Hopefully those BoxTops that you have been saving all summer can now be put to good use for our school. We will be having a contest to see which classroom can collect the largest dollar value of BoxTops. Grades K – 8th can participate. For all grades the BoxTops will be collected in your child’s homeroom class except for the 6th graders where they will be collected in their 2nd period class.
The winning classroom will be treated to an ice cream party. Prizes will also be awarded for the second and third place winners. You can get other friends and family involved to help boost your child’s contribution. The contest will end Friday, Oct. 24th.
This will be wonderful night where parents, students, teachers and the community can enjoy activities together while raising funds that will directly benefit the students of Reagan Academy. The money that we raise will go to support activities such as Red Ribbon Week, White Ribbon Week, the Science Fair, the birthday table, staff appreciation, and other PVO supported activities. Feel free to invite your friends and neighbors, and “share” this great activity. The following pricing information will help you plan for a great family night out. Games and rides can either be purchased individually with tickets, or by buying the appropriate wristband. Food can be purchased with tickets or cash.
Our 6th grade classes are doing a service project to help a 2nd grade Reagan Academy student with the costs of her surgery and, the prosthetic that she needs after her surgery is complete. For more information about Lydia’s situation, visit https://www.giveforward.com/fundraiser/px34/a-new-foot-for-lydia. The 6th grade has also placed cans in each classroom to collect any coins, change, or money that people want to donate to help Lydia. All of the money collected will go directly to Lydia’s family.
The students have also organized a walk-a-thon on Thursday, April 24th – 2nd & 6th. To participate in the walk-a-thon please contact the office at 801-489-7828. These students have had the opportunity to meet with Lydia and her mom and to learn more about her situation. They have made a real connection with her and are excited about the opportunity to serve her and her family.

As a Reagan family, when one of our own stands in need, we like to do what we can to help.
Meet 8-year old Lydia.
Lydia will be getting her foot amputated at the end of March and due to so many medical expenses, the family has set up a fundraiser account through giveforward.com. This fundraiser is to help pay for medical bills and help the family meet their deductible for the up-coming surgery.
Please, if you are able to help donate any amount, no matter how small, or if you are unable to help financially, please help by passing Lydia’s story and link to her fundraiser via email, Facebook, and any other social media, we know the family would really appreciate it.
As we ramp up for our Annual Art & Basket Auction, we wanted to remind you of the fantastic Art portion of the night! We have some great artists on board this year – we are very excited to see what they create that evening.
If you are or if you know of an artist who would like to participate in the art auction, please let us know. In years past, we have had over 20 original art pieces (as well as several prints) that were auctioned off bringing in over 50% of the funds. Ten (10) of the original art pieces were created during our “quick draw” that evening. A “quick draw” is when an artist creates something during a short time period. In our case we give the artists 2-3 hours to work on their piece and in the end whatever they have created will be auctioned off. These are one of a kind, original art pieces that are created before our eyes.
We have also attached a basket donation form that can be filled out and returned to the office. Families can help by donating a basket of their choice to the auction and/or items for the teacher mega baskets. The funds raised from this year’s auction will be awarded to teachers through In School Teacher Grants. Support our school and teachers by turning in your family basket.
Your vote makes a big difference to our school. Visit GiveWith.Target.com to vote to our school.
This year, Target will give money to schools all over the country for one simple act: a vote. Our school needs just 25 votes to earn a $25 donation from Target. But that’s only the beginning. For each additional vote, our school will get $1 more. So please remember that, although the gesture is small, the rewards are potentially huge. Go to GiveWith.Target.com to vote for Reagan Academy once a week through September 21 or until Target has given away all $5 million. And please forward this email to your friends.
