Energy Kit Challenge
Our school has the opportunity to win $2,500, and do its part in saving the planet! We’re participating in a five-state energy conservation program from Duke Energy, and through this program, our families and staff can request a FREE Energy Kit to be delivered to their homes. For every 100 kit requests from our school, we’ll automatically win $250, and the school that requests the most kits by December 31st will win $2,500! So far our families have requested 184 kits - only 16 more requests and our PTA will receive another $250. Remember, any Duke Energy customer can sign up for a kit (grandparents, aunts and uncles, friends and neighbors).
Please help us out and request your FREE kit! Go to MyEnergyKit.org or call 1-855-386-9548.
