Drive for Schools Fundraiser!

Thank you!

THANK YOU to everyone who chose to support your school through the Drive for Schools fundraiser. It is an important one in that it allows all of us to reach outside our own pocketbooks to friends, relatives, neighbors, and business associates. Along this line, thank you to Jessica Cambell for setting up the ticket sales opportunity at Deluxe Foods in Aptos.

Drive for Schools raised $13,755 for our annual and capital funds, which, unfortunately, was quite a bit short of the $20,000 goal. We will need to make up this shortfall in our other fundraising efforts this year.

We especially want to recognize students and their families who went above and beyond and sold more than the 4 packets of tickets provided to each student: HUGE kudos and thanks to:
Phoebe (8th) who sold 15 packets=90 tickets!
Paris (2nd) who sold 14 packets=84 tickets!
Ben P. (4th), Isabella (3rd), and Grace (4th), who each sold at least 12 packets=72 tickets!
Savannah (5th) and Katie (2nd), who each sold at least 10 packets=60 tickets!
Special mention and thanks also to Ronan (5th), Jackson (3rd), Kadence (1st), Meris (4th), Forrest (2nd), Cecily (3rd), Simone (4th), Anna (3rd), Denali (4th), Riley (5th), Sienna (8th), Wyatt (2nd), Ronan (3rd), Isabella (9th), Bryce (4th), Aria (5th), Daniel (12), Richard (2nd), and Siena (K).

The drawing will be held at the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk on Sunday, October 27, 2013. **Need not be present to win**


Mount Madonna School is participating in the Drive for Schools fundraiser.

100% of ticket sales go to MMS.

Join us on Saturday, October 12 at Deluxe Foods at the Deer Park Shopping Center in Rio Del Mar from 10am-3pm at the Mount Madonna School Booth to sell tickets. This is a great opportunity for students can practice their public speaking skills!

Just show-up or email Jessica at . If you think you will have unsold tickets and cannot help on the 12th, please return them to School by Thursday, October 10th so others can sell them at the booth.

Our goal is $20,000. Classes who sell the most (average per student) will celebrate with a pizza party! Classes who reach their per class goal will also celebrate. Students who sell the most tickets will receive prizes.

Please return ALL stubs, money, and any unsold tickets by Thursday, October 17th.

  • Please ensure that the ticket purchaser fills out the entire ticket stub, and you keep that portion to turn in to the office.
  • Give the larger part of the raffle ticket back to the purchaser so they can claim their prize, if they win. Must be 18 years or older to win.
