Mt. Erie PTA Spring Fundraiser

Mt. Erie PTA Spring Fundraiser
This year the Mt. Erie PTA will be coordinating a Spring Move-a-Thon!  
We are really excited for this fundraiser.   We are asking that your child participate in a 30 minute moving 
activity such as walking, running, riding their bike, dancing, playing a sport, etc at home. 
We will also be having a group Move-a-Thon April 18th for those that can make it! 
Your children will be sent home with an envelope and further instructions soon.
The kids will ask family and friends to 
pledge their activity with a donation to help support the Mt. Erie PTA.  
We use these funds to give back to the kids.
The PTA is looking for volunteers to help on Saturday April 18th at Mt. Erie Elementary and with various other tasks leading up to the event!
The Move-a-Thon will run from 9-12pm so if anyone can come early or
stay late please email me.
Thank you,
Shannon Conley

Spring Cruise Fundraiser

Many thanks to all the Mt. Erie families who came out to support the PTA at our Spring Cruise Fundraiser! We raised $2,225. On Saturday, June 2nd, 89 people went out on the Island Explorer 3 and circumnavigated our beautiful Fidalgo Island. We saw lots of wildlife and learned some new facts about our island home. Special thanks to Shane and Jenn Aggergaard of Island Adventures for donating 100% of the profits to the Mt. Erie PTA.
