Double Good Popcorn Fundraiser

Posted on December 2, 2021

It is that time of the year again! 

SCGSTL has teamed up with Double Good Popcorn to raise money for the technology in our building. Our goal is to one day become a paperless school! Going paperless will give our children the competitive advantage of learning through technology as they navigate their educational journey. It will also help us try to eliminate our carbon footprint by saving trees.  

Raising money for our school technology includes, but is not limited to:

  •  Chromebooks for every child
  •  Upgrades on the smartboards
  • Online resources for children
  • Upgrading WIFI and internet speed
  •  Upgrading online assessments
  • Introduce competitive and informative STREAM programs
  • Provide professional development for teachers on the newest and latest instructional trends for children. 

Why not offer your family, relatives, & friends the opportunity to purchase some of the best gourmet popcorn known to man and help raise money to create a competitive edge for your child(ren)’s education in technology.

The event is 100% online through Pop-Up Stores that you will create on your phone and send out to everyone! There is no money to collect, no forms to fill out, nothing to send out. All orders and payments are made online and the products are shipped directly to the customer ANYWHERE IN THE USA! All you do is keep sharing your Pop-Up store and watch your funds grow! Easy Peasy!

The event is open for 5 DAYS ONLY starting December 6th at 5 pm and ends December 10th at 5 pm.

Here’s What You Do:

  • Download the Double Good App create an account with your name and email. The app is available on IOS and Android
  • Create your OWN pop-up store 
  • Add a quick note in the app as to why you are raising money! Here is an example: “Hi, I’m raising money so I can help my school go paperless so I can learn through technology and so that we can reduce the amount of paper we use in my school” “Please help me meet my fundraising goal!”
  • Use code JQLIBV.

Since we want this to be competitive and fun here are some prizes the top 3 selling classes will earn:

  • 1st Prize: Pizza Party
  • 2nd Prize: Ice Cream Party
  • 3rd Prize: Class NUT card


*FYI: Mr. DelValle and the 7th grade already have a plan … LOL!

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the school so we can help!

Good Luck Everyone,

Principal Morris
