All-Abilities Playground Scratch & Give Fundraiser Dubbed a Success

The vision of the Maple School All Abilities Playground Fundraising Committee with the Maple PTO is to create a fun and safe playground where middle school youth of all abilities can have social interaction in a space which promotes play, exercise, and learning, as they interact with one another. Please contact a board member if you would like to join our committee or have an idea to share. Information at

How It Worked

  • During the months of December and January, students at Maple, Wescott, and Willowbrook Schools were given scratch cards.
  • Students should wrote their name and teacher on the back of the card
  • Students were able to invite family, friends, neighbors to scratch off circles to reveal a donation amount.
  • Circles donation value ranged from $2-$7, but individuals could always donate more!
  • Donations were then given by going to to fill out a form and make payment.
  • Once all 20 circles on the card were scratched off and donations are made, the student returned the card to their school office and received a new one.
  • All donations were automatically entered into a raffle.

Classroom Competitions

In addition to raffle tickets, students participated in a school-wide competition. This happened automatically when the Donation Form was filled out for the Scratch and Give game.

  • The top two fundraising classrooms at Willowbrook and the top two fundraising classrooms at Wescott received extra recess time!
  • The top two fundraising Advisories at Maple received a Pizza Party with the Principals!
  • The online donation form requested information that helped calculate results.

Prior donations from this year were entered into the drawing and classroom competitions.
