Weekly Update for August 12th to 16th

Good Morning, Everyone!

We have finished up all of the grade level curriculum nights. We hope you were able to come down and meet your child’s teacher and take a quick look around the school.

This week’s post is a big one, so pour yourself a cup of coffee and enjoy!

Here is your PTG update for the upcoming week.

Restaurant Night

  • Thursday, August 15th – Rubio’s Restaurant – Our first restaurant night of the year kick’s off at Rubio’s Restaurant. Bring your family and friends down the the Rubio’s at 1480 Eastlake Parkway from 2 p.m. to 10 p.m. This is a great night out after a busy day, PLUS 20% of your total bill will be donated back to the school.

eScrip Membership – eScrip Membership Sign-up: Did you have an eScrip membership last year? Your membership expired on July 31, 2013. Please renew your membership or sign-up for the first time at http://www.escrip.com/. Our school account # is 164756626.

DID YOU KNOW? If you register your VONS card with the eScrip program, 10% of what you spend will go back to the school, and help to support many of the programs the PTG runs.

If you would like the PTG to register your VONS card for the eScrip program, we can certainly help you out. Please forward the following information to saltcreekptg@yahoo.com:


Target REDcard – Did you know that you can link your Target REDcard to Salt Creek Elementary School. By doing this 1% of what you spend will be donated back to the school and will help fund the many programs we offer. There are currently only 27 REDcards registered to our school, and those 27 cards have helped to raise approximately $700. Imagine what we could do if there were more REDcards linked to Salt Creek School!

Registering your card is easy.

  • Just follow this link: Target REDcard.
  • Click “ENROLL.”
  • Use our school ID (140944) to find Salt Creek Elementary and click “SELECT SCHOOL.”
  • Follow the prompts to enter the information regarding your card and personal information.

VOILA! Now 1% of all of your Target purchases will be donated back to the school.
