November is our Month of Giving at Excelsior Elementary! Each year, the Excelsior PTO (Parent/Teacher Organization) undertakes various fundraising efforts including Read-A-Thon, Box Tops, Mabel's Labels, Amazon Smile, Office Max, and the Kowalski's receipt box, just to name a few.

November - Month of Giving

NOW through Sunday, November 22nd, shop these local Excelsior businesses and they will give back 10% of your total purchase to our school!

Please mention Excelsior Elementary upon check out. If you make a purchase online, please call the store and let them know your purchase supports Excelsior Elementary. As part of our Month of Giving, we encourage you to support the local businesses in Excelsior for holiday gifts and general needs. Our shops in Excelsior need our support NOW more than ever! If you don't need anything now, think about buying gift cards to use on future purchases, purchase a gift for your child's teacher, and/or purchase books that you can donate to our school library. As always, please reach out to our PTO Board with any questions or concerns (
