Our first and a most important fundraiser is
the Hamilton Avenue School PTA Membership Campaign!
You can become a member for as little as $25, but donations of any amount above that are welcomed. We pay $5.50 in dues to the Connecticut and National PTAs and the balance goes toward building our budget for the year. Show your student you support their education and their school - become an HAS PTA member!
HAS PTA Dollars at Work
Our membership voted to approve the budget for this year in May of 2019.
The bulk of our funds go to work for our students, our staff and our families.
Please note that additional funds do also go toward conducting our fundraisers and the general operations
of our PTA work (e.g., accountant fees for tax prep, office supplies for volunteers, etc.).
- full or partial funding for curriculum enrichment that provides the opportunity for learning to occur in ways not always possible in the classroom
- books for ALL students
- refreshments for Field Day and end-of-year celebration
- funding for HAS play
- books for classroom libraries
- Teacher Appreciation month
- babysitting for PTA meetings
- Bingo Night family event
- spirit wear for students & families
- contribution to scholarship fund for GHS grads from HAS
- NEW digital family directory and sign up platform
Our fundraising goal for Box Tops is $600.00 for the 2019-2020 school year!
Download the NEW Box Tops app to go digital this year!
We are listed as "Hamilton Avenue Elementary School" in the Box Tops app.
THE OLD BOX TOPS CLIPS
Traditional Box Tops clips are being phased out of production, but may continue to be found on many products throughout the store. You can still clip and send them to school.
Every valid Box Tops clip is worth 10¢ for your school. Make sure each one has a clearly visible product acronym and expiration date.
THE NEW BOX TOPS LABELS
Eventually the Box Tops program will become digital-only. Participating brands are starting to change their packaging from a traditional Box Tops clip to the new Box Top label.
If you see this label, use the new Box Tops app to scan your receipt. Box Tops are still worth 10¢ each for your school. The app will find participating products purchased at any store and instantly add cash to your school's earnings online.
