FUNDRAISING OPPORTUNITES
Fundraising is the backbone of the Home and School as it provides the greatest amount of funds towards our budget. Usually a Fall and a Spring fundraiser are necessary with perhaps one or two others between. However, we are very excited to announce the E.M.C. Panther's Run as our major spring fundraising event, so please keep a look out for the flyers. Home and School has a budget goal of around $30,000.

  • E.M.C. Panther's Run
    The E.M.C. Panther's Run, 5k and 1 Mile Fun Run was started in 2014. This event is a great way to get the community involvement at E.M.C. Many volunteers from the faculty, staff, and parents are needed to help make this event a success. This is our largest fundraising event.

  • Box Tops for Education
    Clip the logo from the package to earn cash for our school. Each Box Top is worth 10 cents for our school. You can find Box Tops logos on Pillsbury, Betty Crocker, Yoplait and most General Mill Products. You may place these labels in the box provided in the school cafeteria.
