Because we sadly can't meet in person for a Gala or Walk-a-thon, which have traditionally served as our primary fundraisers for the year, this year we will host a new endeavor called Monarch Mondays. Beginning in early December, all students (online and in-person) and families will have the option to order a Monarch Mondays t-shirt or hoodie, which students may wear to school every Monday in 3rd and 4th quarters (January 4 - June 1, 2021) with the bottoms of their choice, following the school's policies. It's like a special Monarch Mondays Spirit Day, but instead of once a month, it's EVERY MONDAY in the 3rd and 4th quarters! Must have a Monarch Mondays t-shirt or hoodie to participate.
Similar to a 5K race shirt, Monarch Mondays shirts will have a list of family and business sponsors on the back. Please consider being a sponsor! Since this will be our primary fundraiser for the year, we kindly ask for your sponsorship as a way to show school spirit, community and support for the PSO during this challenging time. Funds raised will be applied towards enhancing the school's outdoor spaces (including recess options), and funding the PSO's annual events.
“Monarch” level sponsors ($2,500) receive 6 free t-shirts, a spotlight feature on the school’s social media platforms, and their business logo or family name prominently featured on the back of the shirt – the only logos on the shirts! Act fast: only two Monarch level sponsorships are available! Contact Erin Bonasso (firstname.lastname@example.org) to secure this exclusive placement.
“Maroon” level sponsors ($1,000) receive 4 free t-shirts, placement at the top of the donor list in larger font, and a spotlight feature on the school’s social media accounts.
“Gold” level sponsors ($500) receive 2 free t-shirts, name in medium font in the middle of the sponsor list, and a group post on the school’s social media accounts.
“White” level sponsors ($250) receive 1 free t-shirt and their name in a smaller font in the donor list.
For a donation of $20, you can help us provide a Monarch Mondays shirt to each member of the StMM faculty and staff.
There are two easy ways to become a sponsor or donate a teacher shirt(s). All sponsor submissions must be received by November 24, 2020, which is a hard cutoff date so we can forward our sponsor list to the printer. You may print the sponsor and staff shirt donor form and mail a check, or you may pay online by credit card or linked checking account through FACTS. If you are a business and need our non-profit Tax ID number, please see our donor letter.
The PSO does everything from offering arts enrichment with visiting artists, to hosting middle school dances, providing Santa's Secret Workshop and sleigh rides during the Christmas season, and funding teacher grants and appreciation. The PSO touches every student in the school from PK to 8th grade. As we have learned this year, outdoor spaces and a variety of recess options are especially important to our school and students. We would love your help in continuing the PSO's mission.
Online store for shirt orders will open in December. Questions? Please contact Erin Bonasso for sponsorship, Kelley Ann Ward for shirt ordering, Angela Malfeo for teacher shirts, and PSO Presidents Molly Pryzwansky and Tina Korzeniowski with general inquiries.
