If you want a PAC and Foundation Refund, Postmark Your Letter by Today!

Happy Halloween! Hope you are having fun with your students today. Today is the last day to get your forms in the mail.

The request forms are available only in the October issue of the Minnesota Educator (pages 13 and 8). 

If you are a “continuing member,” you must submit your refund request by October 31. (On the form it says “postmarked” by October 31.)

If you are a “new member,” then you must ask within 30 days of signing the card. Did you keep a copy or note the date? We suggest you just send it in today. It cannot hurt. And let us know if you do not get your refund.
