Market Day raised almost $1000 last year just by parents ordering yummy, quality food from them!!!! (Can you say, EASY MONEY?!?). Please make checks made payable to Market Day, which can be written when you pick up the food. If you’re able to help unload the truck at 2pm, it would be appreciated (and little ones are welcome as well). If you would like to order, just go to their website www.marketday.com and make sure you choose Cromie Elementary as your pickup site. (It’s easy!) OR you are always welcome to send in your order sheets and we’ll input the orders for you. If you work late and need to arrange another way for your order to get to you, please just contact Wendy at firstname.lastname@example.org and she’ll be happy to help you out!
Save for $$
- Box Tops for Education Make sure you send in your clipped boxtops!
- Campbell’s Labels for Education Send in your clipped UPC labels!!
- Capri Sun – Be Green, Earn Green This program had been started, but we need a new chair for it. The way it works is that every time your child has a Capri-Sun at the school, they will go into a special bin where they will be cleaned and sent off to a recycling program where we earn 2 cents for each one we send in. If we don’t get someone to chair this, then the program can’t be done.
- Market Day: We need a new chair for this program. Please contact Christine Sieg if you’re interested.
- Scholastic Book Club
Stores/Sodas that Give Back
It’s one of those stories where when you’re able to get more “free” money, that means there are less fundraisers and things you have to buy! (We’re not knocking the stuff that the kids sell; we’re just saying that free money is never something to scoff at!). Here are a few programs where you can earn “free” money just by doing your usual shopping!
