It's time for our NEW Mixed Bag fundraiser! Catalogs were sent home this
week, along with a cover letter that has all the details about the
fundraiser. Mixed Bag offers high quality, durable, reusable bags - that
can hold up to 60 pounds! The recyclable products are all BPA, Phthalate &
lead free.

The catalog has something for everyone - duffel bags, totes, storage bags,
tablet cases, backpacks, purses, car organizers, casserole carriers,
coolers and even guy "stuff". The holidays are coming up, so think gift
giving too! All items will be delivered at the end of November.
Please remember to have all checks made out to UEPTO and collect a 6%
sales taxon all your orders. Students should keep the yellow sheet of the
duplicate order form. Mixed Bag sale ends MONDAY, OCTOBER 21.

Committee Chairperson Needed!
Dear UE families
The UEPTO is in need of someone to take over the job of running our
passive fundraising activities such as the Giant, Superfresh, Target and
Escrips programs.
This position can be worked on at home so it is great for anyone with a
little extra time to give to UE.
A full transition of the position will take place so you will be fully
trained on what is needed.
If you are new to UE or someone looking to get more involved, this is a
great position to take on as a way to volunteer.
Thank you so much for considering chairing this committee so UE continues
to receive the benefit of these money making programs!
Please contact Kim Lauder with questions or to volunteer to take on the
no packaging and no uneaten food. We're even targeting recyclables. So,
for one day, try putting away the single-serving items and baggies, and
dig out the Tupperware & Rubbermaid from the back of the cabinet. Then
find out and pack what your kids will actually eat, and you're on your way.
While the district food service is focusing on the elementary schools to
start, students at the middle and high schools are invited to go TRASHLESS
on Tuesday as well, in the spirit of solidarity with the district.

During a trash audit at Hillendale a couple of years ago, we measured 70
lbs of trash during one day's lunch periods. Multiply that out for the
whole district and that's a lot of garbage.
In response, UCF School District is on its way to TRASHLESS TUESDAYS!
Pocopson Elementary has been practicing Trashless Tuesdays every week for
a few years and the craze is catching on. Moving forward, on the last
Tuesday of every month, starting this Tuesday, September 24, lunches in
all of the elementary school cafeterias will be TRASHLESS. If you pack
lunch (or snacks) for your kids, please consider packing TRASHLESS as
well. That means
