Grocery gift cards. When you buy grocery gift cards from our school to Safeway or New Leaf, Hatch receives a percentage of the purchase (4-5% of the purchase depending on the store). You have to buy groceries so why not ensure Hatch makes some money when you shop. To place a order for a grocery card, email our Scrip Coordinator, Beth Loof at: beth@theloofs.com, ask one of the PTO board members, or look for a table to sign up during special school events.

Events & Activities
Voluntary Tuition Campaign. This is our biggest fundraiser for the year! During 2 weeks in September we hold an Voluntary Tuition Campaign to raise funds for all of the PTO Enrichment programs throughout the year. Our goal is to achieve 100% participation from Hatch Families!

Jog-a-thon. Students ask family, friends, and the community to sponsor laps run around the Hatch field during the event. Come and cheer for the kids! Many volunteers are needed for this event.

We offer parking to Festival attendees for both Saturday and Sunday from 8am-6pm. A number of volunteers are needed for this event.

Students can shop with their classes during school, after school, and even one evening after school. Money raised buys new books for our library. Many volunteers are needed for this event.
