Consider yourselves the lucky ones to be the first to receive information about how you may sponsor a Lockdown Kit for your student''s classroom at ECR. Normally, kits are $35, but we were able to secure a great deal from a local vendo rfor only $25 per kit. Since these are not funded through LAUSD, Friends of ECR is reaching out to our own ECR families, as well as local businesses, Chamber of Commerce and Neighborhood Council to help us in our efforts to ensure that all 140 of our classrooms are outfitted with a lockdown kit.We are going to be very creative in this campaign, "Toilets for Teens," because if you can''t add a bit of humor to porta potties, then what CAN you laugh at?!We have already received an anonymous donation of $1,500 towards this effort, and that just makes me smile. We are so fortunate to be part of such a great, giving community.
Please share this flyer with your friends, businesses, other ECR families, etc.(while you''re also hitting them up for a silent auction donation for our Sip the Night Away event!) Together, I am confident we can all work together to raise the funds to provide these kits.Thanks in advance for your assistance, and as always, contact me if you have any questions.
