Fundraising Programs

New for 2017-2018 school year: Terrific Third Thursdays!

The third Thursday of each month will be the due date for Walkathon donations, Box Tops, and gift card orders, as well as our monthly Spirit Day at the State Street Chic-Fil-A–easy to remember!

 

Walkathon

HHMS PTO relies primarily on donations through our annual Walkathon to fund the programs and services we provide to our school. Focusing on direct donations allows us to avoid the hassle of sales fundraisers. What’s more, we keep 100% of the revenue, allowing us to sink that right back into our school.

That said, we do also participate in a number of “easy fundraisers” that give us a percentage back based on what you already spend on certain products or at certain stores:

Box Tops

Many of the products you already buy at the grocery have pink “Box Tops” on them. Clipping these gives our PTO cash back.  The top classes bringing in Box Tops each semester will win prizes! To participate, we ask that you: 1) Trim around the dotted line on each Box Top (this helps us with counting), 2) Put all Box Tops in a baggie with a note inside with the student’s name on it (marker on the baggie rubs off–we learned that the hard way!), and 3) Make sure the Box Tops haven’t expired; unfortunately we can’t turn in expired Box Tops.

Kroger Community Rewards

This program is tied to your Kroger Plus card and gives us a percentage of your purchases when you use your card. Register your card with Kroger using the Highland Hills Middle School PTO ID# 12420 in order for us to receive credit. You can enroll or re-enroll online at http://www.kroger.com/communityrewards or by calling 1-800-KROGERS.

Chick-Fil-A Spirit Days

On the third Thursday of every month, Chick-Fil-A on State Street in New Albany hosts a spirit day for our PTO, giving us 10% of their sales when you tell them you’re there to support HHMS PTO. Remember to “say before you pay” that you’re there for HHMS PTO so we get credit for the sale. Valid for dine-in, carry-out, and drive-through!

Texas Roadhouse

And finally, we do offer Texas Roadhouse gift cards for sale in mid-November. Many families find these make great stocking stuffers, and PTO receives 20% on any cards purchased. Texas Roadhouse also provides us with many freebies, food, and give aways through the year that support our various programs.
