Support FTE through the No-Hassle Fundraiser!

 

Our annual FTE No-Hassle Fundraiser is our Booster Club's means of raising funds to support FTE's countless programs that are important to the education of our children but are not funded by the school's operating budget. This simple approach asks families to make a direct donation instead of gathering pledges or selling products. 100% of your donation goes to the FTE Booster Club with no fees being paid to outside companies.  Our goal this year is 100% of families participating with a suggested donation of $130 per student. You can choose from a list of specific items to sponsor or donate any amount you choose.  Every dollar counts and will go directly to the FTE Booster Club!  The deadline to donate is September 29th (Bingo Night).  Prizes will be awarded to classes that reach 100% participation, and every family who donates will be entered into weekly raffle drawings for gift cards to local hot spots!  Donate early for more chances to win!!!  Congratulations to our lucky winners so far: Andrea & Jairo Romero, Kara & Shelby Brown, Cami & Kris Wickham, Christine & James Parker, and William Bitner.

 

***UPDATE***We will be holding a special raffle drawing for those who attend this Friday's Principal's Coffee/Booster Club Meeting and make their no-hassle donation at the meeting (or before).  So come to the meeting, support FTE, and you could walk away with a great prize!!!

 

Donate online via the new Booster Club Website (http://tinyurl.com/ ftenohassle2018) or via Venmo (FTE No Hassle or @NoHassleFTE2018, please list child's name and grade in notes).

FAQ's

Q:  Will my entry be copied from last year?

A:  Yes!  Unless you submitted changes during Muffin Morning at the directory table.

 

Q:  How can I submit changes to my family's entry after Muffin Morning?

A:  Send changes (or new additions) via email (ftedirectory@gmail.com) or drop your form at the front office no later than 9/21/18.  Current FTE families who have new children starting will also need to submit their new student's name and grade.

 

Q:  Will the information I provided on Skyward Family Access (during registration in early August) be used for the FTE Directory?

A:  NO.  This is completely separate from Skyward, which is the district's online site for registration, grade books, meal plans, etc. Too many people opt-out of sharing on Skyward.  Our directory is much more complete than the online Eanes directory.
