THE FOLLOWING FUNDRAISERS HAVE ENDED
BIG RED A YARD SIGNS: (sale ends on FRIDAY SEPTEMBER 24, 2021 at 6:00pm)
THE TRADITION CONTINUES...
It's been a tradition for decades to see our neighborhood populated with high quality, handmade wood yard signs with the Big Red A painted on it. The girls swim team is again spearheading this project as a fundraiser and a way to spread the Eagle Spirit throughout the city (and country too depending on where you live). ALL PROCEEDS BENEFIT the John Adams Girls Swim Team. This is a once a year event so if you miss the order deadline you'll have to wait until next year.
HOW MUCH DOES A SIGN COST?
$30.00 per 'A' sign
$10.00 per specialty strip
$5.00 per blank strip
HOW DO I GET A CLUB-SPORT SPECIALTY STRIP?
If your student(s) participates in a club, group or sport such as swimming, mock trial, tennis, NHS, band, etc. then you can get a strip highlighting that activity. As you can see from the pictures, the stakes are tall enough to fit several below the 'A' sign. Please, no custom requests such as individual names or things that are not an Adams school group. However, you can order a blank strip for $5 and make your own!
If you also want a specialty strip for an existing sign you purchased in previous years that too can be made and is part of the order form below.

PAYMENT OPTIONS OFFERED BY THE JOHN ADAMS PARENT GROUP:
At times the Parent Group will facilitate a school group's fundraising events. The following are two option we may use for various fundraisers.
1) SQUARE ONLINE PAYMENT SYSTEM:
We have set up a payment system using the popular and pervasive Square payment platform. This will allow us to take your payments/donations using a CREDIT or DEBIT card along with the added ease of Apple Pay or Google Pay for those who have this set up.
2) SQUARE CASH (aka The Cash App):
We have moved away from this method but it is still active. If we use it the link will be provided in our email and social media posts for a fundraiser. If so this will be noted in our communications via email or social media. Below are some FAQ's (frequently asked questions) about this payment method.
HOW CAN I EASILY SEND MONEY FOR FUNDRAISERS ETC THAT THE PARENT GROUP FACILITATES ?
Square Cash is the preferred method of submitting payments at this time. Square Cash is one of the products offered by the ubiquitous Square mobile payment system company. They are very trusted and process millions of transactions for individuals and businesses alike every day. There are less payment failures if you download the Square Cash App and set up a Square Cash account. This requires you to connect it to your checking account via a debit card or your routing and account number info (found on the bottom of your checks) from your bank/credit union.
I ALREADY HAVE A SQUARE CASH ACCOUNT. WHAT IS THE PARENT GROUP's 'CASHTAG' ?
If you are set up with a Square Cash account already you may submit payments using our 'CashTag' which is: $JohnAdamsParentGroup
Always indicate in the 'optional notes' or 'subject line' of the payment what this payment is for so it can be accounted for correctly as many times we're accepting payments for multiple purposes.
CAN I MAKE PAYMENTS WITHOUT A SQUARE CASH ACCOUNT SET UP ?
YES, you may also use the following link without having a Square Cash account using your checking account's debit card (sorry, no credit cards). Please be aware we've experienced more hiccups with payments failing using this method but most of the time it works: www.Cash.me/$JohnAdamsParentGroup
HOW CAN I EARN A REFERRAL FEE & SET UP A NEW SQUARE CASH ACCOUNT ?
If you don't have a Square Cash account set up, you can earn a referral fee from Square Cash by linking to the following page to download the app from either Apple or Android's app store: www.cash.me/app/PKVBNLL
