Fundraising is a crucial component of our PTA’s mission to enhance the lives of our children and teachers. Our funding helps to fill the gaps in our school budget. One of the ways you can help raise money for our school — many at no cost to you! — is to participate in the programs below. Please share this info with family members, neighbors and friends who can also link their grocery and retail accounts. As you can imagine, these dollars add up quickly!!

Box Tops Go a Long Way
Start cutting out box tops now (found on tons of products you buy at the grocery store) and keep them in a Ziploc bag. We’ll put the request out several times a year to send them in with your child and our PTA volunteers will do the rest to ensure we receive $.10 for each box top collected!
Come out for good food and fellowship with your Douglas family, and raise money for our school at the same time. These events are held at neighborhood locations, so you’ll be supporting local businesses, and a portion of the profits go to Douglas. Be sure to mention you are a Douglas Elementary family at each event so we get credit!
Twice a year, the Douglas PTA partners with Scholastic to host our book fairs. Our spring and fall book fairs allow students time to browse with their classes and make wish lists for parents. After class preview days, we invite families to shop together during our sales days.
Fall Fair: November 8-16, 2018
Spring Fair: April 4-11, 2019
