SUPPORT OUR SCHOOL

The PTA cannot continue our great work to enrich the lives and education of our children without your support. Please read on to see how you can help, often just by doing the things we do every day like buying groceries or shopping online. Remember… it only takes a moment to make a significant contribution that may last a lifetime!

McCaffrey’s Receipt Rebate Program The Dutch Neck PTA get a 1% rebate on the amount you spend at McCaffrey’s Supermarkets. Simply save your register receipts and send them to school periodically in an envelope or zip-lock bag labeled PTA-GROCERY REBATES. And if you happen to be at school, there are 2 boxes in the front office for drop offs. One small box is located by the visitor sign in book and the other tall red box is located by the door of the front office. Please remember receipts expire 6 months from the purchase date.

 

Boxtops for Education Many General Mills food products have a “Boxtops for Education” symbol on them. Cut these boxtops out and send them in an envelope labeled PTA-Boxtops.We do not need the whole boxtop for the Betty Crocker points.

 

 

Just Write a Check Campaign  For five years now, the Dutch Neck Parent Teacher Association’s (PTA) primary fundraiser has been the Just Write A Check Campaign. This campaign insures that 100% of your generous donations come back to the children of Dutch Neck instead of more traditional fundraisers in which only a fraction of the monies collected directly impact our children. In recent years, thanks to your overwhelming generosity, we have been able to donate as much as $13,000 per year to Dutch Neck School. This one-time, tax deductible check to the Dutch Neck PTA will help ensure that all of our children will be afforded the opportunity to grow from these programs and activities. Please be as generous as your family budget will allow. Your contribution will be kept completely confidential.Our goal is to have 100% of our Dutch Neck families participate in this campaign.
