:-):-):-) TOYS FOR TOTS – WE DID IT!!!

Dear 7th Grade Red Team Parents,

 As you are aware, the students of Oak Mountain Middle School have been campaigning to raise over $20,000 for our annual Toys for Tots drive. There have been many students giving sacrificially donating their hard earned money, giving up Christmas presents of their own for money, asking for donations within the communities and at churches, doing extra chores at home and for family friends, hosting bake sales and making other crafts to sell to donate the proceeds, etc. to help us reach our goal. Even though there are other teams at the school who raised an extreme amount of money for this great cause, we are very proud that the 7th Grade Red team was able to raise a total of $2,139.92  just shy of our team goal of $2,300, and the school surpassed our $20,000 goal in just two weeks. So, we want to extend our gratitude for all that you contributed as well as supporting the U.S. Marines as well as our Toys for Tots drive. We sincerely appreciate your generosity and let you know that we are thankful for you! We were able to celebrate our school’s successful fundraising efforts in a pep rally on Friday, December 1st

 Thank you so very much,

7th Grade Red Team teachers

Students and Parents: The Speak Up 4 Schools Survey (formerly Speak Up) is open for your schools to take for the next few weeks.  This is an excellent way to gather data from our parents, students, and teachers.  It will provide data that we can compare to the district as well as national data.

We will be having each of our students complete the survey in the coming weeks prior to the December holidays in order to get the opinions of our students, and we would love for our parents to also provide their opinions.

The survey can be found at this link (use zip code to find our school): https://speakup.tomorrow.org/

Toys for Tots Update (Auburn/Alabama Faculty VB Match)

OMMS has set an annual goal of $20,000 to raise to purchase holiday items for those who do not have the funds to provide gifts for Christmas. Therefore, we would love to help. We are extremely shy of our goal with only three days left in our campaign. Please help!!!

As 7th grade Red Team, we still need around $800 of our team total of $2,400. We need you, your efforts, and your contributions!

NEWS FLASH: Friday, November 14, 2017 (DURING Lead/Botvin Schedule)

The Alabama/Auburn Faculty Volleyball match is back again. In the past, we have raised close to $800 with this one event, and we would love to see if we can surpass that benchmark this year. Students will have an opportunity to purchase a ticket to attend for $2 as well as concessions for the event. If they choose not to attend, they will be in a classroom setting. This is a great opportunity to see their teachers in action on the volleyball court providing entertainment for all!!!

Come out and support!!!

TOYS FOR TOTS!!! Collecting Monday, November 6th – Friday, November 17th

Our annual Toys for Tots campaign is quickly approaching! The National Junior Honor society for OMMS is collecting money to purchase toys for families that would otherwise not have a Christmas. Last year, 7th grade Red was able to collect over $2,500, and our goal is to surpass our last year’s total! Please start collecting your change and dollars that  you wish to donate.

I will be the teacher collecting money for the 7th-grade red team, and we will keep a total in each class. As there are a few students on our team that do not have me for math, please encourage them to come see me, so we can adopt them to a class so they can participate in the fun of sharing and giving as well! We will be collecting Monday, November 6th – Friday, November 16, so please be ready to donate your spare dollars and change!

If you are wanting to collect within your community and would like more information, please take the attached letter with you! (TFT SIGNED Community Letter 2017)

Ideas to raise money:

  • Bake sale/lemonade stand
  • Ask family, friends, neighbors
  • Donate time to help with chores to earn money
  • Christmas Wish List (ask for money rather than a particular gift)
  • Attend the Annual OMMS Toys for Tots Faculty Auburn v. Alabama match: TBD
