Re: less then 2 months in
I hate when schools do lots of fundraisers.
We did have one in September - but it was the 'Terry Fox Run', which totally doesn't count as a school fundraiser, IMO.
For actual school fundraisers, we have 2 for the whole year. One is selling 'Mom's Pantry Products' - it's all different baking and cooking supplies, spices, pie shells & fillings, pizza crusts, cookie dough, etc. It's really good stuff, not overpriced, the school gets a good %age of it, and they always send it out so everything arrives just in time for Christmas baking
Then in January we have a 'skate-a-thon' for the kids. To me, that one's more for fun than fundraising, but we still contribute.
After those 2, we're done for the year, and best of all they provide all the $$ for field trips for the whole year (including one overnight trip), and we don't have to pay extra.
