping!
  2. You can still clip those box tops but many products no longer have clippable box tops. In these cases, start scanning your receipts! Head to https://www.boxtops4education.com/ Sign up for an account, download the app on your phone and easily scan your receipts to earn money for the PTA. You can designate a different class to receive the points each time you scan.
