Released by the Tyler ISD:

Beginning January 25th, elementary school students of Tyler ISD will be selling discount cards to raise money for their campuses and the Tyler ISD Foundation. Again this year, Great American Opportunities, represented by Joe Arciniega, will organize the fundraiser for the campuses.

The discount cards are sold for $10 dollars each and offer great deals to local businesses such as Dairy Queen, Andy's Frozen Custard, SportClips, Ci Ci's Pizza and Sonic, just to name a few.

"This fundraising opportunity gives each elementary campus a chance to raise private dollars for campus projects as well as support the Tyler ISD Foundation which funds teacher grants and events, such as the Teacher of the Year and Convocation among others. Our students get involved with the process of raising dollars to support the programs and projects that are innovative and vital to an outstanding education," said Larry Goddard, Executive Director of the Tyler ISD Foundation.

The safety of the elementary school students is very important to the school district and the Tyler ISD Foundation, so students are asked to sell to people they know or for their parents to take the discount cards to their businesses. The cards will be available for purchase from January 25th – February 4th.

"Great American is excited about working with the Tyler ISD Foundation and their respective elementary schools. The card gives families a great opportunity to support their school, while helping local businesses and saving money at the same time!" said Joe Arciniega, of Great American Opportunities. "In fact, the cost of the card can be easily recaptured by using it just a handful of times. We appreciate all the fine business establishments who have partnered with us in this project and hope their businesses will flourish with the use of the card."

Proceeds of the sales of the card will go to the discretionary use of the principals at each participating elementary school and the area of greatest needs as determined by the Tyler ISD Foundation Board of Directors, according to Goddard.
