4th Annual Holiday Market

hm-logo-2016

Seeking Vendors

SWEPTA (South Whidbey Elementary PTA) is still currently looking for a few more vendors for our December 3rd Holiday Market!

This is a community event to get Whidbey Island area crafters and artisans in one place for locals and visitors to shop.  There are no commercial or direct sales booths/products at this event.  It is all handmade/handcrafted/embellished or services in our area.

The market will be in the gym, this is our 4th year holding this event and it is a fundraiser for the PTA.  The last 3 years we raised money for the school, and while the event was small, it also put money back into other homes and small businesses in our community and all the vendors wanted to return.  We are already expecting more vendors this year then in years past.

* 2 booth sizes available 10×10 for $25 (limited) and 8×4 for $15, no additional commissions!!!

* You must provide your own table(s) and chair.

* Contact us ASAP, we are taking late applications until 11/30 or spots are full (could be sooner or later).  This is not a juried event but we do limit duplicate booths so don’t wait.

* Due to safety we can not have pets or small children in vendor booths unless they are infants please.

Some of the types of booths we are looking for, but are NOT limited too: Pottery, jewelry, clothing, toys, fiber wears, art, holiday decor, home decor items, small gifts and lots, lots more!

If interested contact Kymy Johnson the event coordinator.

Holiday Box Tops & Labels For Education Drive

*This fundraising event is for, and is by SWES, but SWEPTA wants to help spread the word.*

LabelsforEducation_Label

Now through 1/8 South Whidbey Elementary School is going to be hosting an all school Box Top & Labels for Education Drive!  The class* that collects the most Box Tops (expired ones will not count) and Labels for Education (must have logo & barcode) will win a pizza party!  Not only that, but ALL classes that collect 400 or more will get a popcorn party.   That averages out to less than 20 box tops or labels for education per student.

boxTops4Education-300x300

Our school earns .10 for every box top that we turn in that has not expired.  If we averaged 20 box tops per student we would raise over $1100.  The money raised from these goes to a variety of things including playground equipment and rain day recess supplies and equipment.  Box Tops can be found on a variety of products from breakfast cereal, to cleaning supplies like garbage bags, and even office supplies like your printer paper!  You can find a full list of participating products here: www.boxtops4education.com/participating-products

labels for educaiton

 

Labels for Education can be found on a large variety of food products.  We get points for every valid label submitted and can use those points to purchase a variety of playground & classroom supplies based on our current needs. You can find a full list of participating products here: www.labelsforeducation.com/Earn-Points/Participating-Products
Don’t buy many products that have these?  Ask friends, family & neighbors (with your parents’ permission of course) if they can collect them for you too!

Just turn your Box Tops & Labels for Education into your teacher on a collection sheet, in a zip top bag or an envelope with your teachers name on it.  These are class competitions only, so it does not need student names, just the teachers. More printable collection sheets can be found on the www.btfe.com site or in the front office. We will announce the winner after winter break!

Questions?  Contact the drive coordinator Kymy Johnson.

*Because the Callahan’s 5th grade classes are combined, theirs will be collected together and they have to collect twice as many as a single class to win, and 800 to earn a popcorn party.
