We are looking forward to a great school year. We have posted upcoming event dates on the PTA calendar, we look forward to seeing you there. PTA is always looking for new ideas/suggestions and help. If you would like to offer anything please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Students at Mayo need better access to current technology! Due to budget constraints over the last several years, Mayo is lacking sufficient computer access for its students and teachers. We are asking for your help to purchase twenty-five Chromebooks and a secure charging cart for teachers and students to use throughout the school.
In order to make this purchase, we need to raise $8000 and we hope to raise it FAST! That’s where you can help. Instead of holding a traditional fundraiser in which only a portion of the proceeds comes back to the students we are asking you to directly donate to our Technology Fund.
If every family at Mayo donated just $25 or reached out to one more donor, we would reach our goal this year and we will be set to use them in the fall. If your company has a matching gift program, please take advantage of that opportunity to double your donation!
We are hoping we can count on you to help us reach our goal and purchase twenty-five Chromebooks before the end of the school year. Additional funds above our goal will be used to purchase additional technology in our classrooms.
Our PTA is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, making your donation tax deductible.

- Our school is listed as Dr. Leroy E Mayo Elementary
- Collection sheets are preferred, as they are a great help in the counting process (but we will take them anyway they come!)
- Always include your name and grade on the sheets
- Tape is the best way to stick the Box Tops onto the sheets. PLEASE DO NOT STAPLE!
- You can make as many copies of a collection sheet as you like
- Bonus Box Top coupons (these usually have a code or say something along the lines of “3 Bonus Box Tops” or “5 Bonus Box Tops”) should not be included on a collection sheet. Please send these in a ziplock bag with your name on it.
Collection sheets are available to download. It does not matter what sheet you use throughout the year.
Thank you for your support!
Scrip Gift Card Fundraiser
Scrip is simply a word that means “substitute money” – in other words, Scrip is gift certificates from national and local retailers. They’re the same gift certificates that you buy at the store. Many popular retailers participate in our Scrip program including LL Bean, The Gap, Kohl’s, Dunkin Donuts, Panera, Red Robin and many, many others.
You’re probably asking yourself how these stores help us raise money. It’s simple—Scrip participating retailers agree to sell gift certificates to our organization at a discount. Member families like yours buy the certificates for full face value, you redeem them for full face value, and our school keeps the difference as revenue.
Example: Buy an LL Bean gift card for $100 and Mayo gets $18.00
The beauty of Scrip is that you put your regular household shopping dollars to work. You earn money for our school without spending a single additional penny. Just spend your regular shopping dollars with Scrip at the stores that participate in the Scrip program! And Scrip can be used for just about any household purchase including food, clothing, entertainment, gasoline and even dining out.
Gift Cards are perfect for teachers, coaches, mailman, bus driver, relatives and friends. Most people purchase gift cards during the holiday season and you can ask friends and family if they want to purchase them to support your child’s school.
How to Order
There are hundreds of retailers participating in the program. For a complete list, go to https://www.shopwithscrip.com. You can order online from the list!
Complete the order form and send in a check made payable to “Mayo PTA.”
The final deadline for orders is Thursday December 3rd.
Gift cards will be available for pick up on Thursday, December 17th before and after both holiday concerts and from 5-6pm.
We are unable to send orders via children’s backpacks.
Thank you for your support!
