Fundraising & Spending

Our Events

A variety of Forest Road PTO fundraisers are held throughout the year to support student programs and activities and other school projects. For further information on any of the programs, contact us or contact one of the committee chairs from the officers’ page.


In an attempt to minimize smaller fundraisers, Boosterthon is held in the fall, that kicks off with a pep rally and culminates with a fun run. It has become our most profitable fundraiser to date.

Used Toy Sale

The PTO holds their annual fundraiser every fall. This event is a great opportunity for community members to sell their unwanted toys and send them off to new kids who will love and play with them. This green fundraiser allows sellers to keep 60% of the selling price while 40% goes to the PTO.

“Run for District 102″ Fun Run and 5K

This fundraiser is held in cooperation with District 102 schools in order to encourage physical fitness, build district spirit and raise funds for participating schools. For more information, please click on the following link: Run for District 102 5K and Fun Run

Restaurant Nights

If you’re planning to go out to eat with your family during the school year, then Restaurant fundraising is an easy fundraiser for you to support. The Committee Chair dedicates a local restaurant one day per month for Forest Road families to dine in or take out. Forest Road can earn up to 25% of all total sales.

Trivia Night

Round up a table of 10-12 friends, fill your coolers (beer, wine and food permitted) and come out for a night of fun and friendly competition at the La Grange Park Park District. The cost is $20 a person and is a great opportunity to meet other parents and members of the community.

Flying High Gym Nights

Flying High Fun Nights are a great way for kids to burn off some energy while raising funds for the PTO. Lasting from 7-10PM, kids can run, jump, tumble and eat some pizza with their friends!

Box Tops

Clip unexpired Box Tops from a variety of General Mills products and send them into school with your student. The school gets sent money for each box top we collect!
