The PTO Fundraising activities allow for the purchase of school equipment, such as classroom smart boards, class and all school field trips, all school assemblies and so much more!
School Fair and Auction This is our biggest fundraiser of the year and is a great time for kids and families. Throughout the year we will be collecting donations for our live auction (larger items) and a silent auction (smaller items). There are games and events during this indoor fair that the entire family can enjoy. This year , as in other years, we will need many volunteers to make it a success. Please plan on participating in this very exciting event.
Kroger Rewards Make free $$ for Costello by doing your everyday shopping. A percentage of any purchases made using your Kroger Club card will be sent to Costello PTO. Anyone can do it! Grandparents, aunts, uncles, friends, neighbors! Just visit www.krogercommunityrewards.com, click on Michigan and click on "Enroll" or "Re-enroll" to select Costello Elementary as your rewards benefactor! We average OVER $2000 a year just with this program. Registration for this program needs to be renewed ANNUALLY EVERY APRIL. Check the bottom of your Kroger receipts to ensure that Costello is your named organization.
Box Tops for Education Box Tops from General Mills Cereals, Betty Crocker, and other products can be dropped off in the box in the school lobby. These are collected and redeemed for cash (10 cents per BoxTop). This project is ongoing throughout the year. Look for more fun contests between the classrooms, which helped us earn over $1,000 last school year. Be sure to tell family and friends to clip these for us.
Restaurant Nights Throughout the school year Costello partners with various restaurants around Troy such as McDonald's, Dickie's, and Noodles. During the designated night, 15-20% of each sale goes to the Costello PTO! This is a fun way to have a family night out AND raise money for Costello!
Cash Donations Another way of supporting the Costello PTO. We welcome cash donations anytime!
Hollywood Markets - Apples for the Students Shop at any Hollywood Markets location (www.hollywoodmarkets.com) and simply give the cashier our school name and we will be credited Apples for the Students points electronically.
Please let us know if you have any ideas for other fundraising events or wish to help coordinate any of those listed above.
