Shop & Earn



Shop & Earn fundraisers allow our community to give back to Montclair Elementary without spending any extra money.

Every family giving (100% is our goal) to one or more of the school fundraising campaigns demonstrates a commitment to our Oakland community school — the #otterlove behind the extraordinary Montclair School experience.

Read on and see how you, too, can help provide our children with an exceptional school experience! 


The holidays are rolling in which means it’s time for our annual winter fundraiser-- See’s Candies!  

The monies raised through See’s Candies sales go directly back to PTA daytime enrichment programs. Though participation in See’s Candies is optional, we encourage everyone to pitch in. How sweet it is that candy orders can make a difference!


  • NOVEMBER 14th Fundraiser begins. Check your child’s backpacks for order forms!
  • DECEMBER 12th Fundraiser ends. Orders due. Please turn in all orders forms with payment (cash or check) on or before this date.
  • DECEMBER 19th Orders will be delivered to your child’s classroom and ready for pick up. Just in time for the holidays!


  • Fill in the pre-sell form completely. It will be returned with your candy.
  • Include your child’s name, a contact number, and teacher’s name with your order
  • Collect money from your supporters when they place their order. Checks should be made payable to Montclair Elementary School PTA.
  • Verify order quantities and money collected.
