Join us at Block & Board on March 21!
We’ve added a new local business to our restaurant fundraising roster: both a restaurant and a butcher shop, Block & Board will donate 10% of all food purchases — whether meat from the case or their sandwiches and sides — to Capitol Hill on Tuesday, 3/21. Come out and support a new neighborhood favorite and an old neighborhood institution (our fabulous school) at the same time!
8421 SW Terwilliger Blvd / 503-206-7547
*Note that seating is very limited, especially if the weather is bad. We recommend picking up food to go.
Calling All Capitol Hill Families
Our school relies on volunteers and fundraising. We need you to participate! Unlike many schools, the Capitol Hill PTA does not ask families to sell wrapping paper or cookie dough to raise money. We rely on direct donations, select fundraisers, and free-to-you fundraising opportunities to pay for our regular programs and our annual special appeal. You can show your support by helping us towards our fundraising goals right now!
Free and Easy Giving:
Box Tops for Education
Check the everyday products you use in the kitchen for the small “Labels for Education” or “Box Tops for Education” logos. Bring your trimmed labels in and place them in the mailbox in the office. More information »
Register your grocery shopper cards and/or debit & credit cards with Safeway and other merchants. When you use registered cards and shop at participating merchants, a portion of your purchases is automatically donated to our group! More information »
Employer Matching Programs
You might have an employer who matches your efforts. Some have been known to “pay” our school for your volunteer hours; some will match any gift you make to the PTA. You might be able to double your impact!
Fred Meyer Community Rewards
Fred Meyer generously donates a % of your purchases to Capitol Hill PTA. All you do is shop and we earn money for our school. Don’t worry, you still earn your rewards points! More information »
Lambs Thriftway Recycling
When you use the can and bottle return bin at the Garden Home location (7410 SW Oleson), we get credit for the deposits. Just put them in the Capitol Hill School bin, and they send the school a check!
Scrip is a program where you buy gift cards through the PTA. Gift cards include a wide variety of merchants, many of whom you may already do business with. You get the full purchase price of the gift card, the retailer gives a percentage of the gift card value back to the school. Forms and more information »
One-Time or Monthly Donations
We encourage you to consider making a one-time donation OR sign up for automatic monthly withdrawals. Give what you can, when you are able. More information »

Special Fund Fundraising Events at Capitol Hill
The Scholastic book fairs are the largest fundraiser for our school library. It’s a great opportunity to get some gift shopping done or contribute a book or two to your child’s classroom. The fair is open before and after school the week before and during fall conference times. This is a great chance to foster your child’s love of reading while supporting the library, so please be sure to stop by and shop the fair!
Classic fun run! Students gather pledges, then run laps to support our programs at Capitol Hill. Look for pledge forms coming home in the spring. This year the run will be April 28, 2017.
One of Capitol Hill’s grassroots fundraisers–the Decathlon–is a favorite among students! Proceeds help raise money for two great resources at Capitol Hill, our computer and science programs. The Decathlon is a series of 10 mental and physical tests that each student attempts. Watch for fundraising forms and volunteer info after winter break. The Decathlon will be held on January 26, 2017.
