Fundraisers

In order to provide financial support to our classrooms, teachers and community in a variety of ways, we must fundraise.  We try to keep our fundraisers to a minimum and make them fun, community-driven and/or mission-based.  Our fundraisers this year will include:

  • Fun Run – Taking place in May, the fun run makes up the majority of our funds raised and it couldn’t be simpler!  Before the run, your child will be asked to collect pledges based on how many laps they believe they can run in during their 30 minute Fun Run (or they can collect a flat donation).  This is a healthy, fun event for kids to participate in and the overhead is minimal, making it a significant and easy fundraiser!

  • Box Tops for Education – If you buy products with BoxTop labels, make sure to clip them and bring them into school.  Keep an eye on our news feed for information about contests and more throughout the year!

  • Coca-Cola give- If you buy any Coca-cola products such as Coke, Minute Maid, Dasani water or Powerade, simply go to  https://us.coca-cola.com/give/schools/ , scan your bottle top or bulk packaging label and the Coca-cola corporation will donate a small percentage back to our school.

  • School Photo Sales – By bringing in Lifetouch Studios for both individual and class portraits, a portion of the proceeds when you buy your child’s school pictures are donated back to Hyalite.

  • Square 1 Art – Square 1 Art gives you a chance to purchase items with your child’s artwork on them!  These make great and meaningful gifts for family and friends, especially around the holidays.

  • Community Businesses – Throughout the year, they may be an opportunity or two to support the PAC through local business giving programs through restaurant nights and coffee months.  Stay tuned for more information.

  • Smith’s Loyalty Card –  Head over to https://www.smithsfoodanddrug.com/ and sign-in to your grocery card account, then go to account settings -> community rewards and find Hyalite Elementary School PAC (Organization #:26465).  To link your Smith’s grocery card you must have your rewards card number. If you use your phone number at checkout and need your card number, call 800-576-4377 and select option 3 to get your Smith’s rewards card number.

  • AmazonSmile – Anytime you need to shop at Amazon, make sure to go to http://www.smile.amazon.org and link Hyalite Elementary School Pac and then .5% of all your purchase totals will be donated back to Hyalite. Every penny counts!

  • School shirts and logo apparel – You will likely have the opportunity to buy Hyalite Hiker shirts, sweatshirts and more at some point in the year.  We try and keep the cost of this down so every child can have a bit of school spirit to wear and the funds raised for the school are minimal if any.

  • Bozeman Color Me Fun 5K – This is Bozeman’s only Color Run and is put on by your Hyalite PAC to benefit Hyalite students as well as all students in the community through an innovative fundraising model.  For more information, check out www.bozemancolormefun.com.  Hyalite funds raised from this event go toward Art and Fitness in any participating elementary schools.

  • Lip Sync for Literacy – The Lip Sync battle is held as a friendly competition between Hyalite and Irving staff to raise money for books!  Funds are raised through ticketed admission, donations throughout the event and a silent auction.  This is a fantastically fun event and kids truly enjoy watching their teachers up on stage.
