Herbert Slater PTO Launches Shoe Drive Fundraiser - Santa Rosa

Herbert Slater PTO is conducting a shoe drive fundraiser through
March 31st to raise funds for student incentives, awards, field trips
& assemblies, as well as specialized curriculum & classroom needs
that serve over 730 students.  Herbert Slater PTO will earn funds
based on the total weight of the pairs of gently worn, used & new shoes
collected, as Funds2Orgs will issue a check for the collected shoes.
Those dollars will benefit students of Herbert Slater Middle School.
Anyone can help by donating gently worn, used & new shoes
at Herbert Slater.
3500 Sonoma Ave Santa Rosa.

All donated shoes will then be redistributed throughout the
Funds2Orgs network of micro-enterprise (small business) partners. Funds2Orgs works with micro-entrepreneurs in helping them create,
maintain & grow small businesses in developing countries where
economic opportunity and jobs are limited. Proceeds from the sales
of the shoes collected in shoe drive fundraisers are used to feed,
clothe & house their families.  One budding entrepreneur in Haiti
even earned enough to send to her son to law school.


By donating gently worn, used & new shoes to the Herbert
Slater Shoe Drive, the shoes will be given a second chance
& make a difference in people’s lives around the world.

a short quiz to monitor comprehension.  Based on their score, students
are given points toward their individual goal.  At the end of each trimester, incentives & celebrations are available for students who meet their goals. Progress is monitored through a diagnostic benchmark, STAR Reading,
taken 3 times a year.

11am-7pm - Shadow & Light. Black is symbolic in many cultures,
expressing mystery, elegance, drama, even the great void. Whites
& grays, conversely, are hopeful, bringing contrast & defining forms.
The absence of color allows us to better see the pictorial composition
& the arrangements & intensity of shadows & light can create a high
contrast image or a dusky play of subtle grays. The lack of color
concentrates our attention on the subject & the design.
