Kroger Cards Help Generate BIG MONEY for Our School

Kroger donates 4% of all money you spend after you scan your Kroger Plus card as long as you connect the Plus card to our Longbranch PTA account.

If 400 families connected their cards and spent $100 a week at Kroger, each family would make $4 per week. That's $1600 a week.That's $19,000 a quarter. That's unreal. That's plain and simple easy money.

We encourage you to visit Kroger.com and create an account. Click Community Rewards. Search for Longbranch and connect your plus card with Longbranch PTA. It's the EASIEST fundraiser you'll ever participate in, period.


Popcorn Fridays

If you have not filled out your popcorn Friday form it's still not too late! The form can be found on the PTA website at www.longbranchpta.org and sent to school in your child's folder!

$5.00 per child covers all 9 of our popcorn Fridays.

The next one will take place on Thursday October 6th due to Friday being our Fall Break.
