A Basket a day to count down to spring break!

Join Us for a virtual grade basket raffle during the month of March!

What are Grade Baskets?

Each grade has a theme for gift baskets and collected donated items to fit into their theme to be raffled off. Our families, students and PTO have put a lot of hard work into making these baskets. ( Some baskets may contain perishables or time sensitive items.)  Tickets are 1 for $1/ 6 for $5 and 11 for $10 and can be purchased online here.

Can I see what is in each basket?

You can view an itemized list of what each basket contains here

How does the raffle work?

On March 8th all raffle tickets will be placed into a bin. Raffle ticket holders will not be able to pick which basket their raffle tickets have a chance of winning, it will be completely random. One basket per day will be raffled off. The winning raffle ticket drawn that day will be streamed live on the PTO facebook page and also announced on the PTO facebook page as well. The winner will be contacted. That winning raffle ticket wins the basket that was assigned to that date (the winner will not choose which basket they want.) That winning raffle ticket will be removed from the bin of raffle tickets, and cannot win again. BUT if you have multiple tickets you can win multiple times! So be sure to buy multiple tickets to increase your chances of winning! There are 15 baskets being raffled off, so 15 chances to win. Winners will be responsible for obtaining winning basket from Tricia Klein.

Box Tops & Tyson Project A+

Help our school earn funds by submitting codes or coupons off of participating products!  Check out the great lists below!


Box Top$ for Education

Dear Families,

Big changes are coming to the Box Tops for Education Program, and you’re the first to know! Over the summer, you’ll begin to see some participating brands change their packaging from the traditional Box Tops clip to the new Box Tops label.
Going forward, instead of clipping from packages and checking expiration dates, all Box Tops will be earned digitally by scanning your receipt. The Box Tops for Education team is hard at work building a NEW-and-improved, user-friendly Box Tops mobile app that will be ready this summer.

The new app will feature state-of-the-art technology that allows you to scan your store receipt, find participating products and instantly add Box Tops to our school’s earnings online.  As we mentioned above, some brands have already started to update their packaging in advance. Until the new app launches, if you see the new Box Tops label on packages, you can use the current Box Tops Bonus App to earn Box Tops for that product. Simply download the app, select the bonus offer for the product you’ve purchased and scan your receipt to earn.

If you still have traditional Box Tops clips at home, be sure to send them to school. We will still earn cash for all clipped Box Tops until they expire. Better yet, once the new app launches, you can “double dip” during the packaging transition by clipping the traditional Box Tops AND scanning your store receipt containing participating products.

Thanks for helping our school get what it needs!
