“THANKS Tickets are a win-win for the school and the community. Area residents have the opportunity to enjoy a variety of discount opportunities. The schools benefit by earning money for the purchase of new or updated technology and other resources throughout the year,” said Principal Lawana Rayburn.
So far this year, Jerger has spent approximately $30,000 on its new playground, border, and mulch. In addition to the new playground, Jerger has also assisted the PTO with the new security measures completed over the summer, spending approximately $20,000 for materials and installation of the new doors, glass, and counters in the lobby.
The money collected from the sale of the THANKS Tickets will be used for the purchasing of student incentives, technology, and other special projects throughout the year.
“The THANKS Ticket makes for a great stocking stuffer, thank you, ‘thinking of you’ token, door prize, or gift for any occasion,” added Rayburn.
Students were sent home with packets containing a list of businesses included on the discount card and fundraising tips to help increase sales while keeping the students safe.
District cash prizes for the top three individuals and Jerger participation prizes will be distributed at the end of the sale. All sales must be submitted to Jerger’s office by 4:30 p.m. on Thursday, September 6, 2018.
District top seller for 2017, Jerger Elementary 5th grader Wyatt Elkins, sold 281 cards.
“I sell THANKS Tickets because I like the prizes, I like helping my school, and I like a lot of people saving money,” said Elkins.
