This is our biggest and most important fundraiser, and we ask that ALL McAlpine families contribute. 100% of the funds raised stay at McAlpine!

The 2019 Everyone Counts Campaign will run from August 26th – October 18th.Donate
Help Support McAlpine Elementary School
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! To donate to the ECC, DOWNLOAD THIS FORM. To donate online, CLICK HERE to log in to your Pay4SchoolStuff account.
McAlpine earns 10¢ for each qualifying Box Tops label…and now the Box Tops program is going DIGITAL!
That’s right, they are phasing out the physical Box Tops 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!
You will still see traditional Box Topson store shelves while some products transition over to the new digital platform. McAlpine will still earn 10¢ for each physical Box Top clip, so please keep clipping those and send all unexpired Box Tops to school with your child!
Visit www.boxtops4education.com for more information and to download the Box Tops App.
You can also easily earn money for McAlpine every time you place an Amazon order! Shopping through smile.amazon.com and choosing McAlpine PTO as your charity of choice gives you the same experience as Amazon shopping, but with the added benefit that Amazon will donate a portion of the purchase price to McAlpine. AmazonSmile is a simple and automatic way for you to support McAlpine each time you shop on Amazon, with no cost to you!
Visit smile.amazon.com, select “McAlpine Elementary School PTO.” Or CLICK HERE to go directly to smile.amazon.com in support of McAlpine PTO.
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!
Hosted by local restaurants, these evenings offer food and fun for students. On the designated night, the host restaurant donates a portion of the proceeds from purchased food directly to our school. Last year, we raised around $3000 through this program. You can support us in this fundraiser by bringing your family members to the designated restaurant that night and mentioning that you are a McAlpine family. It’s that easy…and it’s a fun night out with other McAlpine families!
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! Our 2019 Fall Family Fun Night will take place on Friday, October 4th in the fields behind McAlpine! We hope to see you there!
This “fun run” is our second biggest fundraiser of the year. Children gather pledges each Spring from family, friends, and neighbors to raise money as the students run, walk, skip or jump laps on the McAlpine fields. We will be working with Boosterthon to make the McAlpine Mile a fun and exciting event for students and families alike, while also providing character education opportunities for our students as they prepare for the run. 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!
