  7. Please see attachment for a sponsor list for the events that we will have at the Spring Fling.  Please feel free to take these to any business you know who might be interested in sponsoring an event.  There is no tax receipt in this case as we are providing advertising, but it is an amazing way to get info out and to be a community aware/involved business.  Any business who sponsors over $250.00 also gets advertising for the year in all of our newsletters and on the website and twitter
  8. Please remember the Spring Fling Stuffies wall when you are doing your spring cleaning.  We will be accepting previously loved stuffies and small toys donations at the school up until the Spring Fling (June 8th).  Please wash your stuffies before dropping them off.

As always feel free to contact me if ever you have concerns … or just want to share some great ideas … and don’t forget to check out our website at and follow us on twitter @stleosfun
