The Nyssa Elementary School parent-teacher organization has two ongoing fundraisers: Bulldog cards and the return of paws and painted Ns to local alleys. Columnist Susan Barton has the details on that, as well as a Nyssa Rural Fire event this Saturday.

The Nyssa Elementary School parent-teacher organization is changing things up for its spring fundraiser.
This year, the PTO is selling Bulldog Cards, which offer a discount on purchases when you shop at local businesses. The cards will sell for $20 per card and the discounts listed are worth much more. To buy one, find a student who sells one or send an e-mail [email protected]
Students will be rewarded for card sales and donations with prizes including scratch tickets, a movie in the high school auditorium, a drawing for big prizes, a day as a principal, and lunch with the Resource Officer Rodriguez. The top seller will win a pass for two to Wahooz Family Fun Zone.
People who don’t want to buy a card but want to support students can make $10 cash donations.
PTO fundraisers help pay for field trips, classroom supplies, reward parties, playground equipment and more, enhancing the learning experience for all students in the school . Parents of students at Nyssa Elementary are encouraged to volunteer to help with the organization’s many activities.
• A second fundraiser taking place this spring is the annual “Drive for School Spirit” campaign.
Due to a lack of paint, the PTO could not make it last fall. Now the group is ready to promote school spirit this spring by painting a “paw” and/or an “N” on the alleys and sidewalks.
Watch for updates on the Nyssa Elementary PTO Facebook page and in flyers that will be distributed by elementary school students and at Nyssa Town Hall. The cost is $25 for each print. Contact [email protected] for more details.
• The Nyssa Rural Fire Department is hosting an open house this Saturday at Station 2, 898 Grand Ave., to introduce the Pumper Tender 450 to the community. The event will take place from 12 p.m. to 3 p.m., with hot dogs and burgers, fries, and drinks. Firefighters will be on site with fire safety kits for families.
