You can support LFES PTA while doing the things you are already doing this summer. Here are 3 ways to help us earn “free” money, each takes just a few minutes of your time.

Update Your Shopping Link

Are you an Amazon shopper? Log in through www.AmazonSmile.com and select 5343 Las Flores Elementary as your charitable organization, and Amazon will donate 0.5% of the price of your eligible purchases to our school whenever you shop AmazonSmile.

Collect Box Tops

Clip and save Box Tops for Education. We raised over $1,100 last year alone through Box Tops donations! Box Tops can be found on hundreds of products, and each is worth 10 cents. Simply clip & save these labels all summer, and stay tuned for our collection drive announcement in the fall.

To earn Bonus Box Tops credits, use the Box Tops for Education Bonus App, watch for in-store specials at your favorite grocery store, or visit www.boxtops4education.com.

Save Your Recyclables

We will collect them for recycling during Water Bottle Wednesdays when school resumes.

Do you have a passion for recycling? Are you available for an hour one Wednesday morning each month? If so, please click here to contact us. We are seeking parent volunteers to help us with this program next year.

Your Membership Matters

As a school-connected organization, we must follow the same Constitutional guidelines related to student fees that mandate all schools and districts provide a public education to your student free of charge. Subject to certain exceptions, your right to a free public education means that neither the school nor its support organizations can require you or your family to purchase materials, supplies, equipment or specific uniforms for any school activity, nor can we require you or your family to pay security deposits or make donations in order to participate in the program. All donations are strictly voluntary and greatly appreciated as we work to support our schools and programs!
