If you purchased a Fall Frenzy shirt, be sure to snap a picture of you or your child wearing it. Post the picture on Facebook or Instagram with the following message: “Eden is going to Fall Frenzy2015 at Pell City Lakeside Park. #fallfrenzy2015” Every time you post, repost or share, Eden will be entered to win $500. The school with the most shares and reposts wins.
We hope to see you all at Fall Frenzy on the 10th. Stop by the Eden booth for some yummy cotton candy. 3rd and 4th Grade Stay-N-Play will be Friday, October 9th from 3:00-5:00. The cost to stay will be $5.00. All concessions will be $1.00. Another way to help Eden earn money is to use the Shoparoo app. All you have to do is download that app on your smart phone or device and take pictures of your receipts from any store. It is that easy! Be sure to use your PUBLIX Partners card each time you shop at Publix. Eden earns money from each use. If you need more cards for friends and family, let your child’s teacher know.
