Field Elementary School

You can Help!

Here’s how you can help

*  If you haven’t already, join the PTA. More than half of your membership fee goes to IL PTA, but the other portion is used for Field. Joining the PTA does not obligate you to doanything, it just ensures you stay informed!
*  Support our fundraisers. 96% of our funding comes from fundraisers, like the ones below:
o Winter Wonderfest: This is a family-style carnival with games and prizes. Funds are raised with tickets, raffles, and auctions. Usually held after the new year.
o Square 1 Art: These are art projects done in school that you can then purchase on a mug, keychain, or other keepsake. More information coming soon.
o Field of Gifts: Field of Gifts is a gift card program where you can purchase gift cards for use at grocery stores and local businesses and a percentage is given back to Field School. First order forms are coming home soon.
o Mom’s Night Out: This is a $10 donation made to reduce other “sales calls” throughout the year and allow moms to meet and get to know one another in a casual setting.
*  Support our incentive programs. At Field, we strive to raise funds without asking any more out-of-pocket. Attached is a list of programs that can help raise money for Field without spending anything extra. This also includes Eat & Earn opportunities at local restaurants.
*  Give your time. Throughout the year, we’ll be sending information and links on how you can get involved in the school. These opportunities are a fun way to make a connection with yourchild’s school.
