Fundraisers

Ongoing ways you can support our schools

In addition to sponsored events and activities, here are the fundraisers throughout the year that help support our students, teachers, and the whole Fountain Hills Unified School District. We hope you will take advantage of these “fun” fundraisers!

Annual Gala Event

Our largest (and most fun for adults) fundraiser is our annual PTO Gala.  This is a very special event that is held each year as a way to celebrate the parents and local community who support our organization. Usually held in February or March each year, this event includes live and silent auctions, dinner, music, dancing and more!

EPI School Supplies

Our parents love the convenience of being able to order the exact school supplies that their students need, while also raising money for the school! If we reach our sales goal, then EPI will donate $200 to our school, so every order counts. This fundraiser happens at the end of the school year for orders for the following year.

Sees Candy Drive

This is a great way to purchase gifts or show your appreciation, all by raising funds for the PTO! Orders can be taken from friends, relatives, neighbors and co-workers. A perfect gift for business associates! Famous American-made deliciousness with no added preservatives, See’s is easy to sell because people love the candy!

Stay tuned for coming details on our 2020/2021 event!

Holiday Store

This is by far a favorite event for our students! They love being able to choose gifts for the very special people in their lives. And it’s a great fundraiser for us too! The Holiday Store is provided for grades Pre-K through 8th grade with items priced from $0.25 and up. Parents can help designate amounts for their children to spend on themselves, family and friends. They will have time to shop during specified classroom times with their teacher as well as before school and during lunch time. We encourage family members to come with their children before school to shop as well.

Scholastic Book Fair

The Annual Scholastic Book Fair is a much-anticipated event for the entire district. Each year we choose a theme and decorate the libraries so that the students feel like they are stepping into a whole new world. They get so excited about the new books that will be available to them year after year.

APEX Fun Run & Drive

The APEX team of athletes does the heavy lifting and teaches PBIS-based leadership lessons. Each day during the Drive, they combine fitness, fundraising and leadership into a powerful united event that builds students’ character education. There is an easy online platform to collect pledges using your child’s specific access code that will be given out the first day of the Drive. You’ll have access to the platform throughout the two weeks so sponsors can make contributions on behalf of your student.

PTO Membership

The easiest way to support our schools is to become a PTO member. For only $20 you’ll get an incredible discount card that could save you hundreds of dollars throughout the year. Thank you to our PTO Discount Card sponsors, we couldn’t do it without you!
