Welcome to Our Spring Fundraiser!

This important program will help us raise much needed funds that will be used for enhancing education through teacher grants and student enrichment opportunities. Over the next two weeks, we need your support to help make this one of the most successful fundraisers our school has ever had.

We're excited to be working with Orange Ruler, as they offer our school a fresh and innovative way to help us reach our goals. In addition to helping us raise money, their program emphasizes the importance of teamwork, being active, thinking of others and believing in yourself.

The program also streamlines the entire fundraising process to make it easy for you to help in this important cause. Just follow these four simple steps:

Step 1 - Register your child or children by going to orangeruler.com/signup.

Step 2 - Send donation requests via email or Facebook to your friends and family.

Step 3 - Enter cash or check donations on your personalized page as soon as you receive them to ensure your child receives credit. No additional action is needed for credit card donations.

Step 4 - Turn in all check and cash donations in the collection envelope provided on Turn-in Day (envelope also used to record check and cash donations). Please make sure all checks are payable to Apollo Elementary PTA.

All donations are 100% tax-deductible and we accept all company matching programs.
