Fundraising Opportunities

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.

Name Description
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.
Casey's Rewards With Casey’s Rewards, you can earn points on everyday Casey’s purchases – in-store, online or at the pump. Turn those points in to donations to our school! See full terms and conditions at caseys.com.

    Welcome to Cokato Elementary!  My name is TJ Anderson, and I am the principal of Cokato Elementary.  As a life-long resident of the DC school district, I know the value that our communities place in our schools.  I enjoy all outside activities, reading, and spending time with my wife and 5 children.
    After teaching for 8 years in the middle school, and then serving as the high school Dean of Students, I am excited to be part of Cokato Elementary.  At our school, our staff provides care, support, and endless learning opportunities for your student(s)- we love learning together!  
    Please feel free to reach out if you have any questions about our school! TJ.Anderson[at]dc.k12.mn.us or (320) 286-4100 ext. 1304.
