PTO Fundraisers

Hello Northwest Families!


Coming this fall, Northwest PTO is proud to present a FUN RUN for the school fundraiser.  

The fun run will be the only fundraising event this year.  All students will participate with their friends and classmates on the evening of the October 5th. Students will run, walk, skip, or jog to some of their favorite songs! Our fundraiser is geared toward health and wellness, so students are enriched with a fitness education experience aimed to achieve budget success for this school year.

Northwest PTO is proud to present: The Northwest Fun Run for the 2018-2019 Parent-Teacher Organization Fundraiser!



Northwest PTO has a long history of supporting the students and staff at Northwest Elementary School.  We buy supplies and educational aids, as well as plan special events/activities that are fun and educational for our students. For the 2018-2019 school year, we will start a new tradition of a Fun Run/Walk as our only fundraiser for the school year.  

Our goal is to raise $20,000. 
That is how much money we spend each year supporting Northwest Students!

Thanks to the generous donations from our wonderful sponsors, which help to cover our minor expenses, 100% of the profits raised will go to the kids!

Please join us and support the students of Northwest Elementary School.

Watch the video at the end of this email for info from the students!

This year we have partnered with The Get Movin' Crew. Parents and students can easily create their own custom, secure fundraising webpage. By taking our fundraiser online we can reach so many more supporters!
It's easy to get registered! Click the gold star to create your parent login, then add your child to Northwest's fundraiser to create a student fundraising webpage. While you're logged in, you can monitor your child's donations, thank their online donors and see ways to stretch your child's donation dollars. Student webpages are secure and easy to share. Additional help and tips can be found on the Parent Tools page.

Share your child’s Student Fundraising Webpage

This is the key to success. Once your child is registered, share their webpage using the Share Tools provided to send e-mails to friends and family worldwide, or share the webpage on any social media platform. Parents that use the Share Tools to promote their child's webpage help their child raise an average of $150.00+ as opposed to students that just bring in cash or a check donations. Watch the video below to see how easy it is to share your child’s fundraising webpage.

Incentive prize items (like free Culver’s scoops, monster clips, and pedometers) will be awarded to students once per week based on their standings in their fundraising goal.

Following the conclusion of the Fun Run,  we will award the incentives for winners of the limo ride and principal for a day.  If the entire school meets our goal they all get inflatables at lunch recess!  Dates for those activities are TBD.
All donations will be tracked for your student!  Online & cash and check!


You may also collect cash and checks towards your student's goal and send them in on Bank Days.  We have sent home 3 envelopes labeled with the dates. 

Please include the cash or check made out to "Northwest PTO".  Seal the envelope and write your student's name and teacher on it.

  • Bank Day 1: September 21 - Highlander Day!  Wear Green and Gold
  • Bank Day 2:  September 28 - PJ Day
  • Bank Day 3: October 4 - PJ Day

Free Frozen Custard!

The first 200 students who register and receive their first donation on the getmovincrew website will receive a token for a free Single Scoop of Fresh Frozen Custard from Culver's of Howell.

Monster Clips

For the first $20 your student raises, he or she will receive a rainbow lanyard and a monster clip!

For every $20 your child raises after that, he or she will receive another monster clip! 

There are 8 monsters, collect them all!

Earn a Limo Ride!
