We want you to be part of Blue's Club!
WHAT IS BLUE'S CLUB?
Blue’s Club is Babler PTO’s alternative to having multiple “wrapping paper/candy/ magazine” fundraisers throughout the school year.
ask parents, grandparents, aunts & uncles, community members, etc. to make a
donation to the Babler Elementary Parent Teacher Organization (PTO).
- 100% of your donation benefits Babler Elementary.
- Don’t forget to check with your employer – they may have a company match program.
- A portion of your donation may be tax-deductible.
WHEN CAN I JOIN BLUE'S CLUB?
Donations can be accepted in the form of a check or with a credit card. Please reach out to email@example.com for additional information. Thank you ahead of time for all your support!!!

Tyson Project A+
Here’s how it works: Just clip and collect Tyson Project A+ labels from participating
Tyson® product packages and send them to school with your child. We’ll collect the
labels and send them to Tyson Foods, and Tyson Foods will send our school a check.
Each label is worth 24¢!

Box Tops For Education
You can make a difference for your school every time you shop for groceries! You can clip 10¢ Box Tops coupons from hundreds of your favorite products such as Cheerios®, Betty Crocker®, Juicy Juice®, Ziploc®, Kleenex®, Hefty® and more!
Box Tops for Education helps Babler Elementary earn cash for things we need. Each Box Top clipped earns 10¢, which really adds up when lots of families participate. Don't forget to tell your relatives to collect, too. Our Student Ambassadors now play a large part in preparing the Box Tops for submission, which means they also get to help decide how to use the money for the school!
Send the Box Tops (preferably taped to a collection sheet) into school with your student to deposit them in the blue Box Tops collection bin located inside the lobby.
