Fundraising is an important part of the Parent Teacher Organization. The majority of the funds we raise, go right back to our teachers and our school. Some of the things we fund are teacher workroom supplies, teacher gifts throughout the year and during teacher appreciation week, and Goodies for Grandparents & Pastries for Parents. Last year, we, also, provided funds to buy items like software for a typing program, an additional scanner for the front office, and scholarships for teachers to attend special training sessions.

Other Fundraising Opportunities
At the beginning of the school year, we will send out Attraction Coupon Books through our students. The cost is $20 per book.
In the fall (Sept. 25-29) and spring (Feb. 19-23), PTO will host a school-wide book fair through Scholastic. All proceeds earned will go towards purchasing more books and supplies for the Media Center. In the 2016-2017 school year, we made over $10,000 during both book fairs for our Media Center.
December 4-8, PTO will host Santa Shoppe, in which our students can buy gifts for friends and family. Gifts range from $.25 and up, with most being around $5. Our young students love being able to pick out a special gift for their mom or dad or special someone!
