Gift & Wrap Fundraiser – Thursday 9/15 – Tuesday 10/4 – All items will be delivered before Thanksgiving. As an incentive, there is a Principal Limo this year! Every student that sells at least 10 items will be entered into a drawing to be wheeled around the school and announced to classrooms/lunch room, etc. by Mr. DeBellis. There will also be “Paw” Prizes based on The Secret Life of Pets collectible on days 9/20, 9/27, and 10/4 based on the number of items sold. Also new this year, all orders will be shipped directly to the home! For more information go to If you have any questions regarding the fundraiser please contact Lori Barfield,

Shoeboxes Needed – The 5th grade is in need of shoeboxes for their Pin Hole Camera assembly that will be happening in October. If anyone has any extra shoeboxes around their house please send them in with your child! The one important thing is that the shoebox MUST have a removable cover!

We Need Speedy – Our Walk to School day is approaching and we are looking for a volunteer to dress up as our mascot Speedy! The kids love this event and they LOVE doing it with Speedy! The event is on Wednesday, October 5th around 7:20 AM. Please email Nancy Krupienski, if you’re interested.

Volunteer Incentive – The PTO is excited to announce a NEW incentive for all our volunteers. How would you like to enjoy a night out to dinner or perhaps even a movie? All you need to do is volunteer your time at one of our events and you’re name is then put into a drawing for a gift card up to $50 to a restaurant or a restaurant and a movie combo! We will be doing two drawings a year, one in December and then another in June! The more you volunteer, the more chances you have to win! It’s our way of saying “Thank You” to our volunteers!

Shutterfly – How exciting! We have teamed up with Shutterfly to help fundraise for our school! Whenever you place an order with Shutterfly, use this link before beginning your order. As long as you use our link, Shutterfly will donate 13% of each sale to our school! Great for pictures, gifts, invitations, and Christmas cards! You are still able to use coupons and promotions as you would normally do.  It’s just now, you’re helping raise funds for your child’s school!

PTO Volunteers Needed – The Center Road School PTO has positions available for the upcoming 2016/2017 school year! The PTO plays an important part in many of the fun school events and without parent support some of our events may not be possible! Please click here for the list and if you are interested in filling one of these please contact Angela Fredrickson, for further information!

PTO Money – The PTO has such an important job when it comes to funding and planning out the school year! We try to plan a lot of fun events as well as support our teachers and staff at Center Road School. And yes, we do this through fundraising and some would say a lot of fundraising! But it all goes towards making your children’s elementary school years as fun as possible! So, ever wonder just what we do with the money we raise? Well click here is a brief description of all the wonderful things the PTO does.

Shoparoo / Amazon Smile – One of the easiest ways to earn money for our school is to download the Shoparoo app, create an account, snap a picture of your receipts, and just like that earn money! As you start your back to school shopping don’t forget to use Amazon Smile! If you’re making purchases on Amazon go to and under the Supporting tab designate us, Parent Booster USA Inc. Center Road School PTO, and with each purchase Amazon will automatically donate .5% of the sale to us! If you add a bookmark to Amazon Smile it’ll be even easier to return and start your shopping next time! Click here for more information.

Attention PTO Committee Chairs – In order to help volunteers run future PTO events/fundraisers, we’re creating a place on our PTO website where anyone can go to view what is involved in a particular event. If you have chaired a PTO event, please email Angela Fredrickson, and provide any information about that particular event (i.e. do you send a flyer home with students, does it involve a permission slip being signed, do you need the building form completed, etc.)
