The 2015 Odle PTSA Spring Fundraiser
The Odle PTSA invites all families to participate in the annual spring fundraiser. This year's event is a pass-the-hat style fundraiser for the entire month of March. All families are encouraged to make a financial contribution to the Odle PTSA and help make Odle's vision a reality.
The Odle PTSA supports numerous programs/activities throughout the school. Watch the Viking News all month long to see the great items that the school needs.
50% of the PTSA's annual budget comes from the Spring Fundraiser!
Our goal for "March Magic" is to raise $15,000 to continue to fund these incredibly valuable educational enhancements, which serve ALL Odle students.
We need everyone's support! Whether you can contribute $500, $250, $100, $15, or any amount in between.

"Plunder Shack" Donation Needed
Hello Esteemed Parents,
I am writing to ask for your help. Since last year, Odle students have been working hard to earn "Odle Bucks" from their teachers by doing well in their classes or random acts of kindness that are deserving of a reward. The students then use their "Odle Bucks" to buy various items at our school "Plunder Shack" every Friday during lunch in the cafeteria. Almost all of the items for the store are donated and we are running low on items. If you have the capacity to donate items either personally or through company connections, that would be so appreciated. Some examples of items that have previously been donated are: toys, hats, school supplies, notebooks, jewelry, Sounders and Seahawks gear, stuffed animals, headphones, card games, video games, gift cards, Microsoft Surface tablets, and Amazon Kindles. Anything would be greatly appreciated as we hope to keep the Plunder Shack going and make it even more exciting for the future.
Donated items may be brought to the front office or mailed to the school. Thank you so much for your support!

Whether an independent local merchant or a national chain-merchant commitment to the education of our children should be commended, including Safeway.

Second Round of Box Tops Submission
Look for "Box Tops for Education" coupons on the boxes and cans that can be cut out, and redeemed for cash for our school. Each box top is only worth 10 cents, but could be worth hundreds of dollars to Odle when combined!
Please look around at home, especially for products like General Mills, Pillsbury, Betty Crocker, Kleenex, Nature Valley, Progresso soups, Old El Paso, Hamburger Helper, Lloyd's Barbecue, Yoplait, etc.
Cut the Boxtop labels and put them into Ziploc bags with your 7th period teacher name. Turn in the bags of labels to the collection box in the office. The class with the most labels will have donuts. Collection deadline will be Feb 13, 2015.
