Thanks so much for a wonderful school year. PTO wishes you a wonderful summer break! See you in August.

Konstella Update
Sometime in July Konstella will be reset for the new school year. All parents of 5th grade only students will be removed and all other parents will be asked to add your child(ren) to their new classrooms.

Papa John's Fundraiser
Thanks to everyone that ordered from Papa John's Pizza on 5/15. We raised $335. Mrs. Hartley's Kindergarten class had the most participation and received a pizza party today. Thanks so much for your support. Papa John's also provided lunch for the staff on Field Day.

EASY FUNDRAISING OPPORTUNITIES

King Soopers Reward Program
When you purchase a King Soopers gift card from Redstone PTO, we receive 5% of the money that is reloaded onto the gift cards. If you would like to participate in the program information went home in Friday folders last week. You can also visit the PTO website to print out the order form. Cards will be available for sale in the office starting in October. Get your card today to support Redstone as this is an easy way to earn money for the school. We have earned over $4,000 this school year through this easy gift card program.

Amazon Smile & Amazon via Konstella
When you shop on Amazon please consider shopping through Amazon Smile. A portion of all sales through Amazon Smile are donated to Redstone. Visit Amazon Smile here (or here and designate Redstone Elementary School PTO as your charity of choice). Better yet, shop via the link on Konstella and Redstone earns an additional 1% on all purchases. We have earned almost $150 this school year (not including purchases via Konstella).
