Howards Grove Schools - PTO

We pride ourselves in being a “community school”. Because of community volunteers, parents, and local businesses, we are able to provide our children (at all three schools) with the latest innovations, resources, and support. We appreciate any support you can provide the PTO in all that we do.

Northview Elementary Collection Programs

At Northview Elementary we have several collection programs which yield either cash or points which we can use to purchase special equipment for our students. Anyone in the community is welcome to help us with these programs. Listed here is what we save at Northview.

General Mills' Boxtops for Education

 We continue to collect Boxtops from various products. Visit Box Tops 4 Education for more ideas about the program.

Target's Take Charge of Education

Another way to help our school is by signing up for Target's Take Charge of Education. Target donates up to 1% of purchases made using the RED card SM to eligible schools designated by TARGET shoppers. To sign up, stop by the kiosk in your favorite Target store or call 1-800-316-6142.

Pick 'n Save

Sign up for the Advantage Card and designate the Howards Grove PTO as one of your favorite organizations to receive the automatic credit on all purchases. The PTO's account number is 337750.
