Playground Donation Cans Made by CTP Families

Contact Your Child’s Teacher to Request a Template to Decorate!!

We need your help! As a kickoff to the official Plunkett Playground fundraising season we are asking our families and students to jump in and get involved!

Attached to this letter you will find 2 templates! We are asking families to decorate one or BOTH of the attached labels so that we can place them in our school and around our community. BE CREATIVE AND BOLD with your decorations so that our cans stand out above the rest!

Here is what you’ll need to do:

1) Grab your fluorescent markers, glitter, crayons, colored pencils etc.

2) Make your design on your donation can bright and fun!

3) Include your name and grade somewhere in your design.

4) Once your design is complete, cut the paper to fit your collection can.

5) Glue the paper directly onto the can.

6) Return your can to the Main Office at C.T. Plunkett Elementary School

The label with the picture of the Elementary School will be used on collection cans for Box Tops for Education! These collection cans will be placed at area businesses in the community so that anyone with Box Tops labels can donate them for our playground project. Dollars collected through the Box Tops cans will be kept in an account specifically for the maintenance of the new playground. At a recent PTG meeting the members present voted to allocate all Box Tops funds for this purpose now and for the foreseeable future. This will help ensure that there will always be a dedicated funding source for the upkeep of our new playground for many years to come.

The second label will go on collection cans for coins and cash. In addition to placing a can outside of each classroom, we will also place them in and around our community at area businesses. Money collected in the cans will be added to our overall fundraising campaign and donated directly to help build our new playground.

We will continue to raise money and collect Box Tops through the collection cans for the remainder of the year! On behalf of the students, faculty and staff at C.T. Plunkett Elementary School I would like to thank you for your generosity and cooperation in helping us launch this fundraising project!

Please be on the lookout for our complete calendar of fundraising activities in the coming weeks! We have already raised a substantial amount toward our new playground, but remember, every penny counts! Together, we can make this happen and we are so fortunate to have our families as partners in this effort!
