Welcome to the first fundraiser of the year – BEEF JERKY!
The beef jerky comes in a variety package that contain three flavors (Original, Peppered, & Teriyaki). Each 6oz package of jerky (2oz of each flavor) is sold for $16. It’s important to please COLLECT MONEY AT THE TIME OF THE SALE. Please make checks payable to RATTLESNAKE ELEMENTARY.
Return order forms and all funds by September 20 to your student’s teacher.
The profits from the sale will go towards funding our FAMILY CONNECTION CENTER (FCC). The FCC provides services for Families in Transition, parenting classes, Family Fun Nights, child care during conferences, and providing short-term emergency food and clothing for anyone who needs it within our school community.
Funds for the FCC also pay for staff at Rattlesnake who facilitate the mission of the “MBI” (Montana Behavioral Initiative), ensuring that all kids learn skills necessary for success: academic, social, emotional, and behavioral.
In addition to the gratification of helping to support FCC’s valuable services, any student who sells twelve packages will earn a limo ride to Pizza Hut for lunch with Principal Wright. She looks forward to this fun and exciting annual award lunch!
During the sale, please help your students to sell packages of jerky to friends, neighbors and family. Your beef jerky will be available in your teacher’s homeroom around October 17, for pick up.
This is the ONLY fundraiser of the year in the format of asking that students sell items – if you are not comfortable with fundraisers where your kid(s) sell things, please know that we have lots of other types of fundraisers coming later in the school year! And of course, you can always just donate money directly.
50% of the profits from the beef jerky sales go to the PTA, to fund the initiatives listed above. Last year, the PTA made $3,200 (net) from this fundraiser, and 19 lucky students got top selling prize- to take the limo ride to Pizza Hut!

Thank you for your help – we are hoping for great results!
