Why are we planning both the Donation Drive and Fundraisers? Based on feedback from both parent and teacher surveys, the general consensus is some want only fundraisers, others want only donations and some want both. With a strong donation drive and a few successful fundraisers, we are able to offer a compromise to meet our goals and offer the planned educational enhancements for the children of Morrisville. Also, some parents feel that participation in fundraisers offer learning experiences by means of communication skills and the importance of raising money to support worthy causes as well as create a sense of ownership in their school.
Donation Drive - This is by far our most profitable fundraiser of the year! This gives you an opportunity to donate by way of your membership application, online, or just by contacting a PTA member. Donít forget to sign up for a company-matching donation if your employer participates.
Morrisville families start/continue clipping and saving all your General Mills Box Tops for Education. Box Tops is a easy way to earn cash for our school. Simply clip and save the small Box Top found on most General Mills products, including Big G cereal, Pillsbury Refrigerated items, Old El Paso, Green Giant and many, many more.
Send In Your Donations
For those of you that prefer to send in donations, you can print out the donation form. Once completed, simply send it in to your child's teacher who will turn it in to the PTA.
