  • The PTA uses three types of fundraisers; Active, Passive and Service-based.

    Active Fundraising

    Accounts for the majority of our operating funds. Active fundraisers are designed for "big return on the dollar" donations." This includes the 100% Tax deductible Donation Drive, and APEX Fun Run.

    Passive Fundraising

    Restaurant nights, where you buy dinner at the usual cost, and the restaurant donates a percentage back to the school!

    Also includes collecting and turning in Box Tops, and shopping Ralph, Food4Less and Amazon.com and Lake benefits!

    Service Fundraising

    Involves charging for services in order to cover the costs of offering these programs/services, such as Father/Daughter Dance, Mother/Son Event and School Yearbook. The PTA does not profit in anyway from these events.   

    Help us support our students by participating in as many of the different fundraising activities as possible.
    Together we can make a difference!

    Collect Box Tops for Education

    Look for Box Tops on hundreds of participating products. Each clip is worth 10¢ for our school!
