The PTA helps helps our school purchase technology, programs and materials that are not in their budget. This year we are raising money for teacher grants, technology, field trip support & more.
How it's done...
Teachers, families and local businesses work together to accomplish these goals by:
- Eating out on Restaurant Fundraiser & Social Nights
- Buying Apparel
- Donating online
- Downloading the Box Tops for Education app, then scanning receipts
- Shopping on Amazon Smile and linking Ocean View PTA as your non profit
Thanks for all you do to make our school great!
FREE Box Tops – Every dime counts! Last year the Ocean View PTA received hundreds of dollars from redeemed Box Tops. The program is transitioning from pink clip-and-submit Box Tops to scanning your own receipts for Box Tops. You can still find the small pink Box Top coupon on hundreds of products such as breakfast cereals, crackers, tissue boxes and more. Just clip out the coupons (your kids will love to do this for you) and leave them in the Box Top collection container on the counter in both Ocean View offices. But the NEW program is even EASIER! Download the Box Tops for Education app to your phone. Then, whenever you shop, open the app and scan your receipt. Ocean View PTA will receive credit for any Box Top purchases made. SO EASY!
