Box Tops

Palouse Prairie previously did Box Tops for Education. Did you know we didn't actually stop?!
Instead of getting physical tops now ( I know, I loved those too), they are recorded through an app by scanning your paper or digital receipt. You can scan the QR code on the flyer below and add Palouse Prairie School as the recipient.

The lifetime earnings of PPCS is $3093.00. So those Box Tops add up!!!! Let's start scanning again and earn some money for our school! Any questions? Ask Heather Flynn @Parent CREW with Box Top Question in subject line

Online Book Fair Nov. 2-14th

Parent Crew is excited to host a book fair so that you can get some fun and educational books for your students before the holidays AND we can raise money for our school and teachers. Sonya Bramwell is the Usborne and More representative we will be working with for the books and cards for a cause fundraisers. Stay tuned, if you don't prefer Usborne, we plan to host both an in-person Scholastic and BookPeople book fairs in the spring.

There are two aspects to this event:

1. Typical Book Fair in which family and friends buy books and the school gets 50% of the sales back to use on Usborne books for the classroom. You, (plus, your friends and family) can order online using this link, and your books will be shipped to you in 7-10 days for a flat rate of $6.95. You can start shopping here: https://a13102.myubam.com/2465861

2. Cards for a Cause - These card sets (Holiday, Birthday, All Occasions, and Blanks, see image below for more info) contain 30 cards for $30, and our school will get $15 for each box sold. This means, If we can sell 10 boxes in each grade we will make over $1000 cash for our school. NOTE: This is a separate transaction from the online book fair. Complete this form to make your orders and bring cash or check in an envelope to the front desk at school by Nov. 14th. Your cards arrive at the school a few weeks later. You can learn more about Cards for a Cause here.

Also, it's not lost on us that we are doing TWO fundraisers simultaneously with this and Run The Palouse. We realize this has the possibility to be both confusing and annoying for parents and we will work to avoid this in the future. Please remember there is NO pressure to buy books - it's just a fun way to get more books for kids, our classrooms, AND money for our school.

Alright amazing PPCS families, Happy Book Shopping!
