Fundraiser Open – Now through November 4th!

We are excited to launch our Fall 2020 Fundraiser here at LWJES!  We will once again be partnering with Crazy Good Popcorn for our fundraiser.  A variety of flavors of popcorn are being offered, along with chocolate barks, giant cookies, and ground coffee.  As we are in the mode of distance learning, we have updated our resources to be all available online.  We also will have a traditional flyer and collection envelope available at the school.

We know that fundraisers are important to supporting programs at our school, and we have prepared a video that shares information about the programs at school last year that were made possible by the generosity of our LWJES community participating in our fundraising program last year (watch that video below).  One great example of a program we were able to have because of fundraising was our author residency (assemblies, classroom activities, and family event) with Gary Hogg.  We understand that not all families will want to participate in our fundraiser or be able to participate in the fundraiser.  We appreciate any level of participation from our LWJES families!

We also have packets available at the school building for those who wish to share a brochure and take orders in-person.  Just stop by the school and pick up a packet located in the wire basket on the table by the front doors.   Be sure to follow all health and safety guidelines!

As a reminder, students should never sell door-to-door!  We encourage parents/guardians to share fundraiser information with family members, friends, and colleagues.

The fundraiser is open now through Wednesday, November 4, 2020.  If your family sells items using the paper brochure/ordering form with funds collected in the envelope, our school will collect those on November 4th and 5th.

If you have any questions after checking out our fundraising resources, please contact the school at (702) 799-5760 from 7:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

Thank you for your consideration and support,

LWJES Faculty
