Volunteer & Fundraising Support
All of our fundraisers and events are made possible by volunteers. Teachers and staff also appreciate parent help. We’d love to have your assistance. Contact the PTO at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any time to give.
Past fundraising projects have included a Yankee Candle catalog, Square 1 Art, SpiritWear apparel, Spring Fling, Tracks for Technology, Breakfast with the Easter Bunny, and many others.
How to Help
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. By registering our Price Chopper cards, we were able to use those points to earn equipment and supplies for the school. By registering our Stop and Shop cards, the school will earn cash donations for the school.
- Stop and Shop A+ – Register your Stop & Shop card to earn points that earn cash donations for Coolidge School. Visit www.stopandshop.com/school-rewards to register your card. Our school ID is #05905. The program runs from September 7, 2018 – March 16, 2019.
- Price Chopper Tools for Schools – Register your Price Chopper card to earn points that Coolidge School can use to purchase supplies for the school. Visit www.pricechopper.com/tools-schools to register. Our school ID is #14260. The program runs from August 12, 2018 – December 29, 2018 so register your cards now to start earning!
- Growing Local Learning – Shaw’s has teamed up with Box Tops for Education to allow shoppers to earn cash for their school with Bonus Box Tops for qualifying purchases. To register, visit www.growinglocallearning.com/register. Save your Shaw’s receipts to enter codes on the site above; codes are at the bottom of the receipts.
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 $20 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.
Consider helping Coolidge by making a tax-deductible donation. We welcome all donations, large and small. Please check with your company’s Human Resources department to find out if a Matching Gift program is offered. Have you considered making a donation in someone’s name as a gift? You can download and print this card to present the special person you are honoring.
