Apollo PTA presents the 2018-2019 Spring Fundraiser

 
ORANGE RULER
 
Our fundraising drive is off to a great start! We wanted to thank the large number of you that have registered your children, provided support, sent out donation requests and continue to update your children's progress by entering cash or check donations as they are received.

If you have not yet had a chance to register your child, please do so today by visiting orangeruler.com/signup as there's only a little time left before Turn-In Day. Registration is fast and easy and once registered, you can make a 100% tax-deductible donation, send donation requests via email to your friends and family and even view your child's and his/her classroom's progress in real-time. We also accept all company matching programs.

Thank you again for your support with this important fundraiser. Your efforts go a long way in helping us make this one of the most successful fundraisers our school has ever had.  If you have any questions, please email fundraising@apollopta.org.
