Fundraiser Information
Spring Fundraising Campaign Kickoff: The fundraising committee is beginning our spring fundraising campaign for the Musical, Bye Bye Birdie, and to support the Wissahickon Sustainability Council’s efforts to depave and green our schoolyard. They need help! Have a connection to a local business that may want to support our school? Email with the name of the company you can visit. The committee will prepare sponsorship packages for you to deliver! Our last day for fundraising will be March 31st so the sponsorship information can be printed into the musical playbill.

Mabel’s Labels Fundraiser: Log on to and click on the upper right-hand side where it says, “Support a Fundraiser”. Type in “Cook-Wissahickon”, shop, have it shipped to your house, and CW earns money!

Box Tops For Education: We’re still accepting the paper box tops, but these traditional box tops clippings are being phased out. Now, when you see a Box Top Symbol, you can download the App and upload your receipt! This money goes directly to the school to help support student activities!  

Choir Fundraiser: Want to help the CW Choir? Check out this GoFundMe page a CW student set up to raise funds for the music program to help cover the costs of the choir traveling to their championship competition later this year. Donate and/or share! Thanks in advance for your support

Volunteer and Donation Needs
Volunteer Clearances: Every person who volunteers at our school—in the classroom, on field trips, at school events, etc.—MUST have clearances!

Library Volunteers: WePac volunteers staff our library, but additional volunteers are needed in order to allow more CW students to be able to use the library. No experience needed—you’ll be trained on what to do. If interested, email or find WePac volunteers at school on Thursdays! They are also accepting donations of lightly used books! These books will help stock our library as well as other school libraries throughout the city!

Schoolyard Cleanups: Come out from 8 to 10 am in the schoolyard on the following Saturday Mornings: 3/7 and 3/21. Help us keep our schoolyard clean. Each of these dates (weather permitting), we’ll do a light grounds cleanup followed by time to enjoy the playground. The HSA and WSC will provide trash bags and gloves to volunteers. No need to RSVP. Just show up when you can, for whatever amount of time!

CW Amazon Wish List Spotlight: Love your teacher? Want to surprise them with a spring treat this month? Consider purchasing an item on his/her wish list! Find all CW teacher Amazon Wish Lists here!
