Fundraisers and Activities|
The following is a list of fundraisers and activities the Delanco PTO is involved in. The funds from these activities and fundraisers go back into the school to pay for class trips, assemblies and graduations awards.
Back to School Bingo & Ice Cream Social: This is a fun BINGO night for grades K through 5 held in the Pearson School All Purpose Room. Every child wins a prize and ice cream is served at intermission!
Fall Fundraiser: Holiday inspired items and wrapping paper is sold to friends and family members. The PTO makes a profit of 40 to 60% of all sales!
Holiday Auction: This fun night is usually held the 1st Friday in December at Walnut Street School auditorium (Must be 18 years old to attend). It is an auction of donated items which are placed in baskets. This is our biggest fundraiser, raising approximately $10,000! All money raised goes back to the school!
Box Tops: Box Tops are collected year round with two submissions, one in the fall and one in the spring. The PTO usually runs a contest to coincide with the submissions where students can win gift cards for Build-a-Bear, Lego Store, Regal Movie Theatre, Target, Chick-fil-A, etc. See the "Box Tops" portion of the website for more information.
Breakfast with Santa/Little Shopper's Shop: This is a fun event for grades K through 5 held in the Pearson School All Purpose Room. Each student can have a breakfast of muffins, donuts, and fruit including milk and juice then get their picture taken with Santa. A Christmas craft is also offered for anyone who wants to make one. Students can then go the "Shoppers Shop" where they can purchase gifts for family members! The gifts range in price from 25 cents to $10. Students can also purchase cookies on the "cookie walk".
Chick-fil-A Spirit Nights: This is a fundraiser offered several times a year where students are given a ticket representing their classroom to go to Chick-fil-A for dinner. Chick-fil-A donates 20% of the sales from that evening back to the PTO.
Roller Skating Party: This is a fun event held at Holiday Skating Center, usually on a Sunday evening, where students can come out to skate and have fun with their classmates.
Spring Musical: The PTO sponsors the annual Spring Musical which is for students in grades K through 5. Each class performs songs in accordance with an annual "theme". Mrs. Cann, the music teacher, organizes this event. The PTO holds a 50/50 before the musical.
Track and Field Day: Students in grades K through 5 participate in Track and Field Day which is organized through the gym teacher at Delanco School. This is a fun day where students are assigned a team color and each "team" competes in games such as sack races, tug of war and hoop races. The PTO helps with this event by providing snacks of crackers or granola bars and water for the children during their morning break. The PTO also provides water ices for each class at the end of the event.
Graduation Awards: The PTO sponsors graduation awards for Math, Science and Most Improved Student.
