There are many ways to support the PTA, including various ongoing programs:
Throughout the year, the PTA hosts meals at local restaurants on specific days to gather BBS families together and earn money for our school. Each restaurant designates a certain percentage of your order to go back to the PTA. Every restaurant has different hours and rules, but the PTA will always provide a flyer that is sent home with all students closer to the event.
Join us for our next Bobcat Bites at Chipotle at Chandler Mall on Monday, August 19, 4-8 pm.
Every time you shop at Chandler Mall, you can be helping our school earn money. Through the School Cents program, purchases throughout Chandler Mall can support BBS. Last school year, the PTA earned $650. There are four ways to submit receipts:
- Online: www.shoppingpartnership.com/chandler. You must write the last four digits of your phone number on each receipt.
- Bring receipts to the Management Office, open Monday – Friday 8:30 am – 5:30 pm. You must write the last four digits of your phone number on each receipt.
- If you don’t want your receipts back, drop them in the receipt collection box at the mall, located on the Upper Level bridge near Barnes & Noble. Make sure to write BBS on them!
- Drop them in the School Cents box in the school office
Start submitting your receipts as of September 1. All stores within the mall and the Boulevard Shops (shops along Chandler Blvd) count for School Cents credit. October bonus: We earn QUADRUPLE points for receipts dated and submitted in October from these stores: Ann Taylor, Brighton, Chico’s, Coach, Journeys, Loft, Michael Kors, Motherhood Maternity, New York & Company, Pop Bar, Sephora, Vera Bradley, White House|Black Market.
Link your Fry’s VIP Card to help BBS
You can help the PTA earn money each time you grocery shop by linking your Fry’s VIP Rewards Club card to our school. Family members and neighbors can link their cards too for our school to earn more. Last year BBS earned $1,500 from this program. Visit www.fryscommunityrewards.com and use our school code QB681. Register your Fry’s VIP card on the website and link it to Bright Beginnings School.
You can be helping the PTA every time you shop on Amazon. To sign up, visit Amazon Smile at https://smile.amazon.com/ch/86-0913427, and with each eligible purchase, Amazon will donate 0.5% of the price back to the PTA.
Box Tops for Education
Have you noticed how many products in your pantry and freezer have Box Tops for Education labels on them? Start saving them! Our school earns $.10 per label and that can add up quick. Last school year, we raised more than $600 in Box Tops. Labels can be put in the containers in the school office, and a collection flyer is often included in PTA newsletters and is included below.
Download the Box Tops App
There’s a new app to collect Box Tops for Education labels to help our school called the Box Tops Bonus App. Buy products that have the Box Top logo, scan your receipt and watch the earnings stack up! Download the app in the Apple app store or on the Google play app. This is a great way to invite out of state family and friends to earn money for BBS!
Consider a POGO Pass the next time you're buying a gift, which gives an individual entry to 23 different attractions across the Valley for one year, including Diamondbacks games, the zoo and Sunsplash. The PTA receives $5 for every POGO Pass purchased. The POGO Pass is a great way to give a gift of fun experiences versus more toys and stuff. To purchase, go to www.pogopass.com and enter code BBSPTA.
