Here are some easy ways to donate to the PTA. Thank you for supporting NSES PTA!


Fill CLYNK bags with empty returnable bottles and cans. Once filled, bring bags to local Hannaford and at the CLYNK kiosk, scan the bag’s identification tag with the hand scanner and place the bag inside the unlocked door. 100% of the money is donated directly to our PTA. 

We have CLYNK bags available at the school. Email us ( to arrange pick-up or stop in the school's main office during business hours.

If you already use CLYNK, you can redirect your funds to the New Scotland Elementary School PTA (instructions here if you already have an account or here if you're setting up a new account).

Join and/or donate to the PTA

You can donate any dollar amount to the PTA and your donation is tax-deductible (our Federal ID number is 23-7211270). Donations can be made online (there is a $0.50 + 3.29% fee) or in person at any of our meetings with cash or check.

We need 25 members a year to remain in good standing as a PTA. The fee is $5 if paid in cash or check (bring this form to a PTA meeting) or $5.68 if paid online. Of this fee, our PTA will receive $1, and the NYS PTA receives $4. You can still participate in the PTA if you are not a paid member.

Box Tops

There are over 80 brands and 350 products that participate in Box Tops program. The PTA receives $0.10 for every digital "box top" you submit. It no longer works to save the physical box tops - you have to do this digitally.

Donating is simple, fast and easy: Just use the Box Top App on your phone to take a photo of your receipt, and eligible items are automatically identified. Download the Box Tops App on your smartphone and follow the instructions to search for New Scotland Elementary School
