Selwyn PTA is excited to announce the return of last years Fall outreach project benefitting Communities in Schools. The “BOO” yard signs are back!
Last year was a huge success, and with your help, we are confident we can surpass Selwyn Elementary’s 2020 donation of $1,252. We have ordered more signs, and with that, we can make an even bigger impact this year; all to benefit, Communities In Schools of Charlotte (CIS.)
CIS-Charlotte-Mecklenburg is a school-based local nonprofit, dedicated to supporting and empowering local students to set them on the path to success. Their mission is to surround students with a community of support, empowering them to stay in school and achieve in life. CIS fuels the power of each student’s potential by connecting them to caring adults and community resources designed to help them succeed. From basic needs such as clothing and health screenings, to academic support, mentoring, and exposure to cultural and work-life experiences, CIS does whatever it takes to ensure that students – regardless of the challenges they face – have what they need to build on their strengths, experience success in school, and reach their greatest potential.
By purchasing a “BOO” yard sign, you will be supporting the services that CIS offers, and together with our neighbors and Selwyn community, our collective dollars can make a big impact. Not only will the purchase of “BOO” signs support CIS, it also provides a fun and spirited tradition for your family and neighbors to participate in; making our yards extra spooky for Halloween.
Surprise and Boo your friends and neighbors by purchasing these festive Halloween yard decorations by filling out the form below. We will be selling 5 signs for $45, or single signs for $10 each. Online sales will start September 22nd, and run through October 6th, or when supplies run out, so act fast!
CIS-Charlotte will receive 100% of the net proceeds from the sale of all yard signs.
The window is short for our “BOO” sign sales, ensuring that we have ample time to decorate our front yards with Halloween flair.
Here’s how it works:
- Purchase “BOO” Signs for your family and neighbors at www.selwynpta.org between September 22-October 6th.
- Early October you will receive an email to pick up your “BOO” signs, as well as small ziplock bags to place candy or treat of your choice*, from one of our neighborhood locations.
- Together with your family, “BOO“ your friends and neighbors by stealthily staking a “BOO” sign in their yard WITHOUT GETTING CAUGHT! Please remember to tape the provided ziplock bag containing treats of your choice, and the slip of paper containing information about Selwyn Elementary’s fundraising campaign, to the back of your “BOO” sign. The information provided on this slip of paper shares instructions on how they too, can join in on the spooky fun. “BOO” sign purchases are not limited to Selwyn families, so anyone and everyone can also join in on the fun by going to the link on the slip of paper to purchase more signs and “BOO” their friends and family!
- 100% of net proceeds will benefit Communities In Schools of Charlotte.
*Including a candy bag or other Halloween surprises is optional, and up to you.
