Fundraising

The Colonial Park PTO cannot fulfill its primary function of supporting our childrens’ education without exploring many ways to raise funds. Our PTO tries to support Colonial Park students and teachers in multiple ways throughout the year.

We raise funds for:

  • School-wide enrichments (e.g. Dr. Suess Day, visiting musicians…)

  • Classroom enrichments

  • Teacher stipends

  • Field trips for each grade

  • PTO-Sponsored school-wide events (Halloween Party, Pasta Night, Ice Cream Social)

  • Special projects our staff and students are passionate about (e.g. “Only One You” rock art project)

We can only support these initiatives through fundraising. Our primary money-earners are: student support funds ($25 per student suggested donation each year), restaurant partnerships, commercial partnerships (e.g. Yankee Candle), passive fundraising (see how you can help below.)


Remember to make any checks out to Colonial Park PTO.




Passive Fundraising

Here are some easy ways to support Colonial Park Elementary School PTO!

Do you use Shutterfly? Please use the Shutterfly Storefront link below, then sign in as you typically would. Great for making Holiday cards, photo gifts, or for printing your favorite memories while giving back to the PTO!

Do you shop on line at Amazon?  You can choose a charity to support for most of your Amazon purchases. Colonial Park will get a percentage back from your purchases. Just remember to always start your purchase through the Amazon Smile page.

Mabel’s Labels These are great labels for jackets, clothing, backpacks, lunch boxes and water bottles. They go through the washer/dryer & dishwasher great. It is so helpful to have these items labeled at school! Please go to the site, click on Support a Fundraiser, Select School / Organization, then scroll down to Colonial Park School PTO.

Do you shop at Stop and Shop? Don't forget to register your loyalty card! When you shop between October and March you will earn CASH for our school. Please register your card online by following the link below. Colonial Park's school number is 08630. Please register family members too! Read this document for more information.

Box Tops Collect Box Tops from participating items and earn money for Colonial Park! Box Tops is transitioning to a smart app to collect box tops by scanning your store receipt, but you can still bring in unexpired paper box tops to the school as well! You can also use the Box Tops App to search for special offers each month, which can help you earn even more money for the school!

Do you have old textiles?

Baystate Textiles has collection boxes outside each school in Stoneham, plus at Town Hall and Stevens Street Recyling Center. Any clean textiles (e.g. old clothes with holes in them, blankets, stuffed animals, jerseys, etc) can be placed in a plastic bag and deposited in a collection box. Each school in Stoneham splits the proceeds.
