All volunteers must register annually with CMS. You can find instructions for how to complete the volunteer form here.

Relink your Harris Teeter VIC Cards or Enroll in Publix Partners

Link Your Harris Teeter VIC card to Endhaven! School # 5354 at the register or online. If you shop at Publix, you can also enroll in the Publix Partner programs. To enroll, join Club Publix. If you’re already a member, log in to your account and select My Publix Partner to search for the school of your choice. Remember to pay with the Publix app or enter your phone number at checkout each time you make an eligible purchase. Please note that you must take this action for Endhaven to receive Publix Partners earnings for your eligible purchases.

Shop Amazon Smile

Did you know that you can help raise funds for Endhaven just by shopping on Amazon? Yes, it is true and it’s as easy as adding a smile! The difference is that when you shop on AmazonSmile (smile.amazon.com), the AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the price of eligible purchases to Endhaven. All you have to do is use the smile.amazon.com link and make sure you’ve selected Endhaven Elementary as your organization of choice.

Room Parents Needed

If you are interested in being a room parent for your classroom or helping to support a class without a room parent, please contact your teacher or ptaendhaven@gmail.com. Room parent duties include distributing a monthly email to your class families, coordinating supplies for class parties, and Teacher Appreciation Week!

Fifth graders will be fundraising for their End of Year events several times throughout the year. Please help support our fifth grade friends! 5th grade parents, look out for more information coming soon about the first 5th grade fundraiser.
