Urbana Middle School Parent Teacher Student Association
Welcome to the start of a brand new school year. We have a lot of exciting events and initiatives we are working on this year and we look forward to the support of our community in helping achieve our goals!
PTSA offers many ways for you to stay up to date and informed:
We are on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/pages/Urbana-Middle-School-PTSA/855339984563087, Twitter at https://twitter.com/ums_ptsa, and we are also always available via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
One of our big initiatives this year is boosting membership in the Parent Teacher Student Association. We encourage all parents, students, and teachers to become members regardless of their ability to volunteer.
Important Upcoming PTSA events:
- Texas Roadhouse Night
- Bingo Night
- Holiday Gift Wrapping
- Sweetheart Dance
- Flower Sale
Easy ways to fundraise for the PTSA:
Even if you don’t have time to come to meetings or volunteer for an event, there are so many ways to help!
We collect Box Tops for Education that you find on many products in the grocery store. Each label is worth 10 cents for the school, so keep sending them in! For more information, visit http://www.boxtops4education.com/.
We collect Coke Rewards. Every point is a penny for the school. So, sign up for your own account at http://www.mycokerewards.com/content/home.html or send in your caps and codes.
If you shop at Schnucks, Meijer, or Target, they all have customer cards that will donate a percentage of your purchase back to our school. Cards are free and available at the service desks of each store. They cost nothing and will not affect you in any way–except just by shopping for your family, you are also giving back to the school. Invite your neighbors, friends, and family to sign up, too!
For Schnucks, visit http://www.escrip.com/merchants/identity/schnucks/index.jsp.
For Meijer, visit http://www.meijer.com/rewards.
For Target, visit http://www.target.com/redcard/benefits-target-rewards. Not only will you be donating 1% of your purchase to the school but you will also get 5% off your total purchases. It’s a win/win!
