Each classroom is transformed into an art gallery full of marvelous works. Hundreds of guests come out to purchase special items produced by the classes for sale in the Gallery Store, and to bid on the incredible items in our silent auction and raffles.

Parents can send Box Tops to school throughout the year. Once a month, a classroom volunteer trims, counts and bags valid Box Tops. The committee packages and mails all Box Tops twice a year as directed by Box Tops for Education guidelines. This has been a very successful fundraising activity for Plew.
Each year, approximately $2000 is raised for the school from Box Tops. Your help and scissors are needed to continue to make this a success. Remember, we're saving Box Tops, NOT any Campbell's soup labels.

It's as easy as getting a pizza once a month to help out the school! Pizza Night is scheduled for the first Tuesday of the month.
Order pizza from Hungry Howie's Pizza and Subs (located in the Oak Creek Shopping Center) and Marcos Pizza (located at The Crossing shopping plaza).
This is a total freebie for Plew, no costs associated, and we will receive 20% of the profits. The class with the most sales (over a $100 minimum) will get a pizza party each month! Look for the Pizza Night Flyers that will be sent home.
The Coca-Cola Give program is another way for you to raise money for our school. Just save your caps and carton codes from any Coca-Cola product (this also includes Dasani water) and send them to school with your child. Should you wish to donate directly, you can go to their web-site: us.coca-cola.com/give/ to enter your codes. FAQs
Last year we spent $20,000+ on the new Kindergarten playground, $6,000+ in the Media Center, $5,000+ in the Art Class and $10,000+ in the classrooms. This year we are planning on or have already funded a concrete pad for the older student’s playground with recess equipment (balls, jump ropes, etc.) to keep them active, a gate to secure our campus, STEM materials and outdoor seating. Every year is different based on the needs of the students and the school.
The parents do! We have a budget, and we vote on where the money goes. Teachers and staff can request money for special projects.
