Brighten your homes and gardens while helping us build community
2023 Plant Sale Info
Follow these easy steps:
1. Take your order forms to your friends, family and neighbors, and ask if they would like to order plants from our great selection. • Be sure to tell them that the money raised by the PTO will help provide supplies and field trips for your classroom. • Remember: Always have an adult with you for safety when selling outside of your home. • Your teacher and the office have more forms.
2. Collect the money at the time your buyer gives you his or her order form. • Checks should be made out to the Bancroft PTO. Cash is fine, too. • Give the yellow copy to the person making the order. • Put the white copy and the money into the envelope we provided.
3. Return your order forms and money to your teacher by Friday, April 21, 2023. This is important because the greenhouse needs time to get our plants ready to deliver.
4. On May 12 & 13, 2023, our plants will be ready for pick-up. Let your buyers know they can pick them up at the school during these times: Friday, May 12, 4:00-6:00 pm Saturday, May 13, 10:00am-2:00 pm
Prizes will be awarded to the student from each grade who raises the most money.
Good luck and have fun. Questions? Email email@example.com
PTO needs volunteers to help unload the plant sale Truck on Thursday, May 11 after school, and volunteers to help manage the pickup times on Friday and Saturday. Email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have availability.
The annual Bancroft PTO Spring Plant Sale is popular in our community and has been our biggest fundraiser. This fund helps us replenish our account so that we are able to fund classroom requests, field trips, in-school artist experiences, and other needs in the coming school year.
Students take home order sheets for potted flowers and vegetables, seed packs, and hanging plants. Families and friends place their orders. When sheets come back to the school, we make one big order that's delivered to the school two weeks later. Everyone comes on a Friday afternoon and Saturday to pickup their items.
