**sample message to share with family!**
Dear Mantua supporter,
We are running at Mantua Elementary this year to provide technology, curriculum, school improvements and staff development to our Mantua school and community. Please help us meet our goals! Donate at the link below to support us:
The Run for Rocky is Mantua PTA’s largest fundraiser of the year that seeks to generate funds that WILL be injected directly into the classroom THIS year.
Here are just a few ways that YOUR donations have made a difference:
-technology such as laptops, IPads, document cameras, projectors
-school enhancements (such as bathroom hand dryers!)
-Various curriculum materials (including Dreambox and Wixie)
-staff development and other teacher resources
And, of course, Fun PTA Programs and Events for the school community!
The Run for Rocky also promotes healthy habits, boosts school spirit and fosters community involvement!
But, wait, there's more!
RUN FOR ROCKY T-SHIRTS!
Every student, teacher and staff member will be getting a t-shirt! Teachers will show off their spirit in the t-shirts at the Pep Rally on October 25th. Students will receive their shirt the day of the race (November 1st)!
THANK YOU to our T-Shirt sponsors!

To say thank you to our teachers for helping us raise funds for the school, we will host a special “teachers-only” raffle. For every $200 that a classroom raises, the classroom teacher will get his/her name in the teacher raffle for two $150 gift cards from Amazon. Drawings for those prizes will be on GMM Monday, November 8th.
HELP US MEET THE CHALLENGE by sharing the Run for Rocky's donation link with friends and family (see above)! If we meet at least 50% of our goal as a school, a special surprise will happen at the end of the week!!!
