Gift Wrap Fundraiser

Last week the PTO kicked off its annual Innisbrook Gift Wrap fundraiser. Your child should have brought home catalogs and order forms. If your child would like to participate in the fundraiser, please encourage them to contact family members, friends and neighbors to view the catalog and make purchases. Families can order online or use the form in the packet. If your child sells 10 or more items, bring the “ticket” on the back of the kick off letter on designated days/times to receive a Hank the Hippo for their back pack. Also, there are instant prizes this year – parents will be informed if their child has won one automatically when they place their order online. Orders need to be turned in by October 7th. This is a great opportunity to stock up on holiday gifts and wrapping paper, bows, cards, etc. and help your school at the same time.

San Elijo Elementary PTO Needs Your Wine!


Image via Wikipedia

The annual Adult Gala event will take place on Friday, February 4th at Twin Oaks Golf Course.  At that event SEE PTO will have the 2nd Annual Wine Wall!  For those of you who might be unfamiliar with the Wine Wall, here’s the scoop:

Parents donate bottles of wine with a $10 to $15 value.  PTO obtains some premium wine bottles donated by wine connoisseurs and The Wine Loft in Carlsbad.  The PTO wraps the bottles so the labels are not seen and the premium bottles are mixed with others.  Parents can purchase the wine bottles for $15 each or 2 for $25 at the event (not to be consumed at the event).

Last year, 67 bottles were donated and the PTO made $855.  This year we hope to acquire 100 bottles!

SEE PTO is  looking for wine donations of $10 to $15 per bottle.  Even if you don’t plan to attend the event you can still donate wine! Bottles can be dropped off in the Community Room at any morning at drop off or in the afternoon at pick up from Monday, January 10th through Thursday, January 20th.

If you have any questions, or if you happen to be one of those wine connoisseurs or a wine distributor and would like to donate a premium bottle(s) please contact SEE PTO at sees_volunteer@yahoo.com.
