Give by Getting Groceries

Helping our school raise money is easier than ever!  Did you know you can give just by shopping at our local Tom Thumb and Kroger stores?  Visit the customer service desk next time you are shopping, tell them you are from Abbett Elementary and would like to give back!  

WATCH  D.O.G.S.

Watch D.O.G.S. is back for another great year! We love all of the wonderful Abbett Dads that volunteer their time for a day.  The students absolutely adore having the Watch D.O.G.S. Dad read stories to their class, play games at recess, help out during craft time, join them for lunch, and much more!  If you would like to become a Watch D.O.G.S. Dad please visit the front office for more information or email our coordinator, Anna Berry.

Donors Choose

Several teachers on the Abbett campus work through Donors Choose to procure supplies for their classrooms. Supporters simply choose the project they would like to fund, and then donate online. After the project is funded, donors receive thank you notes from the students, an impact letter from the teacher, and pictures of the materials in action. Click below to support a classroom.

Texas Roadhouse...Yum!

Hey Kids!  Make sure to take your parents to Texas Roadhouse the first Thursday of every month.  Tell your waiter you are a student at Abbett Elementary and the restaurant will donate 10% of your check to our PTA.  Have great food and help your school all at the same time!  Anyone can help, not just students, so be sure to tell your friends and family.  Texas Roadhouse is located at 5012 North President George Bush Highway.
