Let them eat… Chipotle!

Don’t forget to grab dinner this Thursday at Chipotle to support Walt Disney Student Council! Here are all the details:

  • Make dinner a selfless act by joining us for a fundraiser to support Walt Disney Elementary School.
  • Come in to the Chipotle at 5545 North Main Street in Mishawaka on Thursday, December 15th between 4:00pm and 8:00pm.
  • Bring in this flyer, show it on your smartphone or tell the cashier you’re supporting the cause to make sure that 50% of the proceeds will be donated to Walt Disney Elementary School.

See you there!

SMILE you’re shopping

I’ll admit it. I hate standing in long lines during the holidays. I try to be a good sport and smile, chat with strangers, you know—have some holiday spirit. But, my inner Grinch really starts to complain. Then, my feet start to hurt.  Why can’t they hire a few more people for December? Was it really a SURPRISE when sales picked up right before Christmas?!

To be fair…. I worked in retail for years, and I know exactly how exhausting it is to be behind a register at this time of year.

So, I decided I wouldn’t do it any more. I simply would not let my inner Grinch see the light of day. He would be banished by way of Amazon Smile.  And why not? I can get what I need, have it shipped to my door in intriguing Amazon boxes, as well as give money directly to Walt Disney PTO.

Perhaps that’s something you should be sAmazon Smilemiling about this holiday season?

There’s no catch and it’s super easy. Just go to smile.amazon.com and select Walt Disney PTO as the organization you would like Amazon’s charitable giving to be donated to on your behalf. Then, make sure anything you purchase is through smile.amazon and not amazon.com (the prices and merchandise are exactly the same as far as I can tell). Then, pat yourself on the back for A. being awesome and B. giving money to a good cause that will directly benefit your munchkins.

The Grinch can take a hike this year—and I can spend my extra time baking a real gingerbread house and then being forced to eat it because the roof mysteriously caved in.  Darn.

Muffins with Mom

muffinThis Wednesday & Thursday, the Walt Disney PTO will be hosting a special time of appreciation for the hard working moms of Walt Disney Students!

Whether it’s as simple as driving your little one to school or as complex as logging hours of volunteer work at Walt Disney, we see and appreciate all our parents do.  Moms hold a special place in their child’s heart and are often called the “glue” that holds a family together.  And yes, we couldn’t agree more.

mamaNot a mom, but still the glue of a little one’s world?

We celebrate you as well and all you do for your Walt Disney student. Aunts, Grandmas, or other guardians of Walt Disney students are invited. (And don’t worry Dads, we appreciate you too and have a celebration in your honor coming up.)

Please bring your child with you and join us for complimentary muffins, coffee, and juice from 7:30 to 8:15 in the Walt Disney Elementary cafeteria.  Children K – 2 are invited Wednesday, December 7th, and children grades 3 – 5 on Thursday, December 8th. It’ll be a wonderful time to spend with your child as well as to get to know some other important people in their life.

If you haven’t already RSVP’d, please return the invitation that was sent home in your child’s folder last week, or email us right away at waltdisneypto99@gmail.com. See you there!
