Ways and Means 2015-2016

Ways and Means Welcome

Ways and Means Welcome
Welcome aboard from your Ways and Means co-chairs! First, we want to quickly introduce you to our fundraising vision for the 2015-2016 school year.

Our goals:
We’re aiming for 3-4 community-wide fundraising events. We feel it is important that our events
impact the greater community in a positive way. We also understand that the higher our profile
in the community is, the more money we raise. We need to raise at least $5,000 by the end of the
school year, equaling roughly $100 per family student.

Communication to our membership:
We aim to communicate the details of each fundraising event clearly and with as much advance
notice as possible so that you can do your part: contribute when you can, and publicize our
fundraisers to the greater community. We’re in this together! We have a dedicated Ways and Means bulletin board at the preschool. It is located outside the 3s and 4s classroom. You will be able to access order forms, information about upcoming fundraisers and view the fundraising thermometer tracking our progress. There will also be a dedicated Ways and Means mailbox in the 3s and 4s mailroom where you will leave completed order forms.

Over the past weeks we’ve gotten some great fundraiser suggestions from members. Please let us
know if you have any ideas or, as the year progresses, suggestions for how we can improve. We’re
so excited to get started and to collaborate with you to reach our fundraising goals!

Fall Cheesecake Orders

It’s delicious. It’s easy. It starts October 1st. The cheesecakes are from the Cheesecake Shoppe in
metro Detroit. They were voted #1 by the Detroit News in 2014. These cheesecakes are all
natural and it’s a great company that does tons of school fundraising!

Order forms will be available from October 1st. You will have three weeks
to get the word out (and to get your order forms in). Order forms will be available starting at the General Membership meeting (GMM) on October 1st. Forms will also be at the preschool on the Ways and Means bulletin board. We will have cheesecake samples at the GMM so that you can taste what you’re ordering.

Please note:
• Completed order forms can be dropped off in the Ways and Means mailbox.
• The cheesecakes will be delivered the week before Thanksgiving.
• The cheesecakes can be frozen for up to two months and thaw very well.
• The preschool makes a $5 profit on each cheesecake sold. That really adds up!
Thanks again and see you soon–please don’t hesitate to contact us!
