Orion PTA



Welcome to the PTA Webpage!

PTA Charger Bazaar
The fourth annual Charger Bazaar will be held in conjunction with the Orion PTA Vendor Fair on Saturday, November 3 at C.R. Hanna Elementary School from 9:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. 
The Vendor Fair is one of the PTA's largest fundraisers and it is a great way for Orion families to support the local direct-sales businesses in our community.
The Orion PTA would like to invite the students at C.R. Hanna, OMS and OHS to be part of the Vendor Fair by selling their own items at the Charger Bazaar in the C.R. Hanna small gym. 
Students may sell a variety of items:  handmade goods (picture frames, duct tape creations, jewelry, ornaments, magnets, etc.), gently used toys, room decor, sports equipment, trading cards, Charger clothes, books, homemade baked goods, etc. 
There will not be a fee for the students to sell their items. 
Registration forms will be sent home with C.R. Hanna students on Friday, October 12
On Friday, October 12, info will be posted in the OMS Parent Bulletins and in the OHS Chargergram. 
The registration form will be posted under the PTA tab on the district website that day as well.  
Pre-registration is required and forms are due by Friday, October 26
Please contact Autumn Manning at autumnmanning@hotmail.com or 738-6515 with any questions. 

Schwan's Fundraiser

The Orion PTA will take part in the Schwan's Cares fundraising program again this year to raise money for free activities that the PTA sponsors (Donuts with Dad, for example) or for teacher/staff requests.

The Orion PTA will receive a percentage of customer's sales when they indicate their support of the Orion PTA when they order online or over the phone.  From September 7 until October 22, PTA earns 20% of customer's online and phone sales and 40% of eGift Card sales.  From October 23 until January 20, 2019, the PTA will earn 5% of online and phone sales orders. 

If you are not a current Schwan's customer, visit their website at www.schwans-cares.com or call 855.870.7208 to start shopping.  Simply enter the Orion PTA's campaign ID (40944) at checkout.  Ordering is easy and Schwan's delivers directly to your home.

If you know friends or family members (those near and far) who are currently Schwan's customers, please share the Orion PTA's campaign ID (40944) with them.  They simply enter it during the checkout process and the PTA earns money.  It's that easy! 

Catalogs are available in the C.R. Hanna Office and at the District Office.

Please contact Autumn Manning at autumnmanning@hotmail.com or 738.6515 with any questions.
