Help Valhalla earn money by shopping
with Scrip gift cards!
Only one more chance to order Scrip before summer is here,
and help Valhalla earn money by shopping with Scrip gift cards!
You can order Scrip two ways:
1) Fill out a form and return it to the office with a check made payable to VPFA. If you need a form, you can get one in the office or go to the Valhalla Website and download one from the After School Enrichment and Community Activities page.
2) Log onto www.ShopWithScrip.com and place your order online. On their website is a list of all the retailers that have Scrip available for purchase. Sign up for Presto Pay and you won't ever have to write a check again.
There is also a supply of cards in the office for sale anytime. Stop by before your next shopping trip to pick some up.
Any questions, please contact Laura Bastin at Laurambastin@yahoo.com or 925-989-1232.
Box Tops for Education
Congratulations to Mrs. McKinley's class! Their families contributed the most Box Tops for a class during the month of April, and will receive a “thank-you” treat for their efforts.
5th Graders Briana and Bridget contributed the most Box Tops…..321! Thank you to everyone for continuing to keep an eye out for the logo before recycling packages. Keep it up over the summer too, and help Valhalla raise even more money for next year.
Is there a parent who would be available next year to go to a classroom once a month to hand out a Box Top certificate to the student who turns in the most in a given month? It would only take a few minutes. Also, most months a class earns recognition for having the most kids who donated in that month. This parent would also make arrangements with the teacher to pass out a treat. If you can help in these ways, please contact me at email@example.com. Thank you.
Jennifer Jourdain, Box Tops Coordinator
