The Fall Fundraiser (formerly the Magazine Drive) is an annual fundraising event that supports the general operating budget for the school. It typically raises over $30,000; In 2015, the Magazine Drive made a profit of $36,000!
The drive kicks off during the first weeks of school to encourage a sense of pride and community, running for about two weeks. The majority of the students participate on some level. Classrooms with the most orders win 1, 2, and 3 places daily with classroom winners at the end of the sale. Individual students with the most orders win 1, 2 and 3 places as well. Students win tickets for each order and are able to redeem them for prizes at the end of the event. Students selling a certain number of orders are eligible for the Limo to Lunch at the local McDonald’s. We celebrate the end of the fundraiser with the popular Pig Race!
The sale is organized by parent volunteers who serve as Chairs of the Magazine Drive. Other volunteers assist in delivering items to classrooms, tallying orders and money during the two weeks of the sale and being available to help with prize redemption.
