Help Support Our Teachers
I hope your family is safe and healthy! We want to give your child the best education possible, and our teachers need your help. Due to the pandemic and tighter budgets, we need to raise funds for the essential tools our teachers need to help our students succeed.
In light of current events, student and staff safety has become our most important issue. That’s why we are partnering with a company that specializes in safe, no-contact fundraising. They have helped schools like ours raise more than $150 million dollars.
This safe and easy fundraiser is 100% online so there is no face-to-face selling, collecting money, or delivering products; and you will earn money for the school by shopping at online stores where you already shop. Participation only takes 12 minutes, and your child will win fun and exciting prizes. Every student will receive a valuable Wild Republic Hugger or earbuds, just for participating. More prizes will be rewarded when goals are reached. Please help now. It really will make a difference.
