Welcome Bags for the Language Ambassadors

We are gladly accepting donations for our LA welcome bags. Items donated in the past include stuff like: Warm (new) socks, gift cards, chapstick, gum, candy etc. Anything donated needs to be donated x6 (although we only have 5 LA's there is still a possibility of the 6, if this potential LA gets his visa approved). So, if people want to donate something it would need to be in quantities of 6. Donations will be accepted through 8/12.

We are also still looking for Aunt/Uncle families - if this family lives in the Hopkins/Bloomington area that would be especially helpful. Their duties would include helping out with rides, spending time with their LA, taking them on family excursions/adventures, having them over for dinner etc. This is a year long commitment.  

Label your Items

We are encouraged to label everything the kiddos bring to school so check out our Mabel's Labels fundraiser (summer camps, sports, additional activities too!) - this is ongoing throughout the year!

20% of proceeds go back to the PTO!

So many designs to choose from to personalize for each child.

Stop by www.campaigns.mabelslabels.com and search International Spanish Language Academy for your labels today!
