Unfundraiser, Walkathon, Gift Matching, eScrip, Book Fair, Box Tops


Funds raised by the PTA purchase items and support programs that are not within the district budget.   Without raising money, we can not support our school.  Programs the PTA have been able to support have included, but not limited to, The PTA scholarships for Outdoor Education, PE and playground equipment, library and computer equipment, increase in couseling time, playground supervision and much more.  Please support Patwin through our fundraisers:  

The "Unfundraiser"

Patwin takes a new approach to its major school fundraising event of the year. Instead of having the usual holiday gift wrap sale to raise money for needed books, equipment, and school events, we have a two-week donation drive in the Fall.  Letters are sent home in September with more information and are located on our web site. 

Many schools in Davis and other communities have moved away from candy and product sales and are successfully raising thousands of dollars for their schools through “unfundraisers” where kids don't have to sell anything, parents don't have to buy anything, and 100% of donations goes directly to classroom and school needs.

eScrip

Sign up for eScrip and help Patwin when you shop.  Nugget, SaveMart, Amazon, Target and others will donate 1-3% of your purchase to Patwin PTA.  Click on "e-scrip" under "Fundraising" at the top of this page.

Book Fair

Proceeds from the week-long Book Fair support our library by providing books for the library and classrooms.  The Book Fair is a bountiful shopping opportunity for books, posters and other items to build your student’s personal library.


Patwin Walkathon

"Patwin on the Move!" is an annual walkathon fundraiser held in the Spring and is an especially fun event for the kids.  The Walk-a-Thon is our school’s largest fundraiser!  It’s an incredible event featuring great food, music and a real sense of Patwin Community.  Rather than collect per mile pledge amounts, students ask for a one-time donation.  The course is a one-kilometer loop from Patwin School to Arroyo Pool facility and back. Participants will earn a T-shirt for meeting participation and fundraising goals, and can win class prizes and individual awards for the event. Patwin Family members can participate on behalf of their students, and community members are welcome to participate as well. All participants must reach participation and fundraising goals to earn a t-shirt.

Included in the Walk-a-thon is the Price Palace, rewarding students for meeting their fundraising goals, the very popular Cake Walk and the Silent Auction.   The amazing event would not be possible without the support of our entire Patwin Community.  Please contact this year’s Walk-a-Thon Chair to find out how you can help. 

Box Tops for Education

You can earn cash for Patwin by clipping Box Tops from hundreds of participating products.  Just clip the Box Tops and send them to school with your child.
