Kicking Off Two Great Fundraisers

On Monday our school will kick off two great opportunities to help support The Mac. The students viewed an assembly on Monday and were introduced to the Club’s Choice products and the process of participating in the fundraiser. Club’s Choice has been working with The Mac for quite some time and have been a great partner in helping us raise funds for the school. We appreciate the work of every family that participates in this fundraiser and the students have a chance to earn some great prizes as well.

The second opportunity to support the school is a fundraising opt out option we implemented last school year. After collaboration with the parent club and receiving input from parents in the past, last year we moved forward with an opportunity for families to make a 100% tax deductible donation to The Mac. This option was a huge hit last year and a large number of families participated in it. On Monday students will bring home a flyer that explains the process for making a tax deductible donation to the school. The communication that will be sent home Monday suggest a donation for individual students of $35.00 and a $50.00 donation for a family. We understand this option does not work for everyone, but we strive to provide options so that our families can support our school community.

Our goal is provide choices to our families on how they can support our school community. The money raised through our fundraising efforts are used on a wide variety items throughout the school. Our goal is to always support the learning of our children and creating an optimal school environment. We are confident The Mac is in an outstanding place for our children to grow both academically and socially. Thank you so much for the support and we look forward to being able to supply our students with the best education we can.


Have a great weekend!
