Fundraising is a primary focus for our Crystal Spring PTA because it supports our teachers and students in ways that would not otherwise be possible. In addition to providing a donation yearly to each classroom to support field trips and other classroom needs, many of the funds raised come full circle supporting fun activities and events to help build a sense of school spirit and community, while enhancing the overall school experience for the students and families of Crystal Springs.

Annual Fundraiser

An innovative, new fundraiser is coming to Crystal Springs for the 2015-2016 school year. Take a sneak peek at this fall's Apex Fun Run: www.apexfunrun.com

Beginning October 5th, our kids will have the opportunity to fundraise for our school by collecting pledges for the laps they run through donations placed online and the Apex Fun Run app. But this isn't just fundraising- the kids will be experiencing two weeks of fun in school through leadership and exercise activities led by Apex and our teachers. Running (no pun intended) October 5-16, the program will conclude with a "Fun Run" during the school day so all our kids can participate regardless of their fundraising efforts!

The Apex Fun Run will be our main fundraiser for the 2015-2016 school year, taking the place of our previous cookie/gift wrap and auction.

Corporate Giving Programs

Many major corporations have made giving back to schools in the communities they serve a priority. Below are the programs Crystal Springs Elementary currently benefits from--and with a few simple steps, a percentage of your everyday shopping will come back to your students at Crystal Springs!

 

When using ANY of Target's cards, 1% of your purchases can go back to Crystal Springs! Target offers a FREE Debit Card (that also saves you 5% in their stores), in addition to their credit cards. However, you must set-up Crystal Springs to be your school of choice.

School lunch items, snacks, and everyday products from General Mills- so many items we purchase daily include a potential 10 cent donation to benefit our school. When you see a Box Tops for Education label on a product, simply clip it off and bring it into the school. We have a box in the main office and do a classroom competition drive at least one time per year to maximize what this great program provides Crystal Springs Elementary.
