Short Pump Elementary PTA


Happy Valentine’s Day!
Stop by the information table tomorrow during orientation and open house to learn about joining Girl Scouts! Girls have fun and make friends as they participate in the Girl Scout Leadership Experience.

I’m reaching out to you in case you’re looking for a fundraising opportunity.

Our website platform - Fundit - allows organizations like elementary school PTAs to partner with local restaurants for fundraising needs. It’s a much more convenient version of a spirit night because once people buy a voucher from the restaurant, they can claim their food (eg: 1 large pizza) whenever they want. They can also buy 5 pizza vouchers, and redeem them throughout the year whenever they want! This allows for more sales and funds for you. We have a couple restaurants in the Short Pump area on our site that support local community groups.

If you’re interested please let me know, and I can setup a call to give you more details and/or set you up with a fundraiser in minutes! I'd love to help you all :)

Looking forward to hearing from you,

Evan Sachdeva
Fundit Co-Founder

Did you know the Reflections themes are actually submitted by students? In fact, two years ago the theme selected was from a student at Shady Grove Elementary.

This year, the PTA would like to encourage our students to submit their ideas for a theme by completing the online form by November 15.

The Reflections Committee will then select 5 themes to submit to the Virginia PTA who will vote on the top 5 themes which will be submitted to the National PTA. The National PTA will then choose a theme sometime in February for the 2020-2021 Reflections program. The winning student receives $100 from National PTA!
Fall & Winter Basketball! Spread the word...
Does anyone know when open house is scheduled for this year?
Don't forget to come to our first school grounds clean-up day of the year tomorrow morning! Come on by, even if only for half an hour, between 9 and 1.
