Dear Welby Parents!
Welcome to the 2020-21 PTA fundraiser!  Your student will have watched a fun kickoff video production, and will be bringing home a coordinating flyer today! (For those online, or any other parents who would love to watch the fun video, here is the link: Please read over the flyer, and sign the bottom - it just shows us you have received the information!  If your child brings the bottom portion back to school, they will receive a cool vinyl sticker for their water bottle/folder!
Because we are doing a direct ask fundraiser, we have set up a collection page for your child on the 99Pledges website!  No need to send in cash or check this year!  Here is how you can access their page to donate:
2.  At the top there is a search box that says "search for participant".  Type in the first name of your child and select from the dropdown with the correct grade and teacher name!
3.  DONATE there, directly on their page!
4.  Share your child's page right from there directly to family and friends.  You can also share it on your Face Book or Twitter page if you would like!
THAT'S IT!  Thank you so much for supporting our Welby PTA during these unprecedented times!  We are committed to using all funds donated to supporting students, parents, teachers and administration during a time when they need our support more than ever!  Feel free to contact us at if you have any questions.
Thanks SO MUCH!!
Polly Uffens
PTA President 2020-21
p.s. Online students - we have you covered!  You're grouped into an "Online class" for the fundraiser where you can also earn the class reward as a group!  In addition, if you bring your signed flyer into the office, there is a vinyl sticker there for your kids to choose also! Thanks for your support, and let us know if you have any questions!
