Make a Donation for School Supplies

From copy paper to crayons, from basketballs to dry erase markers, and from buses for field trips to light bulbs for Promethean board projectors, these are but some of the supplies needed in classrooms for our students at Bache-Martin. 

Please consider making a donation today to the school for the purchase of these items! 

Help our teachers and school in their fundraising efforts

Our teachers know what the students need best, how about helping one (or more) of the teachers, and making a difference?

Currently our school has  the following fundraising efforts for specific projects.

Boxtops 4 Education

Earn Money Throughout the Year for Our School!

Even though it is summertime, the Boxtops 4 Education program goes year round.  We hope that you have still been diligently collecting these over the summer and will drop them off in the office when the school year starts. For every Boxtop collected, our school receives between 10 and 50 cents that can be used towards school programs and needs.

Last year, we earned $386.40 through this program. Our goal is to raise $1000 this year.  Click below for a list of the eligible products where Boxtops can be found.

Boxtops Product List

Plus, if you register for an account at www.boxtops4education.com you can earn free boxtops for the school.  See the website for details. Please look for our Boxtop Classroom Challenge that the HSA will be rolling out in the Fall to see which classroom can bring in the most Boxtops.

Labels for Education

Similar to Boxtops 4 Education, the Labels for Education program supports Arts, Athletics, and Academics at schools.  By collecting Labels for Education from products you already buy, like Campbell's Soups, Dannon Yogurt, Prego, and V8, you can help Bache-Martin obtain free educational materials to support the arts, athletics, and academics at the school. 


Drop off your Labels for Education into the same container as the Boxtops 4 Education in the school's main office.  Click here for a product listing.
