How to Help
Stop and Shop A+, Price Chopper Tools for Schools, Target Take Charge of Education, Growing Local Learning programs: Link your rewards cards to Coolidge to earn funds or supplies for our school. Many times these stores require all shoppers to re-register each year. 6/2013: By registering our STOP & Shop cards, we earned $1059. By registering our Price Chopper cards, we were able to use those points to get markers, glue, pencil sharpener, a recess pack of tape, and dry erasers.

Books for Coolidge: Do you have a special event coming up, your child’s birthday or completion of 4th grade? Consider donating a book to the Coolidge Media and leaving a lasting gift. A $15 donation will allow your child, or the Media Specialist, to choose a book from the display case outside the gym. An inscription label stating your name and a personalized message from you will be added to the book. Your child will be the first one to take the newly donated book home and then it will go into circulation for everyone to enjoy. To donate a book, simply complete the Books for Coolidge form located online or you can request a hard copy of the form from the Media Specialist.
Amazon Smile: The PTO is registered with AmazonSmile. Amazon donates 0.5% of the price of your eligible AmazonSmile purchases to the PTO. Same products, same prices, same service as Amazon. Support us by starting your shopping at http://smile.amazon.com/ch/22-3072106.
School Store: With the help of PTO volunteers and parent donations 4th graders run a school store for their peers. We are always in need of fun erasers, pencils and other school supplies to replenish our inventory. Dollar Store items are welcome! If you have anything to donate, please send it to school in a bag labeled “School Store.” There is also a box in the front hallway to place donations.
Collect the following items and send them in with your child, to the attention of the PTO.
Boxtops for Education: You can find the familiar 10¢ Box Tops coupon on hundreds of your family’s favorite products, including General Mills, Kleenex, Huggies and Ziploc. Clip them off the product packaging and send them into school in sets of 10, either taped to a sheet or in a baggie. Be sure to include your child’s name, grade, and teacher to be entered into the monthly prize raffle. 6/2013: We received checks totaling $1819.60 from collecting BOXTOPS.
Coca Cola points: Send in Coca-Cola bottle caps from any Coke product and the inside label from any 12 pack Coke product. These items can be sent into the office anytime throughout the school year. These are all worth points that the school can use for school equipment such as science projects, art supplies, books, and playground equipment. 6/2013: Coolidge was able to use our Coke Rewards to get pencils and Dry Erase Cleaner.
