Eighth Grade Intro 3

I am impressed by their capacity to take on such a challenge and see it through to completion. These young people have experienced what I like to think of as an initiation process, requiring each of them to gain a deeper understanding of time management, accountability and follow through. The responsibility and maturity required to complete these projects, to me, illustrates their ability to achieve success in life. My hope for this class, is that they will use this ability to serve humanity in a positive and meaningful way.

Grocery Cards a Win-Win Fundraiser

Finally, a school fundraiser that costs you nothing… and you don’t have to bake either!

The Grocery Gift Card Fundraiser is as easy as doing the grocery shopping. Just stop by the school office anytime and purchase a gift card. Then, the next time you are at the checkout counter at any Hannaford’s or Shaw’s, just whip out the card and use it to pay for your groceries.

Your grocery gift card is just like cash. Dollar for dollar, what you pay for your gift card pays for your groceries (or dog food or shampoo or movie rental or…). There are no hidden fees.

And here’s the best part: Ashwood will earn approximately 5% on the weekly grocery expenditures of everyone who participates.

This fundraiser has the potential to be a huge success, earning thousands of dollars for our tuition assistance fund.

Gift cards will be sold in the school office in denominations of $50 and $100. Pay for them with cash or check. Buy as many as you like. There’s no expiration date. Come on into the office and get your gift cards, and get shopping today!
