AmazonSmile fundraising for Slade PTA

The Slade PTA wants to remind families about a super simple way to raise funds for our school!  Amazon.com has a fundraising site called AmazonSmile which donates a small percentage of every purchase to your chosen organization.  Every time you buy an eligible item through AmazonSmile, the Slade PTA receives a tiny percentage of the sale.  AmazonSmile is the same Amazon you know.  Same products, same prices, same service!!

Common sense tells us that kids who miss school miss opportunities to learn. Some absences are just unavoidable. But, how much is too much? New research tells us that missing an average of just two days a month makes a child much more likely to fail a subject or to not graduate from high school. This research also points out that parents often underestimate the effects of missing school. It's in everyone's interest that students are at school the vast majority of the time. Thank you for making attendance a priority at Slade Elementary School!
