The Aikin Parent Association (APA) kicked off the Big Kahuna Fundraiser on Thursday, September 1, with student assemblies. Each student took home a packet with instructions for in-person fundraising and registering online, enabling them to send emails to family and friends. Each catalog includes wrapping paper, kitchen tools, cookie dough, sweet treats, and more. There is a donation option available both online and on the order forms.
Sales will be open September 1–20 on the order forms, and the online store will remain open until September 27. Students earn a prize for every ticket that they turn in. In addition, each student who sells 15 items will get to take a ride with schoolmates on the Monster Party Bus and enjoy a snow cone.
All APA fundraisers raise money for their expenses, including student enrichment, science camp, art classes, the library, teacher appreciation, campus gardens and beautification, and a 4th-grade end-of-year party. “The Big Kahuna Fundraiser is a wonderful opportunity for our students to be a part of raising money for the great ways APA supports Aikin,” stated APA President Maggie Kerby. “We are thrilled to offer a new option for fundraising that offers lots of fun incentives for our students.”
