AmazonSmile is a simple way for you to support Hendersonville Elementary PTO every time you shop, at no cost to you. AmazonSmile is available on your web browser and can be activated in the Amazon Shopping app for iOS and Android phones. When you shop at AmazonSmile, you’ll find the exact same low prices, vast selection and convenient shopping experience as Amazon.com, with the added benefit that AmazonSmile will donate 0.5% of your eligible purchases to the charitable organization of your choice. You can choose from over one million organizations to support. Since joining this program we have received over $600 in dontations from Amazon!
On your first visit to AmazonSmile, you will need to Hendersonville Elementary PTO to receive donations from eligible purchases before you begin shopping. Amazon will remember your selection, and then every eligible purchase you make through AmazonSmile will result in a donation. AmazonSmile will occasionally contact you about donation amounts disbursed to your chosen charity or about the program.
For over 20 years, Box Tops for Education has given families an easy way to earn cash for their school, with products they already buy. Now you can simply scan your store receipt with the Box Tops mobile app to identify participating products and instantly add cash to your school’s earnings online. If you have products at home with Box Tops, which can still be cut out, we encourage you to cut them out and drop them off at the school. This program has always been a HUGE win for HES resulting in yearly earnings of anywhere between $550 – $1,000.
We’re excited to share that our school is part of the Coca-Cola Give program. This opens up Hendersonville Elementary School to new funding opportunities to help improve learning environments for students. The best part? Donations don’t come out of your own pocket. When you make Coca-Cola purchases, you simply enter the product codes and our school receives a donation.
You know the saying…”One man’s trash, another one’s treasure?” This couldn’t be more true when it comes to the earnings we receive thru this program. In the 2019-2020 school year HES received over $400 just from families turning in the bottle tops of participating Coke products as well as the codes from inside the cases of participating products. It’s super easy, you can take a picture of the codes yourself and “donate” them to Hendersonville Elementary School or you can collect the bottle tops and turn them into the HES office and we have plenty of parents who will get the codes uploaded for you.
Link your Grocery Cards
If you haven’t already please re-link your Ingles Advantage Card to their Tools for Schools program. Thanks to Ingles and all of you that linked your Ingles Advantage cards to Hendersonville Elementary, in previous years our school has received credits of over $3,000 to spend in their amazing catalogue filled with all kinds of school supplies and interactive STEM resources!!!!
Also, please re-link your Harris Teeter VIC cards to Hendersonville Elementary. This past year our earnings from Harris Teeter were over $1,000. For those of you who don’t know Harris Teeter branded products, when purchased, earn HES more money than many name brand products.
HES is also part of of the Publix Partners program. Simply sign up for a Publix.com account, click Publix Partners, and select Hendersonville Elementary School. Then enter your phone number every time you check out. Publix will give back to HES.
9th Annual Cubcat Crawl
The Cubcat CRAWL is just around the corner on Friday, October 29th. You can register for the race, purchase food and beverage tickets in advance, purchase “Leader For A Day” raffle tickets, and get all of the details at www.givebutter.com/hes. In keeping with the PTO’s “No Sales” fundraising efforts, there is also a link for you to send to family and friends to invite them to support your child’s Student Sponsorship goal.
Are you thinking that you’re “just not a runner”? No worries! I promise that you will still have fun at the CRAWL! There’s so much to do that doesn’t involve running, walking, or even crawling:
Dress up in your Halloween best and compete in the costume contest
Cheer on the runners and walkers
Let your kids play on the playground and dance with the DJ
If you have any questions about the CRAWL, please reach out to the PTO at CubcatsPTO@gmail.com.
