Family Dinner Night. Tomorrow Night!


California Pizza Kitchen FUNdraising Event!!

On Tuesday, October 23, 2012, California Pizza Kitchen at Fashion Valley Mall from 11 a.m. - 10 p.m will be hosting our next Family Dinner Night. California Pizza Kitchen will donate  20% of the sales to Birney for each table that BRINGS IN THE FLYER!

Classroom Competition

There was a problem with tabulating the results of the classroom competition from our July FUNdraiser, so to make it up to us CPK is offering Pizza Parties to the top 2 classrooms. Just make sure each flyer has the Teacher's Name and Room Number on the back (families can list more than one teacher). The 2 classrooms with the most flyers will each receive a Free Pizza Party.

Stickers and Flyers

Extra flyers and Stickers will be distributed Tuesday morning. Please be sure to give a sticker to each student as they leave for the day to help encourage a great turnout! :)

Thanks so much!

School Fundraiser

Hi all,

Last week students brought home catalogs for our fall fundraiser. You have one more week (orders due Wednesday, October 24) to offer friends, co-workers and family the opportunity to help support our school by buying the quality items included in the catalog. All products ordered through the student will be delivered to the school and distributed at parent-teacher conferences. Checks should be made payable to Birney PTA.

Supporters can also order items online Be sure to include the student's name, school, city & state so your student receives credit for online orders. Online orders will be shipped directly to buyers.

This fundraiser is the PTA's main fundraiser of the year, and proceeds (40% on magazines and cookies, 50% on all other items) will help provide extra-curricular opportunities to help our children to connect with their education: field trips, educational assemblies, and family involvement events. As always, if catalog items are not your thing, tax-deductible cash donations are always welcome.

Thanks so much for supporting our kids, Birney and the Birney PTA!

Choose DonorsChoose

The Birney Kinder classes lost their tricycles when we lost our state-funded preschool this year. Ms. Touw (Rm. 23) has set up a DonorsChoose project to try to get new ones for all the Kinders to use. Help our Kinders feed their need for speed! Use promo code PUMPKIN to have your donation matched! (It worked for several of us today, but if that code doesn't work, do a quick search and find another Match Code!)
