Fundraisers help to support the mission of the PTA and improve the educational opportunities for our children.
What are the fundraisers happening right now?
Playground Project: crowdrise kick-off campaign
If you’ve ever stepped onto CW Henry’s lower schoolyard and kicked a piece of loose asphalt, watched too-many-kids try to play on the equipment, wished for a greener playspace, longed for a bench while you chatted with friends… now is the time for action! You can impact the lives of hundreds of children by making a donation of any size.
Most importantly, share our crowdfunding campaign with your social network. You might be friends with someone who is looking to improve the world, one corner at a time!

Some ways that you can help raise funds or provide needed supplies for the PTA and our students anytime you feel so inspired
Donor’s Choose Projects for our Teachers
Their Mission: We make it easy for anyone to help a classroom in need, moving us closer to a nation where students in every community have the tools and experiences they need for a great education.
How It Works:
- You find a project: Find a classroom project that inspires you and give as little as $1. We’re a public charity, so your donation is tax-deductible.
- Donors Choose fulfills the order: When a project is fully funded, we purchase all the requested items and ship them directly to the school.
- Teachers thank you: Every donor gets a thank-you letter from the teacher, photos from the classroom, and a report of how each dollar was spent.

Information About Fundraisers That Will Take Place Later in the Year
Lifetouch School Pictures:
Fall pictures took place November 2nd.
Cherrydale.com is our largest annual fundraiser. Order lots of items online and your purchases will benefit the school and its students! Use school code FRHENPP. Order in person from a student or teacher! Ordering online allows your goods to be delivered directly to your home (no need to schlep boxes home with your kid) and provides a largest portion of the profit to go to the PTA. Loads of prizes for top sellers.
The 3 grades with the highest percentage of student participation won an extra recess.
Also, in addition to the Ta-da awards listed in the catalogue, C. W. Henry students that sell: 10 items will be invited to the DJ Dance Party (a major hit with kids), 25 items will also receive a $20 Target gift card, 35 items will also receive $80 cash, and 50 items will also receive $150 cash.
Scholastic Book Fair
The online book fair is open and the in-person book fair will be open in November. You can purchase books directly from the website or preview the titles that are available to make in person shopping easier.
Profits benefit the C. W. Henry PTA.
There are ways to fundraise for the PTA through your participation in events like the Turkey Trot (a walk/run) Fun Fit Fest, and more; you have fun and you raise money simultaneously!
