Red Ribbon Reading Sponsorships Opportunities

Are you interested in having your company logo on the back of every Selwyn student, on brochures and flyers sent home to all Selwyn families, as well as on our school’s great new website? The Selwyn PTA is currently looking for sponsors for this year’s Red Ribbon Reading program. RRR is our summer reading fundraiser where students set reading goals, find sponsors and raise money for Selwyn! This is a great opportunity to promote your business while being part of our community and school.

For more information, please click here to view a flyer, and contact Kursten Callahan with questions. Secure your spot as a sponsor by March 13th to be included in materials printed this spring!

Harris Edges Lis for the Win!

It came down to the final seconds, but in the end Mrs. Harris edged out Mr. Lis to win the Building Blocks Tricycle Race to the cheers of Selwyn students and staff.

A special thanks to the family of Connor Greene (1st) for the awesome NASCAR costumes for the event; as well as our friends at Toys & Company, The Price Family (Evan/Carter) and Smith Family (Anne Gordon/Robert) for lending us a variety of trikes for our contestants to choose from.

Turkeys and Trikes – Selwyn Families Respond to BB Giving Day Challenge!

We want to thank everyone that came together to make Selwyn Giving Day a HUGE success!

Thanks to the kind generosity of more than 210 families, you blew through all three Giving Day challenges. As of Friday, over 36% of Selwyn families had participated with family donations and pledges totaling over $68,000, and additional funds expected from matching grants! And we are still receiving donations mailed on Friday. T his means more books, technology and other educational resources for Selwyn and for Billingsville.

And of course this also means our children will love seeing Mr. Lis with blue hair and have loads of fun watching a challenging tricycle race between Mr. Lis and Mrs. Harris. It also means we’ll see Mr. Lis dressed as a turkey THIS Tuesday! In fact, Mrs. Harris was so impressed with the wonderful turnout that she’s going to dress up as a turkey too!

But we’re not done yet! We are still working towards our goal of 100% participation and $100,000 by the end of February. If you missed Giving Day, please click here to make your gift today!
