Fundraising


Ute Meadows Elementary participates in several PTA fundraisers throughout the year, many which cost you nothing. We encourage you to participate in these fundraisers and help keep the programs running that are funded through the PTA. Thank you!!

Read-a-Thon Fundraiser
The Ute Meadows PTA will launch a new fundraiser in 2015: the Read-a-Thon! Students will take pledges and will read books over a 10-day period. It will be a great opportunity to raise funds for the PTA while encouraging a love of reading.

Scrip
Scrip is fundraising while you shop® - Raise money by shopping with gift cards for everyday purchases like food, clothing and entertainment. Each scrip gift card you buy earns a rebate for Ute Meadows Elementary. Scrip is the powerful, "no-selling" fundraiser.
