Box Tops for Education

Box Tops for Education is one of the biggest fundraisers for PTO. Since converting from clipping box tops to the mobile app that scans receipts, our income from Box Tops for Education has significantly decreased. PTO would like to encourage all of you to download the Box Tops append scan your receipts. Immanuel’s earnings are updated online! If you do not want to download the app, you are highly encouraged to turn your receipts into the Box Tops bin by the church basement doors and a member of PTO will scan them for you. Receipts must be less than 14 days old. Immanuel’s lifetime school earnings are $7957. Let’s keep that number growing!

Immanuel Athletes and Parents

We are grateful to be able host the CAL Basketball Tournament at Immanuel again this year on March 3rd, 4th, and 5th. This tournament is the major fundraiser for our athletic program. To run a successful tournament, we need numerous volunteers to help each day. All Immanuel high school athletes are asked to volunteer for at least one shift each day (Thursday and Friday) of the tournament. Parents of athletes are also asked to volunteer at least one shift each day of the tournament. You may sign up after church services or by contacting the school office during the week (345-3027). Non-member volunteers will receive complimentary passes to the tournament.

All High School parents are also asked to bring baked goods (uncut if bars, bread, etc.) to be sold at the CAL Tournament.  Please bring baked items to the church kitchen no later than the morning of Thursday, March 3rd.
