News from the WES PTA
Past SPRUCE Adopt-A-Spot Volunteers
Families who have volunteered in our past SPRUCE Adopt a Spot campus clean ups at Weatherstone are invited to attend the Town of Cary Volunteer Appreciation event. If your family is interested in attending the event next year, please consider volunteering this fall or next spring.
GoPlaySave Volunteers needed!
Please consider helping us out with stuffing envelopes and distributing books this Tuesday (9/13) – this is a big effort that will be much easier with a group. We can also use one or two helpers each morning to collect books and orders. http://www.signupgenius.com/go/5080a4faea9292-goplay1
GoPlaySave Books Coming Home this Week!
Do you want to save money and help the Weatherstone PTA? The GoPlaySave coupon books can save you hundreds of dollars during the year. GoPlaySave books contain coupons for restaurants, “things to do”, and stores in the Cary and Raleigh area. Many coupons are “buy one, get one free”. Great for trying out new restaurants and activities. Using just a few coupons can cover the cost for the whole book! Each GoPlaySave Coupon books cost $30. The PTA earns $15 for each book sold!
GoPlaySave books will go on sale this Tuesday, September 13th. Students will bring home one book in an order envelope, along with instructions. We ask you to either send back payment and keep the book, or return the book if you do not want to purchase it by Monday, September 18th. You can also take or place orders for additional books by filling out the order form and bringing in the payments. For every 5 books sold, you receive a free book! Please see the instructional sheet for additional promotions.
Some things to know:
• GoPlaySave Coupon books make great gifts for family and friends in the area.
• You may also order books from other areas – Chapel Hill/Durham, Charlotte and Triad.
• Mobile Book options are also available! See instructions for more details at www.goplaysavetriangle.com/store/WES2017
