Friends of Pacific Rim PTO

Welcome Back Waveriders!

We are so excited about all the great things planned for the year ahead. The volunteer and fundraising efforts of our Pacific Rim community help provide a fun-filled year of school events and enriched learning experiences for all of our students. To get us started each year the Friends of Pacific Rim PTO raises funds through the Annual Parent Giving Campaign, Jog-a-thon and Shop, Eat & Earn programs to bridge the gap between District funding and the resources needed to fund enriching programs, which our children have come to know and love. Our total fundraising goal for 2017-2018 school year is $225,000!  Check out some of the great ways that you can help us get to that goal. 


Annual Parent Giving Campaign
We are kicking-off our Annual Parent Giving Campaign this week! Our goal this year is 100% family participation. We understand that each family’s situation is unique, but no contribution is too small. Each and every dollar counts. The suggested donation amount of $250 per child will help the PTO meet our total fundraising goal of $225,000. We encourage all parents to consider a meaningful gift for their family. You can donate in one lump sum or in monthly installments, in the amount of your choice. More information will be sent home in the Pelican Pouch this Friday or you can go donate online at
Save the Date for November 3rd as Friends of Pacific Rim will host our annual Jog-a-thon! If your business is interested in sponsoring the Jog-a-thon, we would be happy to include you on our sponsorship banners, shout outs during the event, on our website and more. Please contact Shannon Witt at if you are interested. Sponsor sheets and prize information will be coming home soon. 
Shop, Eat & Earn Funds for Pac Rim Elementary
Shopping with our local partners and service providers, is a great way to support the Pacific Rim community and earn funding for our school. Last year, over $7,000 was earned through various give back programs. Here are just a few ways you can help this year:

Ralph’s grocery will donate a portion of your grocery purchases to Pacific Rim if you connect your rewards card to put NPO #. How to sign up? A 2-minute phone call to 800-443-4438 to link your card to NPO#82629 is the easiest way. If you remember your login information, you can also go to, click on the Community Contribution link and then Enroll Now. Shopping at our local Ralphs is a great way to support Pacific Rim. 

Menchie’s Fridays are back in full force! On Awards Assembly Fridays treat your child to Menchies or just go hang out with friends - either way it is a fun afternoon stop. Menchies gives back 20% of the proceeds to our school, just be sure to mention you are with Pacific Rim. 

Parents Night Out: NCMA, Pac Rims official Kinderati studio is hosting our first of three PNO’s of the year on Sept. 30th. Mark your calendars and RSVP for a fun night of activities, martial arts instruction and an evening off.
Box Tops for Education. Every little square you clip is worth ten cents for our school. Just think if each student brought in 10 Box Tops each month, we would earn close to $7,500! So keep clipping and sending them in. The Smile Amazon Foundation pays .5% of eligible purchases back to Pacific Rim. The trick is to type “smile” in your browser first when shopping on Amazon and of course, linking your account to Friends of Pacific Rim PTO. How do I make sure I am linked? Go to and at the top of your browser it should say “Supporting.” If it does not already say Friends of Pacific Rim, click the small arrow to the right for a drop down and click change.  


Taking the extra step to earn our school funds through the Shop, Eat & Earn benefits is of great benefit to us all. We appreciate all of your efforts.
