Entertainment Book Fundraiser for Stout Middle School

Dear Stout Falcons and Parents:

Your child was sent home with an entertainment book Yesterday. If you did not receive one please email The PTA President, Nicole Barakat at  ourfuture09@aol.com and she will get one to them. This is a big fundraiser for us. We earn 50% profit. There are also some really great prizes for the kids and our teachers too!

Please help us raise even more funds by joining the online fundraiser for Entertainment Book Fundraiser for Stout Middle School. It is simple and fun to set up your own personal fundraising page. Then, you can reach out to your supporters through email and social media and so they can purchase directly from your page, while you get credit! If you have no one to sell to locally, then sell to family out of state! Their book will be delivered with coupons for their area!

Click this link https://www.entertainmentbook.com.au/fundraisers to get started.

The SOONER you join, the MORE you can sell!

Thank you so much for your support and participation. $15 from each book sold goes to benefit our students and teachers.

Your Stout PTA.

Box Tops for Education Program First Big Collection: October 20th

Dear parents and students!!

Stout is participating in the Box Tops for Education Program!! Please save those box tops and send them in with your child.

October 20th will be our first big collection due date.  Please put your child’s name, grade and 1st hour teacher on the baggie or collection sheet. 

The top 3 students each month will win a prize!

Look out for bonus box tops while shopping. This is a painless way to help raise money for your school! You can find box tops on most of the items you already purchase. Ask family and friends to save their box tops. Each one is worth 10 cents. They can really add up quickly!

Box Tops now has an app that you can earn more box tops. It is called The Box Tops Bonus app.

Look for our collection box at open house. If every student brings in just 25 box tops we can earn $2150.00 for our school!! Imagine if we could do that every month through the school year!!!

Looking forward to a great year! Your Stout PTA

Students’ Corner

 

Stout Middle School student, Marya Abdullah sent this quote to the Students’ Corner:

“Live as if you were to die tomorrow, learn as if you were to live forever!”

The proverb is a humorous adaptation of an Arabic proverb that says, “live as if you were to die tomorrow, and work as if you were to live forever!”

I guess studying is work. Only, you get paid by Report Cards!
