Parents and Families:
I have some information for a fundraiser we will be doing for the elementary. It is no risk and no obligation. It
is through schoolstore.net. It only takes about 5 minutes to participate, we earn money all year long, students
earn prizes, and it is easy and safe.
Schoolstore.com is an online shopping mall with over 400 merchants including Sears, Target, Office Depot,
Wal-Mart, Disney Store… When our family and friends make purchases from these companies, our school earns
money. Please help to spread the word of this, and I will place a parent information packet in each of your
mailboxes to hand out to students. This is a continuous fundraiser. It is along the lines of box tops, receipts, and
other continuous fundraisers. Ideally this would help pick up some of the slack of these fundraisers and help
our school out in this area. We will use this to fund various elementary activities and initiatives.
Let me know if you have questions and if you have not finished your Christmas shopping or if you do other
shopping online, check out schoolstore.net and use our school code of 4903.
Here is the link to show your kids the video when you hand out the flyers for schoolstore.com. The video is just
under 5 minutes long.
Please remember to help out our friends at Prairie Market as they help to provide educational equipment for our
school through the Register Tape Giving Foundation. Please place your receipts in the container at Prairie
Market as they help out our school. Also, a note went home with elementary students on Friday for a chance to
win a $500 grocery gift card plus an iPod shuffle if you turn in your receipt tapes by January 15th with the entry
form attached. Entry forms can be found at Prairie Market and also the school can provide them if needed.
Please call the office at 320-395-2521 with any questions. Thanks! ~ Mr. Schmidt

Homework Help has started again! Homework Help is open to anyone in grades K-12. It will take place from
3-4 p.m. on Monday-Thursday. We will try to have a teacher and at least one para there each night. Students
must stay from 3-4 p.m. if they are signed up or if they sign up on their own so the staff can focus on helping
