 CLYNK EOY Fundraising Updates

As the school year is coming to a close, we want to thank everyone for supporting the CLYNK program at Pond Cove! Cape Elizabeth has really made an impact in the State of Maine with recycling and programs like this are a huge help financially to supporting programs within our schools.
Below are the totals for this 2017-2018 school year for CLYNK.

K - Class of 2030 - $911.67
1st Grade - Class of 2029 - $613.36
2nd Grade - Class of 2028 - $894.91
3rd Grade - Class of 2027 - $1,040.55
4th Grade - Class of 2026 - $905.09

A HUGE thank you to Kristina Justh, Allison Blackstone and Robyn Diamond for their tireless efforts in facilitating all aspects of CLYNK for Pond Cove! From coordinating bag folding to filling classroom bins to creating packets to be sent home in back pack mail, their commitment, energy and effort around this program are greatly appreciated!

Please continue to CLYNK all Summer long! The bags you have at home will continue to associated with your childs grade. For example, if you have a current 4th grader who is rising to 5th next year, even though your bags say "4th Grade" on them, you can despite them at CLYNK all Summer and even next year as the account number associated with those bags will roll to their next grade.
