Ongoing Fundraisers


There are many ongoing community fundraising programs that benefit our school with very little effort on our part! 


Ralphs Community Rewards Program

It's that time of year to renew your enrollment in the Community Rewards Program through Ralphs grocery stores. In the past years Ladera PTO has earned over $600 from this program! Some other schools in Orange County areas are raising “thousands of dollars” – let’s AIM higher! To enroll or renew your grocery card, go to and click on either "sign in" to renew your account; or "register" to enroll for the first time. Even if you previously registered, you will need to register again beginning September 1st of the current school year.  Click HERE for FAQs and step-by-step registration instructions. At the bottom of your Account Summary, locate the "Community Contributions/Rewards" section and enter Ladera Elementary PTO (ID # 82737). That's all you have to do! Then, every time you shop at Ralphs with your grocery card, a portion of your total bill will be donated to our school. If you would prefer to receive your customized scan bar letter, which is an alternative form of registration, please email your request to Thank you for your support! 


Box Tops for Education

"Box Tops for Education" is one of the EASIEST ways for us to raise funds for the school. In just three simple steps, you can help the school with very minimal effort on your part:


Step 1:  Buy your normal groceries

Step 2:  Look for Box Tops for Education on the packaging and have your child cut them out

Step 3:  Send the Box Tops to school with your child


Individually each Box Top is only worth 5 or 10 cents, however, it’s amazing how quickly they add up. Please ask your friends and family to save them for us, too!
