Thanks in part to a wonderful team of parents who make up the PTO and YOU, we budget over $60,000 per year on the three elementary schools in the Alma district!
The Spring PTO Fun Run
Don't like selling? We've got the answer - the Spring PTO Fun Run! Rather than ask families and friends to purchase something, participants solicit simple flat-rate "pledges" from families and friends. This incentive-based fundraiser has been incredibly successful, and last year we raised over $50,000! At the completion of the fundraiser is the Fun Run activity. The "track" will be at each of the schools, and on the day of the Fun Run, each classroom will run/walk for about 20 - 30 minutes while jamming to some cool tunes! This is done on a school day and during school hours so we can ensure that all students have the opportunity to participate.
If you would like to help out with organizing our Spring PTO Fun Run, please contact the PTO President, Stephanie Truckner, via email.
Digital Box Tops for Education
Supporting our schools year-round is as easy as scanning your receipts when you buy groceries, school supplies, and household goods! All of the traditional clipped label programs have ended, but Box Tops for Education continue on in digital format. You can scan printed receipts into their app or submit electronic receipts via email. And every month there are new bonus offers to raise even more money when you stock up on selected products! For more information on the Box Tops program and app, go to BTFE.com. You can find a full list of participating products here. As long as you select one of our three Alma elementary schools (Luce Rd, Hillcrest, or Pine Ave) as your designated school, all of your digital Box Tops earnings will go to the PTO.
We are always looking for good ways to raise funds! To share your idea, come to a meeting or submit it here!
