PAYBACK BOOK FUNDRAISER
The Payback book fundraiser is currently underway! Each student should have received an envelope with a sample Payback book this week to bring home. Feel free to use the sample book to show people what coupons are offered inside. There are tons of great discount coupons for local businesses (such as grocery stores, restaurants and activity centers) in the Vancouver/Camas area! The sample book can be purchased for $24 or returned to school in your child's envelope. Any additional books that your child sells will be issued at the end of the fundraiser. Students that sell a certain number of books are eligible for really cool prizes!
The fundraiser will run from now until Fri, Sept. 22. Payback books sell for $24 and half of that will go back to support the Dorothy Fox PTA. Checks should be made out to Dorothy Fox PTA.
Please note that students are encouraged only to sell to people they know such as relatives and friends and NOT to strangers.
