PTO Fundraising & Grocery Cards

​Wolf Call Annual Fundraiser

The annual major fundraiser for Platt and the CHOICE program is called Wolf Call.  Please see the Wolf Call Website for more details.

Additional ways the school earns money

  • King Soopers Community Rewards Program - NEW (as of April 1, 2019).  There's no more reloading of King Soopers grocery cards.  All you have to do is register your loyalty card and shop!   The loyalty card is the card that you use at the check out (or phone # you punch in) to get the KS discounts/coupons.  A portion of what you spend will be donated back to our school once you've created an account & enrolled.  Do this by going to the KS Community Rewards Website and selecting Nevin Platt PTO (ID743) as the donation organization.  Easy as that!  If you have questions, please contact Platt parent volunteer at tami.mus1@gmail.com. 
  • Safeway Grocery Cards.  These grocery cards are available in the school office.  Each card is preloaded with a small amount of money and linked to our school.  Each time the grocery cards is reloaded, our school earn 5% of the amount loaded, without any cost to you!  
  • Collections of Longmont Dairy Milk Caps & Box Tops.  These items can be dropped off in the collection boxes in the school office.  Each one earns us $0.10!
  • Amazon Smiles. Make your purches through smile.amazon.com and Amazon donates to the PTO 0.5% of all eligible purchases.  Be sure to select Nevin Platt Middle School PTO as your charity of choice.  If you've used Amazon Smiles before for another charity, you can go to Account Info and select "Change Your Charity" under the Shopping Programs area.

 

Platt/CHOICE Student Directory

​The PTO hosts the online parent/student directory which is now provided by HelpAtSchool Organization.   The purpose of the directory is to connect families.  Enrollment in this directory happens at the start of each new school year using Infinite Campus (IC) data provided by BVSD. 

This online directory is password protected and accessible only to verified paretns/guardians of Platt/CHOICE students.  It lists only students whose families have agreed or opted-in to be listed.  The listing includes student name and grade along with the option to include parent/guardian phone number and email.   When logged into BVSD.HelpAtSchools.com, the information that is displayed (phone numbers or email) can be customized at any time by going to the "Account Info" page and making changes under the Directory Opt-in area.   If you have any questions, please contact the PTO at nevinplattpto@gmail.com

Platt Shares

​The holiday season is a time of giving, and who better to reach out to than those families within our own Platt community who could use a little extra help?  Every year, the PTO collects monetary donations to purchase gift certificates to King Soopers, Target, and other stores so that our counselors can give them to our families in need to help make their holidays brighter.

There are two ways to donate to support our community:

  • Cash donations - Please drop off at the School Office
  • Online donations - PayPal link
