Other Ways to Give
If you shop on Amazon using AmazonSmile, Ortega will receive a percentage of all eligible purchases. There is no signup required, either click the Amazon link from the Ortega PTO website or go into AmazonSmile and designate Ortega as your nonprofit of choice. Then shop as you normally do; Ortega receives a quarterly check from all purchases.
The Box Top for Education program always earns money for Ortega. Simply clip your box tops—be sure to check the dates as they do expire—and turn them in to the small box above the trophy case in the front hallway. Be sure to put them in a baggie with your child's name and teacher listed that way your child will receive credit for turning them in.

Birthday Book Program
You are invited to commemorate your child’s (or grandchild’s) special day by making a donation to our Birthday Book Program. For a minimum donation of $18, your child chooses a book from our special Birthday Book Display in the library.
A bookplate will be placed in the book with your student’s name and then your student will be the first one to check out the book. Donations from the program will help purchase new books for our library and update its collection. Complete the form and turn it into the office.
Teacher Focused Wishlists
Many teachers have their own needs and own special requests for items for their classrooms. Room parents will be able to get this information from your child's teacher.
