PTA Fundraising


Birney relies upon the generosity of its family, community and businesses in order to provide the best educational experience for its students.  We have a number of fundraising events scheduled throughout the school year to fund the PTA budget.  If you have any ideas for fundraisers or would like to volunteer to assist us with our efforts, please contact the Birney PTA Board at or any of the chairs listed under each of these events.


Spirit Wear

You can buy Birney SpiritWear Online any time and we will send the items home with your child! 

Please note that there is a convenience fee of 3.5% plus $0.45.


If you have any questions, please contact our Spirit Wear Chair, Paula Ryan at


Box Tops

Clip and Save Your Box Tops: Each Box Top we collect is worth $.10 for Birney School, and the dimes add up fast! Look for the pink Box Top for Education label on many of your favorite brands including: Nature Valley Granola Bars, Fruit Roll-ups, Cheerios, Yoplait Yogurt, Ziploc, Hefty, Kleenex, Huggies, and new this year, Avery office products. Last year we earned more than $1,000 for our school by clipping Box Tops!  Let’s beat our record!  Please submit your clipped labels to the office.


Cartridge Recycling

The school recycles empty ink and toner cartridges for money.  Please turn in all empty ink cartridges to the bin the workroom or the front office.
