Clash of the Classrooms (2020-2021 fundraiser)

In the 2020-2021 school year, the PTA ran Clash of the Classrooms, a direct donation fundraiser where homeroom classes competed to raise funds over a six-week period. The fall 2020 event raised over $5000 for classroom technology. Evergreen Orthodontic Specialists sponsored prizes of gift cards for the highest overall fundraising homeroom (Wooldridge), the highest overall individual fundraising student (Holly D.), and the highest fundraising homeroom class in each grade for each week during the fundraiser (Buffington, Dignan, Hannawacker, Sherman, Wiechec, Williams - 3 weeks, and Wooldridge - 4 weeks).

Other Fundraising Opportunities

Box Tops for EducationFor many years, the school had a collection bucket in the commons for Box Tops for Education clips; the proceeds supported purchasing playground balls for the recess cart, which is maintained by our counselors. The program has changed to use a mobile application where users scan their store receipt within two weeks after purchasing Box Tops products.
