Our school has only one major one and we did it in October called Run for Education. The kids walk around the school-or run-for an hour.Other than that they just do small things. Like pajama day where the kids watch movies and they can buy soft pretzels and/ or popcorn for a dollar.

DS is in private so there are fundraisers at ever corner.  We have sold tickets at least 3 xs this year, and again now. We now have a Pizza fundraiser, this is the 2nd for that. Then around Christmas we had a pie fundraiser.  We recently had a bake sale and a white elephant sale. Last year we had a candy sale, oh and the infamous christmas wrapping paper sale.  Plus I know there was a big one at the beginning of the year, but I can't quite remember what that one was only because I remember my husband saying , "We can't sell tickets, because we just hit up all our friends for money a few weeks back for the previous fundraiser" Its all good. Whatever to help the school
