This year we are excited to be partnering with a fun, free, and truly easy fundraiser called Shoparoo! Schools nationwide are already earning hundreds and even thousands every year through Shoparoo and it’s a great opportunity for us to really make a difference this year!
Shoparoo is school fundraising made easy: the free app turns pictures of your everyday shopping receipts into cash donations and sweepstakes entries for our school! Yep, it’s that simple. All you have to do is shop as you normally do, snap pictures of your receipts with the app, and voila Just shop, snap, earn!
Get started today:
- Download the free Shoparoo app from the Apple App Store or Google Play Store
- Select our school from the list and start taking pictures of your receipts - shop anywhere, buy anything!
- You can even select a grade to support and have fun with grade competitions!
There’s no limit to how much money we can raise with Shoparoo - the more supporters, the more we will raise for our school. Schools with just 40 supporters are earning an average of $1,000 every year. That’s free, easy money that we could be fundraising too. Check out shoparoo.com to learn more about this awesome app!

WHAT IS PTA?
The Parent Teacher Association is intended to facilitate participation in school, build a relationship between students, teachers and the community. The biggest factors in student success are active and engaged families, educators and community. The PTA funds field trips for each grade level, plans and pays for educational programs and assemblies, runs the Rasor Book Fair, puts on fun family events, organizes and pays for teacher appreciation activities, coordinates volunteers, and works with teachers and administrators to help wherever help is needed throughout the school year.
