UPCOMING FUNDRAISING OPPORTUNITIES

FOR LAKE ELMO ELEMENTARY PTA 

 

 
Lake Elmo Elementary will be participating in Give to the Max Day on THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 19TH to raise money for the PTA.  We're asking students to reach out to friends and family to donate.  
 

Give to the Max Day is a special 24-hour period to highlight the important work of nonprofits across Minnesota and raise funds for their causes.  As a bonus, your Give to the Max Day donation will be eligible for random drawings to have extra money added to Lake Elmo PTA! 

Grade levels will compete for a chance to win free Scholastic books for their classrooms.  Two individual student prizes will be handed out, as well: 1.) Top earning student and 2.) One student donor/earner chosen in a random drawing.

 

If we reach our goal of $13,000, this will be our final major fundraiser of the year.   

 

We will have more details for families in a separate email, as well as in the Lake Elmo Messenger. 

 


 READ A THON

 In October 2019, Lake Elmo kicked off its first Read a Thon.

Students collected pledges leading up to our Read a Thon event on Halloween, where special guest readers visited the classrooms. 

 

SPRING CARNIVAL

Our spring carnival is a beloved community tradition.

The day is packed with games, treats, and an exciting silent auction and raffle.

  This event wouldn't be possible without generous donations from local businesses and families.

 

SCHOLASTIC BOOK FAIR

The Lake Elmo PTA hosts three Book Fairs throughout the school year, where parents, students, and teachers can stock up on books and supplies for the home or classroom. 

A portion of all sales goes back to the school.

 

SQUARE1 ART

Working in partnership with our Artist in Residence, students create original works of art that Square1 can create into a variety of keepsakes, stationery, and more. Orders are delivered in time for the holiday giving season.

 

HOLIDAY BAKE SALE AND BAZAAR

From delicious home-baked goodies to shopping opportunities from some of your favorite direct-buy retailers, this December shopping event is not to be missed.

 

DINE-OUT

In addition to our monthly Culver's night at the Stillwater Culver's restaurant, we also partner with a different local restaurant each month to explore their menus and raise funds while giving the “home cook” the night off.

 

BOX TOPS FOR EDUCATION

Throughout the year we collect Box Tops from participating products.  The program is switching to a digital system in which you can now redeem Box Tops using a mobile app.  

 

AMAZONSMILE
