Giveit – Clothing Drive Fundraiser

From now until November 9th we are collecting donations. Any condition of soft goods are acceptable (clothes, shoes, bedding, towels, curtains, soft toys etc. NO mattresses or pillows). Items are sent to Utah thrift shops and what is not used there are sent to developing countries. East Elementary PTA will receive $0.15 per pound for soft goods.

Clothes can be dropped off in a bin at the school. If you don’t see the bin by the office, it is on the stage in the lunchroom.

2018 Back to School Luau a Hit!

2018-08-20-Luau

Thank you Lydia Howard and the PTA for the fabulous Back to School Luau! I think we had a record turn out and every where you looked there were smiles. You can see more pictures on our Facebook page @Cedar East Elementary PTA.

We want to thank our sponsors. Our goal for the Luau is to welcome families back toΒ  school with a free, fun night out. Without generous donations from our sponsors, this would not be possible.
