How do I raise donations?
Donations are a flat amount (not a pledge per lap). Ask family, friends and coworkers to help support our school. A good way to think about how much to donate: $.05/minute=$10, $1/minute=$20, $2/minutes=$40.
Use the envelope provided by PTA (went home in backpacks 9/15) to collect cash and check donations. Turn the envelope into the main office. All other donations can be made online.
Why are we raising money for PTA?
PTA helps to fund many projects each year. This year we will give every teacher $100 for classroom supplies, help fund art for the hallways and Phase 2 of the Library Remodel that includes more seating. In past years the funding has gone towards additional P.E. equipment needs, a new rug in the art room, Phase 1 of the library and even a complete school atrium remodel.
Are there any other ways I can help?
YES - Participate in the Walk-A-Thon Spirit Week. Bring $1 per day or $5 for the week.
Monday - Come As You Are: PJ & Bedhead
Tuesday - Tacky Tourist: Crazy Outfit/Socks
Wednesday - Shine Bright/Neon
Thursday - PV Pride
