Teacher Experience Opportunity Drawing

Ticket sales: Monday, Feb. 12 through Thursday, Feb. 22*
Winners announced at Flag Salute on Friday, Feb. 23

*Be on the lookout for a flyer coming home with your student! You can return the form to the PTO mailbox outside the front office with cash or a check made out to SEES PTO in a sealed envelope. Or stop by the PTO tent before or after school to purchase tickets in person.

How It Works

1. With your student, check out the experiences below to see which ones he/she/you would enjoy most. Does your student talk nonstop about Mr. Bell and love football? Would she love to be principal for the day alongside Mr. Pope? Would Mom or Dad do anything for a reserved parking spot?!

2. Purchase as many $5 raffle tickets for however many experiences you like! The more tickets you purchase, the better your chances are of winning!

3. Keep your fingers and toes crossed -- and good luck!


How much are the raffle tickets?

How many tickets should I buy?
Most students buy anywhere from 1 to 20+ tickets. Winning tickets will be drawn at random.

Is there a limit to the number of tickets I can buy?

Does my child have to choose their teacher or their grade level?
No, they are welcome to choose any teacher or staff member from any grade level. If they want an experience with a past teacher, or someone else they admire on campus, that is great! If they choose a grade level experience, they must specify the teacher they would like to attend with.

When will the winners be announced?
Winners will be announced at Flag Salute on Friday, Feb. 23

Will teachers/staff drive my student to the activity?
No, parents are responsible for transportation to and from any off-campus experiences unless otherwise stated (e.g., walk to town square).

Is this a fundraiser?
Yes, all funds go directly to the San Elijo Elementary Parent Teacher Organization, which allocates money for multiple staff salaries (think: instructional aids, STEM teacher), supplies, field trips, assemblies and more!

Are teachers/staff reimbursed for experiences?
Our wonderful teachers and staff volunteer their time, talents and own funds to make this fundraiser happen! They enjoy it just as much as the kids!
