GoPlaySave or No-Fuss - you choose!

The PTA is excited to announce August 4th (Tracks 1,2, &4) and August 18th (Track 3) as the launch date of one of our major fundraisers, the GoPlaySave coupon program! This will be the day your child will take home your fundraising packet with the traditional paper book to purchase and sell to friends and family. The program gives Wakefield Elementary PTA 50% of every sale. We have over 350 merchants participating this year. We will also have a mobile version available.

• Our school will have a link for you to forward to your family and friends enabling our school and your child to get credit for those online sales, or create your own custom link by clicking on the school link and following the simple steps.

• New this year is the option to pay for the paper book online with our school link! Books will be sent home with your student to distribute to people that purchase the paper book with our school link or your custom link.

• GoPlaySave will notify us of your mobile book sales and we will combine that with your paper book sales to determine your family’s total sales

• Incentives will be awarded to those who qualify and sell the most books

• View how the mobile book works!

If you would like to purchase books ahead of the launch date or have any questions, please contact Cheryl Simpson at
