Gift Wrap Fundraiser

**Important Update re the Fall Gift Wrap Fundraiser and Coops, Coops, Coops**
Thank you for helping our fundraiser be a success.  We encourage all families to participate and help the PTA fund ALL FIELD TRIPS for the ENTIRE SCHOOL this year.  
The next CHICKEN COOP-ON collection day is Tuesday 10/1 and Friday 10/4.  Don't forget your coupons to exchange for more coops at the Welcome Garden in the morning before the first bell! If you donate $150 directly to the PTA via Paypal at https://elmarino.ccusd.org/apps/pages/donate-EMPTA, please show your receipt for the donation on chicken coop collection days to allow your student to receive the full set of 12 chicken coops in one go! 
Again, please be advised that the online link to register your child and order catalog items from all 3 catalogs in the Fall Gift Wrap Fundraiser online is bit.ly/ELMARINOPTA
There are 3 different catalogs online: Holiday Treasures, Boon Supply and the Magazine Store.  If you would like to track your sales online yourself and see who ordered what, you must register your child separately in each.  
Regarding Boon Supply, please use the "Register your student for Boon Supply Sales" link to register your child by filling in their name, info and creating an account with your own password.  Once that is done, you can share a link to the catalog store for family and friends to shop and ensure your student gets the credit by  proceeding to the "Order from Boon Catalog" link on the main fundraising webpage above.  There are two super easy ways to share the catalog store!
(1) Once you are in the online Boon Supply catalog store, there is a small vertical "SHARE" tab on the right of the Boon Supply website with a rocket-shaped button which is the "Add Boost10 emails".  Please fill out the requested info (student's name and teacher) as well as add emails to send the shopping link to and Boon Supply will email those people on your behalf.  
(2)  Another way to ensure your student receives credit for their sales is to send family and friends a link to the main Boon Supply catalog store yourself via email or text or social media and request that whoever is purchasing enter your child's first and last name as well as teacher at checkout.
In regards to Holiday Treasures, please be advised that registering your student will involve inputting the red number on the order form that was sent home in the catalog packet.  The school code is ELMARINO19.  Additionally, registration will allow you to track your sales, personalize a fundraising email for your child and send to anyone you would like to send the catalog store link to.  If you yourself want to order from the catalog, please use the separate "Order from Holiday Treasures Catalog" button on the main fundraising webpage.
In regards to the Magazine store, please use our school ID: 3808714 to register your child and create a personalized shopping link to send to family and friends.  If you have registered your student last year, their account is still active.  During registration, please click on RETURNING PARTICIPANT and log in.  If you don't remember your login credentials, you can request a password reset.
Please contact Diane Wade at dianemwade@gmail.com or Helen Yi at helen.yi@elmarinopta.org if you have any questions.
It's that time of year again for gift wrap, goodies and more!  Our Gift Wrap Fundraiser kicks off Wed., Sept. 25th!  
We encourage ALL families to participate by directly donating to the EMPTA or by sharing these catalogs with friends, relatives and co-workers.  This is a significant source of funding for the year as monies raised will be used to fund ALL FIELD TRIPS for the ENTIRE SCHOOL during the 2019-2020 school year.  EVERY PURCHASE MAKES A DIFFERENCE!  
There are 2 ways to participate:
1. Make a one-time donation of $150 to El Marino PTA via PayPal at https://elmarino.ccusd.org/apps/pages/donate-EMPTA or via cash, money order or check made payable to "EL MARINO PTA". 100% of proceeds will go to El Marino PTA and your child will receive a full set of the 12 collectible Aqua Coops! If you have already donated at least $150 to the PTA this year, bring us proof of payment to receive your set of Coops. Payments accepted at the Welcome Garden (formerly Cactus Garden) on Coop handout days: Sept 27, Oct 1, 4, 8, 11.
2. Purchase and share catalog items with friends, relatives and co-workers. Up to 50% of the proceeds will go to El Marino PTA and your child will collect a collectible Aqua Coop as they reach each sales level.
WE HIGHLY ENCOURAGE ONLINE ORDERING!! It’s easy, safe and the best way to keep track of your orders. We have added a new catalog this year, Boon Supply, which accepts online orders only.
