Camp Wooten Fundraiser: Mixed Bag Designs

Thousands of Jason Lee Students have participated in the Camp Wooten Outdoor Education program over the last 37 years. It’s a week they never forget!

Our current 5th Grade classes are already preparing for camp in the spring by fundraising. They will be selling items from Mixed Bag Designs. We want every 5th Grade Student to create their own memories of Camp Wooten! Thank you for supporting them in their efforts!

If you don’t know a 5th grader and are interested in purchasing any of these items, shop  online or contact one of the 5th grade teachers! They can put you in contact with a student.

Mixed Bag Designs is eco-fabulous! They offer bags, totes, lunch bags, cell phone covers, laptop/ipad cases, stationery products and more. 40% of what you order goes directly to our fundraiser! Make sure you follow these directions to give the credit to our Camp Wooten Fundraiser. Thanks for all your support!

Box Tops for Education

Box Tops for Education has paid out over $19,000 for school supplies to Jason Lee Elementary in the past years. Clipping those Box Tops really makes a difference. Last year Jason Lee Families earned $980 for our school. That is amazing! Our Jason Lee families are great at turning in Box Tops.

  • Make sure to fill in your student’s full name, teacher, and grade on each box top form or envelope submitted.
  • Did you know box tops expire? Before you start, have your student check the expiration date on each box top. Pitch those expired ones.
  • Every student who turns in 25 non-expired box tops and writes their name, grade, and teacher legibly will be entered into a drawing for a prize!
  • Neighbors and relatives are great source for Box Tops!

There are new products added to the list all the time so keep your eye out when you are shopping! You can also sign up online for great coupons on Box Tops for Education products and help earn more from shopping at participating online stores.
