When you link your Harris Teeter VIC Card to McAlpine, our school earns money every time you buy Harris Teeter brand products. Simply ask the cashier to link your VIC Card to McAlpine’s school ID #1118 next time you check out at Harris Teeter, or CLICK HERE to link your card online. McAlpine typically earns well over $1000 each year from this program!
Make sure you tell grandparents, neighbors and other friends to link their VIC card to McAlpine (#1118).
And please remember that this program runs from August through May each year, so everyone MUST re-link their card each August!

Our annual Boosterthon event is the second biggest fundraiser of the year for our school. Instead of our usual fun run (The McAlpine Mile), this March students will participate in DANCE FIT -- 35 minutes of fitness, dancing, and moving! Students will have the opportunity to gather pledges from family, friends, and neighbors to raise money for some great new campus improvements such as an awning for the front entrance and carpool areas, and an outdoor classroom!
This will be a fun and exciting event for VIRTUAL and IN-PERSON students. It will also provide character education opportunities for our students as they prepare for the event. They will be learning about Teamwork, Care, Courage, Grit, and Celebration from REAL kid-athletes!
The event will kick-off with a virtual pep rally on March 17, and the Dance Fit event will take place on Friday, March 26. This all-inclusive program promotes fun, fitness and community regardless of a child’s participation with pledges – every single McAlpine student receives a t-shirt, and prizes are available to all who participate!
Register your child at funrun.com, and share your child's fundraising link to your family & friends!
Hosted by local restaurants, these evenings offer food and fun for students. On the designated night, the host restaurant donates a portion of each purchase to McAlpine. Last year, we raised over $3000 through this program. Take the night off of cooking to support our school and these local businesses! All of the restaurants hosting our Eagles Night Out events this year also offer COVID-friendly features like take-out, online ordering, and outdoor patios!
The “ECC” is our biggest and most important fundraiser. Rather than ask your child to sell products door-to-door and only receive a portion of the proceeds from their hard work, we simply ask families to make a financial donation to the McAlpine PTO each Fall. This allows 100% of the money raised to stay at McAlpine to fund classroom and school-wide needs! Your donation is completely tax deductible, and many employers will even match your donation. We hope that you’ll consider the impact your financial gift can make on our school through this easy and convenient $20,000+ direct-give capital campaign. Through the Everyone Counts Campaign, every single donation, no matter how large or small, is an opportunity to invest in the McAlpine community and your child’s future!
For more information about the Everyone Counts Campaign, download this flyer.
To donate to the ECC using your Pay4SchoolStuff account, click here to log in to your P4SS account or to create a new P4SS account.
If you are unable to donate online with a credit card, please email mcalpineptoECC@gmail.com to arrange an alternate donation method.
To make a Corporate Matching Gift or Payroll Deduction, complete this form and then follow your employer's procedure for making matching gifts or payroll deductions. It is very important that you fill out our form, as we may not be notified of your company's donation for several months! Thank you for taking the extra steps to double your investment!
McAlpine earns 10¢ for each qualifying Box Tops label…and now the Box Tops program is going DIGITAL!
That’s right, physical Box Tops are being phased out to make it simpler for schools to earn money. Download the ALL-NEW Box Tops for Education App, shop as you normally would, then simply scan your store receipts to find participating products. The app will automatically credit McAlpine for your Box Tops purchases! Plus, the app provides a lot of special bonus offers to take advantage of!
Visit www.boxtops4education.com for more information and to download the Box Tops App.
This fun night out for our students and their families has become a favorite event each year. Local businesses sponsor the fun outdoor activities, and area restaurants provide food and give McAlpine a portion of their food sales. Buying a wristband gives you access to inflatables, games and other fun activities like “Pie Your Teacher” (that’s right...you get to toss pies at your teachers!). There is a DJ, raffle, silent auction, bake sale and plenty of other fun for the entire family.
Due to COVID-19, we will not be able to host Fall Family Fun Night this year...but we expect to bring it back next year bigger and better than ever!
