JogaThon Banner

Jog-a-Thon – Donations were due this morning at 9:am! The final results will be shared at a school assembly on Wednesday, October 22nd at 2:45 PM. We are over 60% of the way towards our $25,000 goal with online donations. We hear that Principal Smith likes pies and we know Arco Iris students would love to watch her take a pie to the face!

Restaurant Night  – Mark your calendars for Friday, October 24th, 5:30 to 8:30pm for our first restaurant night of the school year at John’s Incredible Pizza. John’s Incredible Pizza will donate 15% of all purchases made (including gift cards purchased). Join us for good food and a good time with friends and help support your school at the same time.  John’s Incredible Pizza is located at 9180 SW Hall Blvd in Beaverton, close to Washington Square Mall. (Note: The attached flyer must be printed out and presented to the restaurant in order for Arco Iris to receive credit. ) Johns Incredible Fundraiser Flyer

Box Tops – Four of our classes have already reached their first boxtops class award and several others are very close. We have already collected over $120 in boxtops this year!  Please bring your current boxtops in by October 24th as we are planning to make a submission for a school check…and of course we want to keep moving the classes toward their goal. Reminder – put the student name, grade, and teacher in the bag or on the back of each ticket to count for awards.

New Parent Orientation – This is a special Q&A session for new parents and will be held on October 20th at 5:00 pm.

Intel Matching Gifts to Education/Volunteer Matching Grant – Intel has a program called ‘Matching Gifts to Education’ where you can donate to Arco Iris and get Intel Foundation to donate 50% of your donation to the school. They will donate up to $10k for the calendar year. Please visit the ‘Matching Gifts to Education’ site on the Intel’s website. There are many other companies in the area that participate in donation matching. Here is Nike’s info: http://www.oregoncf.org/nike#.VEBTuNYy6y0.twitter
