Here is a fabulous, fabulous, fundraiser thought up by my creative principal. At Meet the Teacher day before school started, each parent received a flyer advertising our fundraiser:
It said that for $5.00 they could order a picture of their child with their teacher on their very first day, and that the picture would be in a special frame decorated by the child.
Then, on the first day, we set up a little sign on one of the bulletin boards:
And we took picture of each kid with their teacher in front of it. Then we had the kids decorate picture frames:
We used these ones from Oriental Trading:
The kids had a lot of fun gluing on all the puzzle pieces and it was great for practicing "A dot holds a lot!"
Our principal had all the pictures developed at Walgreens and they looked so adorable in the frames!
It's a priceless memory for the parents, and all the money goes right back to the kids via field trips, projects, parties, etc. A win-win!
