Thanks to the generosity of our families and local businesses, the Glebe Elementary School PTA funds dozens of educational programs, teacher grants, and academic and social events over the course of the year. We appreciate everyone who gives their time and/or resources to make Glebe a great school. Our PTA is funded largely by the Annual Spring Auction & Social, which raises over 60 percent of the funds needed in a year. Other fundraisers fill-in the remainder of the budget.
FREE money fundraisers – so simple.
Do you know that you can make multiple donations this year without spending any extra money?

**Prior to the start of each school year (typically mid-August) the coordinator of this program registers for new rewards programs and re-registers for existing programs, confirming Glebe’s school information (name, address, school code, etc.) is correct, to ensure timely receipt of disbursement checks. This year, Ann Seits is the coordinator and can answer any questions.

Box Tops For Education
Collecting box tops and labels from everyday purchases also yields “free money” for Glebe. Purchasing popular brands including General Mills, Betty Crocker, Campbell’s, and Pepperidge Farm products allow us to earn easy cash for PTA-sponsored programs. Just clip the image that says “Box Tops for Education” from your purchase and drop it off in our school collection box. You also can download an app for your phone and earn bonus dollars − while buying products you use every day.
Leading this effort requires a volunteer who sends out communications asking the community for labels and then takes care of submitting them. The box tops are collected in a container that is in the front lobby. Glebe’s goal is to raise at least $1,000 from this annually. Some local schools raise as much as $2,500 to $10,000 from collecting box tops. And best of all, your student can be in charge of clipping these labels! If you’d like to help sort, cut, and prepare the box tops for submission, please contact Elizabeth Rylander. The work is a bit tedious, but volunteers can do it largely on their own schedule!
Here’s a handy list of products that offer donations for education.[pdf-embedder url=”https://www.glebepta.org/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/2017-05_BTFEProducts_List.pdf” title=”Box Tops for Education List 2017″]
