Ongoing Fundraisers at Valley
Many of the programs that your child will benefit from are funded directly from the PTA. These programs include assemblies, family nights, bus transportation for field trips, computers, playground equipment and much, much more. You can help with our ongoing, year-round “Raising Funds Without Fundraising” program. Please read below to see how your help will directly affect your child’s experience. RAISING FUNDS WITHOUT FUNDRAISING is different from our other fundraisers. This requires VERY LITTLE EFFORT on your part. Thanks for your participation!
eScrip Fundraising Program
This is an easy, year-round fundraiser that you don’t have to buy anything you don’t want. You do need to register each year to keep current. Go online to www.escrip.com (Group ID – 137330590) and enter your email address if you have registered in the past. During the registration process you are asked to register grocery or drug store cards, and credit/debit cards that you use when you shop and dine out. When you use any of these registered cards with an eScrip merchant, they pay-it-forward by donating a percentage of your purchase amounts to your chosen organizations. Remember to use your cards for every purchase, shop with eScrip merchants and you will automatically earn money for your school or nonprofit. If a parent travels a lot for work or you dine out often, the funds add up rapidly. This is a safe and easy way to support Valley Elementary.
Box Tops - For every box top collected, Valley will receive $.10. Box Tops can be found on Pillsbury, General Mills, Betty Crocker, Nature Valley, Yoplait yogurt, Old El Paso, Lloyds Barbeque, Totino’s Pizza Snacks, Gold Medal and Bisquick products. This money is used to annually replenish playground equipment.
Campbell's Labels for Education™-This program is an easy, fun way to help Valley Elementary get free educational merchandise, including computers, sports/fitness equipment and musical instruments. Just collect and turn in to the school office.
