The PTA raises money through:
- Jog-A-Thon: The Jog-A-Thon is a fun, annual fundraiser that helps encourage an active lifestyle while raising money for favorite PTA events. This is the PTA’s largest fundraiser of the year, and the only one that depends on student participation in order to be successful. Students are invited to solicit pledges from parents, friends, family and neighbors. Our goal is for each student to raise $50 in pledges.
- Dine-Out Nights: Dine-Out Nights are a great way for our community to come together on a specified day at a variety of participating restaurants and earn a generous percentage of total sales for our PTA. Dates and locations vary and are announced throughout the school year. Examples include Burgerville, The Ram, Pietro’s, Prontobella Italian Kitchen and Cha Cha Cha! in Milwaukie.
- Scrip: The Scrip program allows you to purchase gift cards for tons of local restaurants, grocery stores and retail shops. For each purchase, our PTA earns a percentage of the price of the gift card. It’s easy and you don’t lose anything! You can use the gift cards yourself, or give them as gifts. Some families purchase gift cards for their monthly grocery shopping — money they’d be spending anyway! We also encourage families to consider buying Scrip for restaurants who participate in Dine-Out Nights so we can maximize our earning potential! Generally, Scrip order forms will be sent home in your student’s folder each month.
- BoxTops4Education: Box Tops are worth a $0.10 donation each and can be found on hundreds of common grocery products. We ask that you take the time to clip the Box Tops and turn them in at any PTA-hosted events or via your child’s folder (in an envelop marked Attn: PTA). For examples of products to be on the lookout for, or to take advantage of printable and digital coupons available on the BoxTops4Education website, click here.
