One aspect of the Olde Creek PTA’s mission is to provide financial support for assemblies, field trips, author visits, clubs, family nights, technology, and many other educational opportunities and resources for our children and the school. Thus, the PTA plans several fundraising activities and events throughout the school year. Below is a description of the major fundraisers planned for 2016-2017. We invite you to join the PTA and contribute your ideas on how the money raised this year may best be spent.
Laps for Learning: (September) Current Olde Creek students and alumni obtain sponsors to support their completion of a 5K run/race that begins and ends at the school. This fun and fit fundraiser is our largest income-producing campaign of the year.
Family Dinner Nights: (4-6 times per year) Olde Creek families and their friends dine out at a local restaurant on a designated evening. The restaurant contributes a percentage of the evening’s profits from Olde Creek families and friends back to the school.
Amazon.com: (Year-round) Consider placing your Amazon.com orders via the Amazon icon on the OCES PTA website (http://www.oldecreekpta.org). A portion of all purchases benefits the OCES PTA.
Halloween Howl: (October) One of the most anticipated events of the year, the Howl is a fun-filled evening of games, prizes, refreshments and dancing.
Square One Art: (Spring) An opportunity to turn your child’s art work into a variety of items perfect for gift-giving and holidays.
Grocery Programs: (Year-round) Designate Olde Creek as your school of choice through Target’s Redcard, Giant’s A+ BonusBucks, and/or Safeway’s Club Card programs and ½ – 3% of your purchases will be contributed to Olde Creek. Register your cards online via the PTA website (http://www.oldecreekpta.org).
Box Tops 4 Education: (Year-round) For every Box Top clipped and sent in to school from your favorite qualifying products, Olde Creek receives 10¢; each book purchase from Barnes and Noble through the Box Tops Reading room earns up to 6% back to Olde Creek. You can even shop at over 60 online stores including Lands End and JC Penney through the Box Tops Marketplace and contribute to Olde Creek at the same time.

Depending on need, the PTA may consider additional fundraising campaigns.
