How To Help

There are many ways you can make a difference for Fox River Academy and its students, faculty, and parents.  Please take a minute to browse the following opportunities to volunteer, participate in a fundraiser or donate a needed item.


SCRIP/GIFT CARD FUNDRAISER  The FRA Scrip fundraiser is a perfect way to help Fox River Academy while building your student's field trip account.  When you purchase gift cards or certificates for area businesses including Woodmans, Copps, Kwik Trip, Marcus Theatres, Fleet Farm, Festival and more, FRA receives a percentage of the profit.  If you have a child who attends FRA, half of this percentage is deposited into your student's field trip account.  To order or for more info, please contact Theresa Weglarz at 882-1291 or  Click here to purchase gift cards in set amounts from local, commonly frequented businesses.  Learn more about how to use script to save on field trip by clicking here.

ACOCA COFFEE  Fox River Academy Coffee Sales as a service to our school community.  Acoca Coffee on College Avenue is roasting coffee for us.  With this partnership we can offer 40 varieties of coffee that include both regular and decaffeinated selections in cool, new sizes.  You can now buy all varieties of coffee in 16oz. (1 full lb.) whole or ground bean bags, and in 4oz. (quarter lb.) whole or ground bean bags. 

Your order will be roasted fresh by Acoca Coffee and delivered to school.   Please send your order form with payment to the Jefferson Elementary office. Your orders will be sent home with your child in about a week. 

If you have any questions please contact Peggy Lynch at
