Fundraising

Excel PTO has shifted our fundraising efforts. We listened to our parents’ feedback on last year's survey, and have moved from a “selling stuff” approach to a more direct funding approach. Please read about our fundraising needs and efforts.

In addition to the events listed above, you can help Excel PTO raise money in the following ways:

King Soopers Cards

No-effort/ fundraising. You will earn 1 volunteer hour for each $200 recharge.

King Soopers gives Excel Academy 5% back for every amount that is reloaded on our cards. That adds up fast. Together we bring about $1000.00 every month for the school.

The cards can be reloaded at customer service, the register, or the gas pump. You will still receive your fuel points.

To get a King Soopers Card, please pick one up at the Front Office.


FORGET how much you recharged this year? Have your card number ready and call: King Soopers (303) 698-3436

Box Tops For Education

Cut the labels from the products you already buy, and send them to school with your child. Collection is twice a year.

The three classes that collect the most labels will receive an extra recess and the PTO will contribute an additional $50 towards each of the teacher’s classroom budgets.

You can bring your Box Tops to school in a bag or envelope or you can download Box Tops forms here: https://www.boxtops4education.com/about/collection-sheets.
