Upcoming events at Cokato Elementary
Please help us raise additional funds for our schools! Below is a list of ways you can help by saving or recycling items you either purchased or no longer use.
|Pop Can Tops/Tabs||Yes, we still collect the tabs from the top of cans! We have a wonderful little collection “house” and the tabs are collected and turned into the local McDonalds for the Ronald McDonald House in the metro area. These can be turned in any time!|
|Box Tops||Look for products with BOX TOPS for Education coupon. Each coupon is worth $$$! Please check the expiration date and trim the coupon. Sometimes we will have a special event for the program. The students enjoy collecting for a special goal. BOX TOPS have gone digital - please see the link below!|
|Food Club/Cash Wise||Labels for learning is an easy rewards program. There is a separate printing attached to your receipt with the points for redemption. Please clip this, check the expiration date, and send into school with your student. (If you would like to collect for a while, count the points and then tally and send that to us--yea!) We need to send in the points in bundles of 2,500.|
|Shoparoo||The theme for this fundraiser is: Shop, Snap, and Earn. This is a free app from the AppleApp Store or Google Play Store. Select Dassel or Cokato Elementary as your school choice, take a picture of your receipt --shop anywhere, buy anything. For more information, check out shoparoo.com|

I've been in education for 24 years as a 6th-grade teacher, Middle School Dean of Students, Middle School Principal and now as Cokato Elementary's Principal.
One of my favorite memories is once umpiring a softball game between Bethel University and the Thailand National Softball team in Bangkok, Thailand.
