WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO BUILD THE NEST?
The primary fundraiser for Kenrose is called “Build the Nest” (BTN). Our school mascot is the Cardinal, so we like to think of the students as our cardinals and the school as their nest!
Several years ago, the Kenrose PTO voted to stop having students/families raise their donations by selling popcorn, wrapping paper, etc. and changed to a check writing campaign. Parents write a check for the suggested dollar amount per child or what they can afford.
Historically, this has been a very successful program, so no additional fundraisers have been needed. Our fundraising goal has always been reached because of the generosity of our Kenrose community.
how does it work?
In the Fall, the Kenrose PTO will send information and reminders about BTN and how to donate. Our goal is to have 100% of families participate/fill out a form. You can participate in one of two ways:
Build the Nest Pledge Forms
Yellow Build the Nest Forms are sent home with your child at the start of the campaign. Parents are asked to fill out the form and return it to school, regardless of whether a contribution is being made.

You may also fill out your form & make a donation online! Click the link below to access the online form.
Daily Drawings & Prizes
Each student who turns in a completed BTN pledge form will be entered into a daily drawing for small participation prizes. The drawing is done during the morning announcements throughout the campaign window.
Additionally, the first class in each grade who turns in 100% of their forms by the yearly deadline will receive a pizza party! After the pizza winner for each grade is declared, all other classes with 100% participation will receive ice cream at lunch.
