The 2020 Share Joys Fundraiser Needs your Help!

Attention to all who care about our Moline K-12 students as we do …

The 2020 Share Joys Fundraiser needs your help! This fundraiser allows us to clothe Moline District #40 K-12 students in need, just in time for the holidays. Unfortunately, because of the pandemic, many of the traditional aspects of this fundraiser (ex. the donut eating contest, cafeteria treats, NHS ‘elf’ treats, classroom activities etc.) will not be happening this year. Despite this, the need is greater than ever! So, we make direct appeal instead … please consider donating whatever you can spare to this link https://moline.revtrak.net/share-joys/

On behalf of our students, we thank you for your generosity!

MEA Social Committee Hosts Monthly Drawings for AR Meeting Attendees

Hello MEA!

MEA Social Committee will be drawing 5 names from every AR meeting. If you are present for the drawing, you will win a gift card, either from Teachers Pay Teachers or a local business. We thought this would be a nice incentive for AR meeting attendance, as well as a way to support our local businesses, since we won’t be having our quarterly socials this year! 🙂

Our winners for the first AR meeting are:

Christine Chuich
Ellen Garcia
Alina Schafman
Cheryl Rasche
Miranda Wells

Your TPT gift cards will be in the mail.

Congratulations and thank you so much for your involvement!

Tina Ferreri cferreri@molineschools.org
