Do you shop at Amazon? Whether you are an occasional Amazon consumer, or a “get-everything-I-possibly-can” Amazon enthusiast, you can earn REWARDS for the IREPTO just by making purchases with Amazon!!!

What is AmazonSmile?  AmazonSmile is a simple and automatic way for you to support your favorite charitable organization every time you shop, at no cost to you. When you shop at smile.amazon.com, you’ll find the exact same low prices, vast selection and convenient shopping experience as Amazon.com, with the added bonus that Amazon will donate a portion of the purchase price to your favorite charitable organization. You can choose from nearly one million organizations to support.

How do I shop at AmazonSmile?   To shop at AmazonSmile simply go to smile.amazon.com from the web browser on your computer or mobile device. You may also want to add a bookmark to smile.amazon.com to make it even easier to return and start your shopping at AmazonSmile.

Which products on AmazonSmile are eligible for charitable donations?   Tens of millions of products on AmazonSmile are eligible for donations. You will see eligible products marked “Eligible for AmazonSmile donation” on their product detail pages. Recurring Subscribe-and-Save purchases and subscription renewals are not currently eligible.

Can I use my existing Amazon.com account on AmazonSmile? Yes, you use the same account on Amazon.com and AmazonSmile. Your shopping cart, Wish List, wedding or baby registry, and other account settings (such as Prime Membership) are also the same.

How do I select a charitable organization to support when shopping on AmazonSmile?  On your first visit to AmazonSmile (smile.amazon.com), you need to select a charitable organization to receive donations from eligible purchases before you begin shopping. You will find the IREPTO listed as Indian Run Elementary School Parent Teachers Organization

How much of my purchase does Amazon donate?  The AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the purchase price from your eligible AmazonSmile purchases. The purchase price is the amount paid for the item minus any rebates and excluding shipping & handling, gift-wrapping fees, taxes, or service charges. From time to time, we may offer special, limited time promotions that increase the donation amount on one or more products or services or provide for additional donations to charitable organizations. Special terms and restrictions may apply. Please see the relevant promotion for complete details.

Can I receive a tax deduction for amounts donated from my purchases on AmazonSmile?  Donations are made by the AmazonSmile Foundation and are not tax deductible by you.

How can I learn more about AmazonSmile?  Please see complete AmazonSmile program details.

PTO General Meeting

Friday, September 5 at 10:00am in the Indian Run School Commons

Come and share your ideas, concerns and get involved! We hope to see you there!

Parent Volunteers

Parent Volunteers may be used throughout the school system for:

A.  One (1) day resource service projects such as a lecture, a demonstration, or assistance on a field trip;

B.  Short term resource service projects;

C.  Continuing service projects extending over long periods or for the entire school year such as library volunteers, classroom volunteers, and office volunteers.

If you plan to be a parent volunteer in your child’s classroom and are scheduled to work with children in a 1:1 or small group setting, you are required to complete a BCI/FBI background check and complete a  “Volunteer Release Form”.  You can print the attached document or pick one up in the school office.  Completed “Volunteer Release Forms” must be turned into the school office.  If your volunteer work does not include 1:1 or small group settings with children (assisting with bulletin boards, assisting teachers with copies, working the snack table at lunch), then you are not required to complete a background check or form.

The Dublin City School central office hosts fingerprint/background checks every Wednesday from 8am-4:30pm at no cost to you.  No appointment is necessary.

Central Office is located at 7030 Coffman Road, next to Coffman High School.  Background checks are good for 5 years.

You will need a valid driver’s license to complete the background check.

PTO Membership Donations

  Indian Run PTO Membership Donation Form

 The Indian Run Parent-Teacher Organization (PTO ) offers fun, innovative and educational programming that enriches our students’ learning experience at Indian Run Elementary School.

With that goal in mind, the PTO hosts social activities like Movie Night, Bingo Night, and the President’s Day ice-skating party. We bring well-known authors, motivational speakers and musical entertainment to school. We provide grants to teachers who do innovative activities in their classrooms. We purchase Smart Boards and other technology that enhance the learning environment.  The PTO purchased a new electronic keyboard for the music room in 2014.   We are here to help make Indian Run a better school for our kids. 

Of course, these types of activities cost money.  We have several Fundraising Events during the year to fund all our efforts, but your donation would be greatly appreciated.

You can help by making a one-time, tax-deductible donation!

Every Indian Run family is automatically a member of the Indian Run PTO. Dues are not required for your children to benefit from everything we offer. Your financial support – in the form of a membership donation – will help ensure that the PTO can continue offering the programs, activities, and events we’ve all come to appreciate.

If you can help, just return your donation and the attached Donation Form in an envelope marked “PTO Membership Donation” to IRE (80 W Bridge Street, Dublin, OH 43017) by September 26, 2014.

Please make checks payable to IRE PTO.  Thank you for your support.
