Clinton School has an active, successful, and creative fundraising program that contributes to the well-being of our school in a wide variety of important and wonderful ways. In the last several years, the Clinton PTA fundraising program has raised tens of thousands of dollars for items including a rock-climbing wall for our gymnasium, new curtains for our auditorium, and a brand new state-of- the-art playground for our school yard. Additionally, our fundraising efforts support our extensive cultural arts assembly program, class trips, the beautification of our school (both indoors and out), and many other goods and services needed by our students, faculty, and staff.
Our fundraising campaigns include something for everyone. We have selling programs, including the the Sally Foster Holiday Catalogue, Greenraising Green-Friendly Catalogue, the David’s Cookie Dough sale, and our Annual Plant Sale. We also have activity fundraisers including the Display My Art Program, which allows you to have your child’s artwork made into a variety of wonderful items.
We have ongoing programs which require no purchase, but have the ability to earn substantial funds for our school. We participate in the General Mills Box Tops for Education Program and the Campbell’s Labels for Education Program. All you need to do is clip the designated labels from these products and send them to school in your child’s backpack. Don’t forget about our cell phone/ink cartridge recycling program sponsored by Funding Factory. That allows us to trade in your old cell phones and empty printer cartridges for points that we can trade for school merchandise.
We also participate in “purchasing power” programs including Target Take Charge of Education, that give Clinton a percentage of your purchases when you use your Target credit card. In addition, some of our local businesses contribute a percentage of your purchases to our school. The Village Trattoria (in both Maplewood and South Orange) does this all year long on a designated day of the week.
Other popular events such as the Fall and Spring Book Fair, our annual Tricky Tray and Silent Auction, our Election Day Bake Sale, and our annual spring LocoMania event help us support Clinton while we enjoy ourselves at the same time.
