Clough Pike Kids Care Club members are off to a busy start. We are participating in Trick or Treat for Unicef now through October 31st. We will have a bin in the cafeteria if students want to bring in loose change. Students will be collecting in their neighborhoods now through Halloween.
Next week we will be collecting canned goods for West Clermont's Stuff the Bus campaign. More information will be sent home by the end of this week.
This year we will continue collecting pop tabs for the Ronald McDonald House. We are in a competition with other local schools to collect the most pop tabs. Our pop tabs will be dropped off at a local collection center where they will be weighed. Total weights will be compared at the end of the year. Please be sure to save all your pop tabs and send them to school.
Our fundraising goal this year will be to help fund a playground for the Preschool classes at Clough. A few years ago we were told the equipment on the K-2 playground was not safe for use by the preschools kids (ages 3-5). Additionally, the play set will need to be fenced in given the needs of the kids using the area. Over the past few years, PTO has purchased several tricycles and a little tykes slide the teachers can bring out each day (and then take inside). We will be donating the funds from our penny war to the cost of new equipment. We are also thinking of other fundraising ideas to help raise enough so that this can be completed this year.
