Help PTF With Extra Income Opportunities
The Parent-Teacher Fellowship can earn extra funds through a number of programs offered by community businesses, and Prince Avenue parents can help secure the revenue by participating in the programs listed below.
Boxtops for Education: This is a great opportunity to earn extra money for our school. All you have to do is clip Box Tops and send them in to the school. Each box top is worth .10 to our school. Last school year we more than doubled the amount collected from $700 to $1494! Your child will bring a ziplock bag with 50 boxtops to their homeroom teacher. Make sure you verify the 50 by initialing the bag. To reward the students for their participation, lower school students will receive a dress down pass and K4-K5 will receive a piece of candy. The homeroom with the most boxtops collected will win an ice-cream party! Don’t forget to register online for a chance for our school to earn 500,000 boxtops. The contest is open until October 3, 2010. There are weekly drawings for 5000 boxtops. The more we enter the better our chances of winning. You may go to www.boxtops4education.com to enter and to see a list of participating products. For the month of August, Wal-Mart is offering 4 boxtops each on over 40 eligible items.
Publix: This is, by far, the best return to our school for a grocery store program. Last year we earned over $1373. There are Publix cards located in the front office to pick up if you do not have one. Give them out to friends, relatives, and neighbors. Show your card each time you check out and the school earns money. It’s just that easy!!
Office Depot: 5% of your purchase is credited to Prince Ave in the form of a merchandise credit each time you use their rewards card. Our school code is 70024622.
Kroger: Kroger has the e-labels program. Go to www.kroger.com/services/pages/school_programs.aspx to link your Kroger card to PACS. We redeem our points for merchandise.
Ingles: By swiping your Ingles’ rewards card, our school earns money that can be redeemed for school supplies and merchandise. You will have to link your card to PACS. You may link your card at www.ingles-markets.com/toolsforschools or send us an email with the 12 digit code found on the back of the rewards card. Our school code is 10120. Also Ingles will begin automatically awarding our school with boxtops when you check out using your rewards card beginning August 22.
