RIDE THE WAVE – August 16th – September 3rd.
Support Altadeña PTSO’s Fall Fundraiser – RIDE THE WAVE. Our goal is to raise $30,000; $10,000 from each grade level, 6th, 7th and 8th. Thanks to our generous and supportive community, we have over 30 raffle prizes and 6 Grand prizes to give away. We are thrilled to raffle off an Apple Watch, Phoenix Suns tickets and a Chromebook just to name a few! For every $10 your family or friends donate to Ride the Wave, your student’s name will be automatically entered into the raffle and grand prize drawings. For a $100 donation, your student will receive a one-of-a-kind Altadena hoodie.
WOW! Wipe Out Wednesday Winners! Every Wednesday of the fundraiser we will randomly select prize winners. Any student whose name is in the raffle is eligible to win one prize each week. Winners will be announced Wednesday, August 18th, 25th and September 1st.
This year, PTSO has been asked to replace the school’s outdoor ramada tables with high-quality, weather-resistant navy blue tables. These new tables will offer our students a safe option for outdoor learning; and a place to eat lunch, socialize and make new friends. In addition to providing campus improvements, your monetary donation will allow your PTSO to continue providing classroom learning supplies, fulfill teacher funding requests and host our monthly teacher and staff hospitality luncheons.
We hope you will RIDE THE WAVE with us and DONATE today!
