Here is a message from Meredith Sullivan, a 3rd grade teacher at Laurelhurst AND Laurelhurst parent!
“I am excited for Monday…it’s the Laurelhurst Direct Give Matching Day! I plan to give BIG. I’m so proud of Laurelhurst. It’s my pleasure to be a part of it as a teacher, parent, and neighbor. Be it our reading specialist, tutors, Bear Block program, or simply choosing the perfect book to echo or illustrate a societal issue, Laurelhurst’s dedicated teachers target their students’ needs and angle instruction directly to meet those needs. I appreciate how the Direct Give bypasses the typical fundraising gimmicks and gives DIRECTLY to the programs that support the student learning going on in this building. Since 1927 (!), Laurelhurst Elementary has been a symbol of academics, friendship, and community. We give to what we believe in, and we all believe in our children and community. Let’s support Laurelhurst, our children’s home away from home. Any amount helps. Now is the time to give!”
Speaking of matching – don’t forget to include your employer’s information if they will match donations. This makes a huge difference! More information can be found on the PTA website http://www.laurelhurstpta.com/direct-give
