School in the Fall

We would like to share with families and the public, Monroe School District expects to fully reopen schools to full-day, five-day, in-person learning this fall. We maintain those expectations today in light of the Oregon Department of Education announcement of the Resiliency Framework for the 2021-2022 school year.

There are always many details to opening school in the fall, and this year those details will include things like COVID-19 safety measures. We of course will continue to partner with public health officials and plan to keep families updated as we finalize those details over the summer.

What a great way to get our students physically active and give them an opportunity to take ownership in raising money for their school. This is our largest and primary fundraiser of the year. Packets will be going out this week. Check out the flyer below to see the awesome prizes students can earn this year.

MGS PTG has partnered with Benefit as a free and easy fundraising solution!

Benefit is a free iPhone and Android app that allows you to shop at places like Safeway, Target, Starbucks, Amazon, Walmart and many more, while giving up to 20% of every transactions back to our organization. Just shop like you normally do. When it comes time to checkout, instead of pulling out your credit card, pull out the Benefit app and purchase a digital gift card that you redeem instantly.

For instance, buy $200 worth of back to school clothing at Gap, and $16 (8%) goes back to your organization. It doesn’t cost you a dime beyond what you were already going to spend. It’s raising funds without fundraising!

Download the app and select Monroe Grade School Parent Teacher Group as your chosen beneficiary to start giving today.

For more information go to www.benefit-mobile.com. Feel free to forward this email to family and friends. The more people who participate, the more funds we will raise.

P.S. Linking your bank account earns more than using your your debit card.
