Annual Campaign Kick Off
Mon, Sep 30 4:10pm

Hello Grattan families!

We are excited to officially kick off Grattan’s Annual Campaign today, our most important fundraising effort of the year, with a goal of raising $285,000. This Campaign will be up and running through January 2020. Over the next few months we're going to ask you to help support Grattan's amazing programs and initiatives in various ways, and as always, we're going to have a lot of fun along the way.

Today you'll find a packet in your kids' take-home folders with information on how to donate and match, a remittance envelope, and a backpack tag for your kids to show their Grattan pride. In a few weeks the Annual Campaign will launch Spirit Week, when your children will have fun with crazy hair and wardrobe choices. And you’ll get to kick back and get a little wild yourselves on Thursday, October 24, when we will all take over Finnegans Wake for a school-wide Parents' Night Out. Look for more details on that in upcoming issues of the Bee and in your inboxes and take-home folders.

There are three easy ways to donate during this Campaign:

● Write a check payable to the Grattan PTA, placed in the black PTA box behind Ms. Karen’s desk. Make
sure to add “Annual Campaign” in the memo field.
● Make a credit card payment through PayPal ( and please consider adding a little to cover credit card fees
● Automatic monthly donations through PayPal.

And of course, don’t forget to ask your company if they match! Hundreds do.

We know that together we can make this campaign an incredible success and keep Grattan strong over the next year and beyond. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us at
