More Fundraising Opportunities and Events
To prevent fundraising from overshadowing academics and study time, whole-school fundraising is limited to the few highly successful events outlined below. The 8th Grade Class, Student Council, and the Athletic Booster Club operate occasional fundraisers on a smaller scale in support of their programs as well. To volunteer, find out who to contact by checking the Members and Committees page.
Fiesta Fall Fundraiser
In late August, fundraiser packets are sent home with the students. They have about two weeks to sell the catalog items to family and friends, earning prizes for participating. This has been a very successful fundraiser for Valley Academy. Proceeds from the Fall Fundraiser have purchased document projection systems for the classrooms, awnings outside the kindergarten and preschool classrooms, the school’s electronic marquee, playground structure shades, an elevated stage for the MPR, music risers, a portion of the basketball court, and more!
Spring Boosterthon Fundraiser
This spring fundraiser involves every Valley Academy student in a fun event. Held in conjunction with our Spring Field Days, it is a fun time of outdoor activity that includes monetary pledges and donations to our school.
The Spring Festival is our largest event fundraiser. Planning starts in October for this early March event. Kindergarten through 8th grade students and an army of parent volunteers get involved in planning, staffing, and participating in this event. There are game booths sponsored by the classes, raffles, food, and entertainment. It’s a great time for families and students just to have fun, and it is a tremendous success year after year.
