BOOK FAIR

Would you love to put affordable books into the hands of our Chinook students? This committee does just that by organizing and running our Fall and Spring Scholastic Book Fair.

We need volunteers to  work with our Scholastic representative, organize book buying opportunities and organize volunteer schedules to work at either our Fall or Spring event, along with set up and tear down of the displays.

BOX TOPS

General Mill’s Box Tops for Education award cash grants to schools. Chinook PTSA participates by having our families clip and send to school box tops from eligible products to turn into these programs for redemption.

We need volunteers for coordination of the collection process for these programs, as well as the submission to the programs for redemption. Volunteers are also needed for “at home” trimming of labels when needed.

DINE & DONATE NIGHTS

Simply put, we work with local restaurants and eateries to set up nights where each restaurant contributes a percentage of their sales to Chinook.

If you are interested in helping set these nights up, this is an easy volunteering opportunity for stay at home, or working parents. Contact us to learn more!

PAYBACK BOOKS

Another big fundraiser for the PTSA is selling Payback Coupon books, featuring hundreds of discounts to Vancouver restaurants and retailers.

This years payback book sale with start on Friday, August 30th, and continue through till late September.

ORIGINAL ART WORKS

Original Art Works is a popular yearly fundraiser. Students create art pieces in their Art class and Original Art Works then assists you in creating items such as mouse pads, coffee mugs, t-shirts and more to showcase your students art.

Students will be working on their art in early fall, and items will be available to purchase during mid October, with an early December delivery.

SPRING PLANT SALE

A fundraiser in the Spring, before Mother’s Day.

We need volunteers to help coordinate by distributing and collecting order sheets, and organizing and handing out the plants when they come in.

More information on the fundraiser, and volunteering opportunities will be available in early spring 2019.

SMENCIL-GRAMS

Smencil-grams is a fun, easy fundraiser that we recently brought to Chinook. Smencils are scented pencils, that come in a plastic tube to keep the scent fresh. The pencils are fully made with recycled materials, and the kids love them.

For Thanksgiving this year you can tell your student how “thankful” you are for them. You can purchase a smencil-gram for $2, and your child will be delivered a Smencil along with a cute note from you. At Valentines, we also send valentine themed smencil-grams.
