Hey, guys! Each fall our school has a 'Walk with Pride' fundraiser. Technically the kids are suppose to get pledges and then walk laps on a Saturday to raise money for their classroom. In reality, parents end up just writing a check. Last year I raised a measly $100. Some teachers brought in over $1500. I had no idea how to 'market' myself, so I'm trying to figure out a new strategy this year. A teacher told me it helps to have a big ticket item that you tell parents you are going to use the money on, and then they feel like they are really contributing towards something. Truth be told, I want the funds for incidentals like ink cartridges, food for Family Nights, TpT projects, etc. But I'm open to the idea. If you were going to advertise a big ticket to your families as a fundraising goal, what would it be? I already have 10 mini iPads. I don't need a new computer. I'll get getting a 3d printer this spring. I have an elmo and smartboard. I have a ton of books. The teacher suggested a podium of some sort for the middle of the room where kids can come up and present through technology? Maybe I could move my elmo to it? I would need a longer cord, but the idea is a good one. What would you get? Something that would add a lot of value to the classroom, but wouldn't be so crazy expensive that I would still have a little left for incidentals.
