A note from the PTO

The PTO annual Easter Egg hunt will be on Saturday March 26th at 10:00am.  The PTO estimates approximately 1000 eggs are placed on the field and playground for children to gather.  The PTO is looking for donations of wrapped candy.  We are asking for all donations to be at the office by Wednesday March 16th.  Thank you in advance for you donations and we look forward to seeing everyone on March 26th.   

Breathe New Hampshire is an organization that works to improve lung health in individuals and this year they are celebrating their 100th birthday.  In order to raise money for the organization, they have created the Fun Pass coupon booklets.  If you are unfamiliar with the booklets and what they offer, I think you would be pleasantly surprised.  The books offer a tremendous amount of coupons to attractions across the state and surrounding area.  Most coupons offer a free child admission when accompanied by a paying adult and although the cost of the books seems high ($32), you will find that sometimes just one coupon pays for the cost of the booklet.  For instance, the booklet offers a "One admission free with purchase of on admission" to Story Land.  This is a $32.99 value.  Offers also include coupons to ski areas such as Cannon ($53 value); Loon Mtn. ($65 value); Sunapee ($54 value); Wildcat, Waterville, Pats Peak and more.  Other highlights include whale watching coupons which will save you anywhere from $23-$33; the Hobo Railroad; Mt. Washington Auto Road; Vertical Dreams climbing gym; Portland Sea Dogs baseball and much more.  Overall there are 118 coupons which offer over $1,800 of savings.  The Environmental Club is helping Breathe New Hampshire raise money for their important cause and $8 of every book sold will go to our club to help maintain the trails in our outdoor classroom and to pay for the materials and tools needed to create signs, buy bird houses and tree taps for maple syruping.  If interested contact Chris Gagnon at cgagnon@sau53.org.  

Have a great day
