The Fun Run is an all-school event where students Sharpen their Saws as they run or walk laps during a 15-minute time frame during school hours.
The Fun Run takes place in the fall and is the PTA’s major FUNdraiser for the year. The money raised from the Fun Run benefits Longacre students by providing a variety of in-school and after-school events & activities. Many volunteers are needed to cheer on our runners.
We hold Scholastic Book Fairs in both the Fall and the Spring. The book fair is held in the media center and is a great opportunity for families to come in and shop for books while supporting our school. There are hundreds of books available in different literacy levels from pre-reading to chapter books. Scholastic donates a percentage of the proceeds back to the PTA. Payment can be made by cash, check or credit card.
Dining Days Out
Throughout the school year we organize nights out with local businesses donating back a percentage of the total purchases to our school. Watch for flyers to come home and support local businesses and our Longacre PTA.
We all shop for groceries, so why not turn those shopping trips into cash for our school. All you need to do is download the Box Tops App. Look for the logo. You can find it on hundreds of products you know and love. Tap the scan button and snap a photo of your receipt within 14 days of purchase. It’s that easy! Box Tops earnings are identified and automatically updated online.
Download the App then snap pictures of your receipts from any store to earn Roo Points (cash donations) for our school. Whether you’re shopping at a supercenter, dollar store, or local convenience store – it doesn’t matter where you shop or what items you buy – Shoparoo will make a cash donation for every receipt!
