Time to clean out those closets again! We were successful our first-time with Schoola that we decided to try it again this spring.

Remember how easy it was? If not, no worries, here’s what you need to do.

Stuff a bag with high-quality, well cared-for clothes
for toddlers, kids and women. The things
you’d feel best about giving a friend will raise the
most. Drop off bags during morning drop off or
outside the front office from April 6th until April 17th.

Spread the word to your friends and family
through our very own Schoola page: http://bit.
ly/AustinElemSchoola
. They can also donate
clothes to benefit our school!

Schoola will spiff and sell our clothes on their
online shop (www.schoola.com). For every $5
customers spend, they’ll send $2 back to
Austin Elementary! How good is that?!

BOOSTERTHON COLLECTION UPDATE
Published: Tue, Apr 7, 2015, 03:27PM CDT

Austin Parents,

Thank you for your help in making the Boosterthon Fun Run such a great experience in our 4th year! This could not have been a success so far without your help. Thank you for assisting your students in collecting their pledges.

We are currently at 85% collected. We need your help to reach 100% collected in order to support educational programs as well as indoor and outdoor learning environments at Austin!

If your student has any outstanding pledges, they went home with a letter indicating the outstanding amount. Please pay with cash, check written to Austin Elementary PTO, or online via funrun.com. Our next due date is tomorrow Wednesday, April 8th! Can you help us reach our overall goal of 100% collected?

Thank you again for your support!

Austin Elementary Administration, Austin PTO, and the Boosterthon Team

Published: Mon, Apr 6, 2015, 01:16PM CDT

Holding true to their promise – “If ALL 50 states have a pledge for Boosterthon, they agree to be duct-taped to the pillars outside the gym doors”.

At 2:15 p.m., Friday, April 3, Mr. Hilton and Mr. Girard, were duct-taped to the pillar outside the gym doors with the help from the two learners with the top pledges, Aren and Caroline, and the two teachers with the most class pledges, Mrs. Kirby and Mrs. Saxon!!

Only at Austin will you find the BEST principals, EVER! Thanks for being GREAT sports!!
