The PTA must generate revenue to support our vision of enhancing the school experience for our school community. We have selected the following channels to make this effort as efficient as possible.
- School Supply Packs (Done)
- Spirit Wear
- Go Play Save Coupon books
- Restaurant Nights
- Art Fundraiser (your students are on various items)
We are hopeful that our corporate neighbours and parent employers will support our efforts and be proud to make donations.

Box Tops for Education program
Parkside Elementary is now enrolled in the Box Tops for Education program. For those familiar with the program please send in your clippings you have saved up over the summer anytime during the school year. For families new to the program, look out for pink box tops on products you buy at the grocery store and send them in with your child to school, each one earns 10 cents for Parkside. There are BIG CHANGES coming to the Box Top program. They are phasing out the box tops that you clip from the boxes and moving towards an all digital program. This is great for us because that means we get credit instantly! Here’s what it means for you: *If you are shopping and you see a box top on a product that you buy still clip it and send it into school before the expiration date. We can still get credit for those. *Download the new and improved BTFE app and scan any grocery receipt that you have that has purchased box tops products on it. For those families that may have used this app at prior schools be sure to change your school affiliation to Parkside Elementary. That means that while some products still have the box tops on them we will be getting double the money for them until the new packaging comes out!!! I challenge everyone to download the app and just give it a try. It is very simple to use and once your receipt is accepted you get confetti on your screen! Who doesn’t love confetti!🎉🎉 Also consider encouraging friends or family also sign up in the app and help Parkside earn even more. THANK YOU!!! And please let us know if you have any questions here or feel free to e-mail our Box Top Coordinator, Erin Simmons at BoxTops@parksidepta.net
