New Parent Orientation Information Season 2017-2018

The PPG is a not-for-profit group which raises money to support the Rex Putnam community by sponsoring scholarship for a Rex Putnam graduate. Money raised by volunteers can also be used to pay for school fees and extracurricular activities. 

We (parents and students) volunteer at concession stands at the MODA center during Blazer season.  We can also work other events at the MODA center/Memorial Coliseum.

Financial Information: PPG earns money on ALL sales.  This year the percentage is 10% for alcohol and food at MODA center and Memorial coliseum. 

PPG has a general fund which covers the annual operating cost of PPG and the Putnam scholarship.   PPG annually collects a portion of the funds you raise for operating expenses. The remainder of the money earned by PPG is used for: school registration (middle and high school), school and non-profit club sport fees, fees for ACC credit, lab fees, fees for extracurricular activities including band, choir, dance team, team travel, or travel sponsored through a non-profit, and other non-profit fees that benefit youth (e.g., sports outside of school, scout camp fees). PPG graduates can also apply for a college scholarship to help with tuition and book costs.  The scholarship application needs to be filled out at the beginning of the year, and is good for one academic year.  The application is online on our website.  Money left in your account when you leave the group goes into the PPG general fund. 

Only active members can request request funds for student activities.  Please use online form.  The treasurer writes checks once a week, all requests for the week are due Saturday NOON, with check pickup Monday morning.  Checks can be written to schools, churches or organizations to support youth activities but, NOT to individuals.

All members receive on the job training (in the booth). 

We ask that everyone try to learn all aspects of running the booth.

Please ask if you don’t know something.
