Clash of the Classrooms

Our primary school fundraising event in recent years has been a fun run. For the 2020-2021 school year, the event was Clash of the Classrooms, a direct donation fundraiser where homeroom classes competed to raise funds from October 19 through November 13. Thank you to everyone whose donations helped us raise over $5000 for classroom technology!

Evergreen Orthodontic Specialists sponsored prizes of gift cards to Mr. Wooldridge's homeroom for highest overall fundraising homeroom, Holly D. for highest overall individual fundraising student, and the highest fundraising homeroom class in each grade for each week during the fundraiser:

Week 1: Buffington / Wooldridge / Williams

Week 2: Dignan / Wooldridge / Williams

Week 3: Hannawacker / Wooldridge / Williams

Week 4: Sherman / Wooldridge / Wiechec

Our PTA board additionally recognized Holly D. for the highest number of individual donations.

Other Fundraising Opportunities

See this... clip it; see this... scan your receiptWe have a collection bucket by Mrs. Jessee's window in the commons for Box Tops for Education clips, which are sent in twice a year. In recent years, the proceeds support purchasing playground balls for the recess cart, which is maintained by our counselors. The program has changed to use a mobile application where users scan their store receipt within two weeks after purchasing Box Tops products, but unexpired clips are still being accepted.

 

The PTA has coordinated additional fundraising opportunities to support the school. Some of these opportunities may still be active:

When you shop with AmazonSmile, 0.5% of every Amazon purchase you make is donated to the non-profit organization of your choice. Simply go to smile.amazon.com/ch/23-7113962 and confirm West Jefferson Middle School PTSA as your charity to support our PTA at no cost to you.

Shopping through American Furniture Warehouse with the promo code "SCHOOL" and either our school name (West Jefferson Middle School) or code (WJMS68) nets a donation of 2% back on all purchases and 4% on Simmons products. This can be done at any store location, online or by phone.

Eudaimonia Human Flourishing Center in Indian Hills offers a free trial class and a percentage of memberships that list West Jeff Middle as their referral back to our school. They offer classes for all ages, including parkour/ninja warrior-style training, mixed modality HIIT classes, yoga and therapeutic exercise classes.

Shopping through Schoola for quality gently-used clothes online nets 40% of the amount spent back to the school associated with purchased items.

Nights where local restaurants donate a percentage of their sales in a certain time period to the PTA. These are announced in the Weekly Wednesday Update and promoted on the outdoor marquee, the front page of the website, and as events on the PTA's Facebook page.
