Celebrating 25 Years

Beyond The Books Education Foundation: 

Saturday, February 25, 2017

1-4pm Evans Junior High School

 Would you like to help the school? PTO uses fundraising to purchase things such as playground equipment, iPads, chromebooks (things that were purchased the last couple years). When ordering gift cards through SCRIP, PTO gets a portion of the cost of the gift cards back. Example: a Chili's $25 gift card makes the school $2.75, every little bit helps! The November order forms are due back to school Tuesday February 14th by 9 am. Order form is attached. No printer? No problem, just write your order down and send it along with your check to school.

Click here to access and print the SCRIP order.


Any Amazon shoppers out there? Use the following link and a portion of your purchase will go to the PTO to support your Towanda Bulldog. Thanks!
