The Need for Fundraising
Fundraising is instrumental in providing programs and services for our school. These programs and services include the Artist in Residence Program, BackPack Buddies, Assemblies, Student Store, Assistance with Field Trips, School Community Events. PTA funds are also used for technology, teacher allotments, school equipment, and grade level funds.
School events and programs will look a lot different this year, but are still supporting the school. There are some easy fundraising opportunities, that can passively earn money for our school. See details below.
Roadrunner Nights Out
Roadrunner Nights Out are fundraisers we have scheduled with restaurants or other businesses in our area. Your participation helps earn our school donations from these businesses. You can check our event calendar for the next one.
Other ways to earn money for our school
All BottleDrop money is used to help with the 5th Grade BizTown field trip.
How does it work?
Fill your bags with Oregon deposit containers. If you’re not sure what to put in your BottleDrop Bag, visit the Oregon Liquor and Cannabis Commission Bottle Bill page for a list of eligible beverage types.
We have found that each filled BottleDrop bag averages about $7-$8 after fees.

The Box Tops program online now. There are a few Box Tops you can still clip, but mostly you will need to download the app and scan receipts.
The PTA will receive 10 cents for every Box Top collected and submitted. They add up quickly and surprisingly these Box Tops can bring in a lot of money for our school. The money goes to support all of the PTA programs.
