Dawg Walk 2018 Donation Wrap Up

Greetings, bulldog parents. The Dawg Walk fundraising period is wrapping up and once again our students and families have done an incredible job! Envelopes are due today (Monday, Sept. 10), but do not panic if your student did not hand in their envelope. Please have them bring it in tomorrow. We must order all prizes by Friday, so any envelopes that have not been received by then will not count toward Dawg Walk prizes.

If you’d like to completely forgo the envelope, please keep the donations your child has gathered and make a donation online on the Dawg Walk website for the amount they have raised instead. This makes counting much easier for us and hopefully makes things less complicated for you.

Please make sure you double check your student’s prize selections on their Dawg Walk page. You must first sign in to see and change this information. If the prize selections are blank, then please change them to the choices your child would like.

Finally, if you have any problems or questions about donations, don’t hesitate to email support@fundforus.com!

Important Dawg Walk Info

The Mahomet-Seymour PTO’s Dawg Walk fundraiser is in full swing and we wanted to share a few important messages about the fundraiser.

If you have not already, please register your students on the Dawg Walk website as soon as possible. Even if you don’t intend to collect any online donations, creating a donation page and selecting your child’s prize choices is extremely helpful to ensure that your child gets the prizes that they desire. Visit https://www.m-spto.com/dawgwalk to register your student.

You can check your student’s fundraising progress at any time by (1) signing into the Dawg Walk website and (2) viewing the bottom of your student’s donation page. Below your student’s donation form, there is a section for entering how much cash or check donations they’ve received, a listing of every online donation received with contact information of their donors, and your student’s registration information (teacher, prize choices, etc.). This material below the donation form is only visible when you are signed in.

If your child has changed their mind about prize choices, they can easily be changed at the bottom of their donation page (once you have signed in). These can be changed up until the end of the Dawg Walk on September 10th, so please make changes by then. If you do not see your child’s prize choices displayed, please enter them using that form. Some users prize choices were not captured during registration.

Finally, if you need any help with any part of the Dawg Walk website, please contact support@fundforus.com.

Thank you and happy fundraising!

Business Sponsorship Letter

Order School Supplies Now!

Hello!  The Mahomet Seymour Parent Teacher Organization hopes you are enjoying your summer so far!  As far away as it seems, the start of the 2018-2019 school year will be here before you know it.  As a PTO, we would like to make back to school shopping as easy as possible for Mahomet – Seymour families.

For this reason, we have already done all the school supply shopping for you!  For the second year in a row, we have partnered with 1st Day School Supplies.  We provided them with the school supply lists for grades K-5 so that they could make supply kits including all the school supplies your student(s) will need for the next school year.  Not only does this make your back to school supply shopping nonexistent, but it also guarantees that your student’s teacher will receive the exact supplies requested.  As an added bonus, the supply kits will be delivered to your student’s classroom before the first day of school making back to school easier on everyone.

Please follow this link to order your supply kit(s):

http://www.1stdayschoolsupplies.com

The deadline to order your school supply kit is June 30th, 2018.

If you have any questions regarding the kits or their delivery, please feel free to contact M-S PTO Vice President, Anna Webb, at akw279@gmail.com

Spring 2018 Book Fair

We had a great book fair this spring!

Thanks to the volunteers, shoppers and librarians for making it possible! All money raised goes straight back to the libraries.
