All fundraisers for Perrysburg Schools must be approved in advance by the Board of Education. This includes but is not limited to sales, t-shirt sponsorships, restaurant nights, carnivals, booster activities, patron sales, etc.
Before completing a fundraiser request, we suggest viewing the Master Fundraiser List (linked here) to check for possible date conflicts. This list contains all fundraiser requests received (approved by the Board of Education AND submitted / pending approval). This list is updated as requests are received. Checking for date conflicts will hopefully prevent our groups, clubs, and teams from competing against each other for support during restaurant nights and car washes.
Fundraisers involving sales of food and/or candy must meet the Smart Snack standards (linked here). Foods that do not meet the Smart Snack standards cannot be sold from midnight through 30 minutes after the school day has ended. More information regarding the rules of this federal regulation is linked here.
