One key role of the PTL is to raise funds to support the school; enabling support beyond what is offered by tuition funds and support from Trinity Lutheran Church. There are many ways you can get involved - some with very little effort. Participation from each family results in more money for our school! All earnings are applied back to the school in some capacity and help keep tuition costs down.
Here are some key fundraisers going on at Trinity:
Our biggest fundraiser of the year kicks off soon after the school year and includes students selling homemade pizzas and/or collecting free-will donations. The fundraiser has been a huge success due to the support of our school and church families. Incentives are set to encourage students to participate in the fundraiser, which have included monetary or gift card prizes in the past. Pizzas are made with love by numerous volunteers on a Saturday morning. Be alert for fundraising details! Earnings from the fall fundraiser have been used by PTL on school improvements (new water fountains, recycling bins, playground upgrades, etc.).
Box Tops for Education (Classroom Competition)
Your home and office contains numerous items that could help Trinity earn free cash! Box Tops for Education are small markings on various name brands (General Mills, Nature Valley, Ziploc, Hefty, Paper Mate, etc) and each Box Top earns Trinity 10 cents. These add up quick, so just look for the logo and clip. At times, Bonus Box Tops are available on various products or in stores.
Save the Box Tops throughout the year and submit quarterly in the classrooms for classroom competitions. The classroom that collects the greatest number of Box Tops each quarter wins the traveling Cookie Jar Trophy and a cookie treat on a select day. Engage family and friends in saving and we all win! Box Tops can be placed in the jar in your child’s classroom. Collection dates will be announced throughout the year.
Check out www.btfe.com for coupons on box top products or download the Box Tops Apps for additional ways to earn extra Box Tops. Money earned from Box Tops is received twice a year and applied to various expenses and events hosted by PTL.
