Fundraisers allow SPELC to continually upgrade the quality of early childhood education that is offered. We have a few ongoing fundraisers, Our Annual Children’s Consignment Sale, King Soopers Gift Cards and Scholastic Books.
Our biggest fundraiser is the Annual Children’s Consignment Sale held in the Fall each year. The Consignment Sale is a sale of clean, top quality, new and gently-used children’s clothing for all seasons; girls sizes 0-16 and boys sizes 0-20. We also sell Maternity clothes, shoes, toys, books, DVDs, baby equipment/furniture, linens, decor and more! There is a 70%-30% split, with the Seller receiving 70%. SPELC, which is a non-profit organization helping our surrounding community, receives 30%. Sellers receive a tax donation receipt with their check for the 30%. Sellers set the price of the each of their items.
We have reloadable gift cards available, for free, in the ELC Office. You reload your card at the customer service desk or register, using your credit card or other form of payment, for any amount you want. Each time you reload your card, SPELC receives 5% of that amount from King Soopers. We in turn give you 2% toward your monthly tuition and SPELC keeps the other 3% to raise funds toward playground renovations and building improvements.
It is that easy! We all buy groceries, why not shop use King Soopers reloadable gift cards and help your preschool at the same time, without any financial output on your part.
Scholastic Books offer a lot of great literature at discount prices, usually much less than the bookstore or even Wal-Mart. You fill out your order and turn it into the office or place it online and we will distribute the books to you when they come in.
Our school earns “points” for your orders and with these points we purchase things for the school and your child’s classroom. In the past we have earned enough points for a new computer in the office, a new DVD player and TONS of books and various supplies for our classrooms. We’ve enjoyed a great return from our parents investment in reading and we believe our students have too! Reading with your children now is one of the best things you can do to promote achievement in school!
