Our fundraisers directly support the programs, services, and PTA operations that take place at LES. Fundraising has allowed our PTA to purchase technology such as Smart Boards and iPads, new books for the library, playground equipment for our children, covered walkways, beautification of the courtyard, support for homeroom teachers and specialists, and so much more!

The PTA sponsors the following fundraisers:
Box Tops for Education and Labels for Education are a great way to raise money for Leesville, without a large time commitment. Every 10 cents counts! Clip along the dotted line from General Mills products and send them into school in a ziplock bag or collection sheet, with the teacher name and grade. Clip labels on Campbell soup products and more, to earn money for PE equipment and much more. Ask family members and work colleagues to help you collect them.
Our goal is to collect 10 Box Tops per child per month, yielding an average of 250 Box Tops per month per class. At that rate, we can raise over $9,000 annually for the LES PTA!
