Box Tops for School
Look for the Box Tops logo on your favorite products, from General Mills cereals to Ziploc bags and many other items as well. Clip the Box Tops “coupon” and save for periodic classroom collections.

The PTO sponsors several fundraisers throughout the year.
Back to School Social
A favorite event among students, the annual Back to School Social brings parents and students together at the start of the school year. Ice Cream is for sale, as well as food from various food trucks.
Spring Basket Raffle

Square 1 Art
Students create original artwork and family members have the option to purchase a variety of keepsakes and practical items with their child’s artwork. Each child receives a complimentary set of stickers featuring their artwork, regardless of additional purchases.
