Today we started a one-week blitz of a fundraiser, to raise funds for new student microscopes. We’ve partnered with New Leaf Greenhouse to offer a variety of vegetable and herb starts, annuals, perennials, planters and hanging baskets. Trillium previously participated in this spring fundraiser with New Leaf a number of years ago, and many families had great success with their plants.
Please help ensure the success of this fundraiser by encouraging your students to take home the cover letters and order forms found in your staff mailboxes. There should be 2-3 order forms per student, as each customer should submit a separate form; we hope to include neighbors, friends and extended family. Additional order forms are available in the lobby, and if you have unused forms they may be placed there, also.
I also encourage you to forward the attached PDFs of the cover letter and order form to families of students in your class; a personal note from you or your classroom liaison will carry more weight than a general announcement to the all-school email. Middle school and high school students will benefit most directly from the microscope purchases, so we hope these families will be active in promoting this fundraiser.
This is a short, one-week effort, with orders due next Monday, April 23. Completed order forms *with payment* can be placed in the silver Scrip box in the front lobby; checks should be made out to TFT, with “plant sale” written on the memo line. Plants will be available for pick-up Thursday, May 17 between 2:00 – 5:00 PM.
