Some easy ways to support PTO:

Fry’s Community Rewards

If you shop at Fry’s Foods Grocery store, please link up your Fry’s V.I.P. card to Center for Educational Excellence and Fry’s Community Rewards program will automatically donate on your behalf  from your purchases!

School Cents

If you shop and dine at Chandler Fashion Center, please save your receipts to be counted for School Cents rewards for CEE!  You can visit the service desk (located on the second floor of the mall) and have your receipts recorded there or you can turn them into the CEE PTO (receipts will always be returned if needed).  Click HERE to log your receipts online.

Amazon Smile

If you shop on Amazon, please link  your account to Center for Educational Excellence!  On your first visit to AmazonSmile (smile.amazon.com), you need to select a charitable organization to receive donations from eligible purchases before you begin shopping. We will remember your selection, and then every eligible purchase you make at smile.amazon.com will result in a donation.

Box Tops

BTFE is moving towards a completely digital based program – download the Box Tops app to start scanning your receipts and earning $$$ for our school!  You may still turn in any unexpired Box Tops to school – we will still be able to mail them in and receive money for them.  Over the years, CEE has earned $14,204 from Box Tops for Education!  Help us continue to earn valuable funds for our school simply by clipping the Box Tops and turning them in!  


Tuft & Needle 

Looking for a new mattress?  

T&N will donate 25% of ANY purchase made using our unique school LINK!

American Furniture Warehouse  

Buying some new furniture?  AFW will also donate a % back to CEE… Please mention you would like your donation portion of your purchase to go to Center for Educational Excellence when you purchase furniture at AFW.  

About CEE PTO...


Our 'Small & Mighty' PTO is comprised of both parents and teachers who collaborate to host family events, fundraisers, and support our students and teachers through field trips, experiences, and other creative ideas!

PTO's most recent project came from the funds raised at our 3rd Annual family fun Turkey Trot & Color Run in November 2019. Because of the amazing success of this fundraiser, PTO was able to contribute $15,000 (nearly half of the total cost) towards the new playground additions installed in March 2020! Over the previous recent years, PTO has contributed more than $25,000 towards new technology for CEE, with the purchase of high tech portable computer carts and laptops that can easily move from classroom to classroom to provide every single student the opportunity to use technology in the classroom!  CEE PTO welcomes the involvement of parents with a collaborative environment that allows everyone to voice their ideas, creativity and expertise!  CEE PTO does not require a membership fee, rather we encourage your participation any time you are able to join for meetings or volunteer opportunities!
