Soft Fundraising = Doing what you do anyways but helping AES while you do it!
There are many ways to help our school that don’t include writing a check!! The Education Rewards Committee within PTO focuses on earning money for Alpharetta Elementary by participating in programs sponsored by retailers that we are all familiar with. All of these programs focus on making our AES families aware when they are shopping at stores where they already shop and buying products they already buy. Currently we support the following five programs. Click on the links below to find out how they each work.
The PTO uses these the funds & points obtained through the programs listed to directly benefit our children & our school. The funds allow the PTO to provide a variety of things (field trips, events, books, supplies, etc.), while the points help to purchase much needed supplies (digital camera & a DVD for art, PE, classrooms, etc.). Thank you for your support.
AmazonSmile is a simple and automatic way for you to support AES every time you shop, at no cost to you.

10 TOPS = $1.00 for our school!! Simply clip the Box Tops cleanly along the dotted lines, being careful not to cut off the expiration date, and turn them in to your Box Tops coordinator during our periodic collection drives; Our goal for AES this school year is $4,000 (that’s only 50 Box Tops per child).
