PTSO Shoe Drive
The PTSO is sponsoring a Shoe Drive to raise money for Cabarrus Tech from NOW until Nov. 17th. Donate gently worn, used and new shoes and the Cabarrus Tech PTSO will earn funds based on the total weight of the pairs of shoes collected. 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 and 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 and house their families. One budding entrepreneur in Haiti even earned enough to send to her son to law school. By donating gently worn, used and new shoes, the shoes will be given a second chance and make a difference in people’s lives around the world.
You can drop off shoe donations at the front office Monday-Friday from 9-4pm.
To help students and parents stay connected with Cabarrus Tech, we are using Remind.com. Remind is a free, safe messaging app that keeps families up to date with what’s happening in the classroom. Teachers can send messages to an entire class, smaller groups, or individuals. You learn more about how Remind.com works and its’ safety features by reading the Remind-Overview-Parent. You can sign up by going to your student's grade level for the school year 2017-2018 and clicking whether you are a parent or student.
This will be our primary way to send informational and safety alert texts to students and parents. Please sign up.
