The goal of the Adams PTA is to enhance the educational experience of every student at Adams. Through technology purchases, cultural arts events, teacher grants, playground updates, character education and all of our other programs, we strive to enrich the school environment for students and teachers.  In order to provide all of these programs and services, we also have to do a little fundraising.  We focus on passive fundraisers and events the kids really enjoy!  

 

It's GoPlaySave fundraising time!!   

Each GoPlaySave book has more than $10,000 worth of local savings and the cost is only $30.  Every student will bring home an envelope with a GoPlaySave book.  If you are unable to help with this fundraiser, please return the entire packet (envelope and book).  If you would like to purchase the book, please send in cash or check (made payable to Adams PTA) in the amount of $30.  People are often looking to buy the GoPlaySave book each year so please ask family, friends, neighbors or co-workers.  The envelope can be used to record additional orders.  We can also get books for the Durham/Chapel Hill area at a cost of $25.  Send in orders and payment with your student, orders will be filled atleast twice a week.  

GoPlaySave books can be purchased online through the Adams PTA custom storefront.  To get to the storefront, simply click here:  www.goplaysavetriangle.com/store/ADAMS2018  This link also gives you an opportunity to create a storefront for your student so that their online sales can be tracked.  Enter the required information and you will be given a unique URL that can be shared on social media or by e-mail.

August 15 & 22: DQ Spirit Nights

Box Tops for Education
Each Box Top that we collect is worth ten cents.  Our goal for the year is $2800 so every Box Top is very important!  Visit www.btfe.com for a list of products that carry a Box Top for Education.  There is also information about the new Box Tops app that helps earn additional Box Tops for Adams.

 Clip Box Top coupons from hundreds of participating products and send them to school....a team of PTA Volunteers will do the rest! 

Deadlines:

Any way you send your Box Tops to school is perfectly fine.  Baggies are great for transporting Box Tops (don't forget to label with the teacher's name) & some people prefer to use a form to keep track of Box Tops: ABC Form and Daydream Form.

Tyson Project A+ labels are found on Tyson products.  Each label we send in is worth 24 cents.  Please send Tyson labels to school anytime.  

Coca-Cola Give codes can be found on the tear off panel of 12 pack Coke products and on the lid of Coke product bottles.  These codes can be entered at coke.com/give and donated to Adams or you can send them in and parent volunteers will be happy to enter them for you.
