Growing the Barretts Community One Gift at a Time
The Bobcat Dash is back!! On October 11, 2019, Barretts Elementary will host the 3rd annual Bobcat Dash Fun Run Fundraiser. This is a FUN opportunity to raise money for our school. Our kids will have 30 minutes to run, walk, skip, dance and exercise their way around the track while parents and supporters line the course to cheer them on! The best part is we keep 100% of the money you pledge right here at the school. 100% of your tax deductible donation will support the Barretts PTO which funds various items such as Arts Partners, Ways & Means grants for teachers, field trips, teacher appreciation, books for the library, capital improvements and much, much more. The PTO will still offer Barrett community events such as Progressive Dinner, Movie Night, Barretts Blast, Sign-Up Parties and the annual Trivia Night. Last school year we exceeded our goal raising over $20,000. Our goal is to raise $20,000 again this year. Register for the run and volunteer for the event: www.barretts.dojiggy.com
Our annual Trivia Night/Silent Auction will be held on March 7, 2020. This is always a fun event, which provides a great social opportunity for our families and staff while raising money to support our school. Gather your friends and form a table and look forward to a fun filled evening with other Barretts parents.
Box Tops 4 Education
Collecting Box Tops is easy...just look for them on the boxes and packages of items you already shop for at the grocer. We earn over $2,000 a year from Box Tops alone. All you have to do is cut out the Box Tops you find on products that you already purchase and start collecting them. A couple times throughout the year we ask you to send in your Box Tops and we will have a contest among the classrooms to see which classrooms collect the most Box Tops.
