We have several regular fundraisers that bring in income to fund the many projects at Schenk. 

  •  Boxtops for Education--Clip and save Box Tops from of qualifying General Mills products. Watch for contest notifications every fall and spring and help your class win an ice cream party! Send them in with your child or drop them off in the box in the entrance way to the school. We get 10 cents for every box-top! Even if you don’t have a child at the school, donations of these items are much appreciated. 
  • Amazon Smile-- Do you shop at Amazon? If you do, use the website and designate part a percentage of your purchase to the Schenk PTO.
  • Just Coffee Sales -- We sell coffee and chocolate products from Just Coffee, which offers high-quality, fair trade products and supports one of Madison's favorite local businesses.  Coffee orders are collected monthly and you can obtain an order form (or ask any questions) by emailing the PTO at
