Why Should I Donate?
Wed, Sep 25 11:37pm


To the families that have already donated, thank you for your generous support!

If you are asking, "Why Should I Donate to the PTA now?" let us explain...

The PTA collects donations early in the year, to plan and schedule our proposed programs, which are free to all the students and the school community. This is our ONLY annual fundraiser.

Please consider what goes into our suggested contribution of $50/student:

1. A $50 donation now actually equals $5 per month over the course of the school year.

2. At the current amount of $9,000 raised, we will need to cut the following items out of our budget and possibly other programs.

  • Music for Minors program - weekly music lessons for all students during class hours.
  • Most of the fun PTA-sponsored assemblies at school – such as STEAM Museum, BMX assembly, etc.
  • Community/cultural events and scholarships.

3. Think about which programs are important to you and your child.

  • If you would like your child to learn music in class, donate $10
  • If you would like your child to enjoy art, music, and cultural assemblies at school, donate $15
  • If you would like your child to participate in the Reflections art competition, the Talent Show, the Choir, donate $5
  • If you enjoy community events like PTA Science Sunday, picnics, etc., donate $5
  • If you enjoy PTA Movie Nights, cultural flash mobs, etc., donate $5
  • If you recognize and support need-based financial assistance, donate $5
  • If you would like to ensure that the PTA can fulfill it’s administrative obligations and continue next year, donate $5

4. Help win donation participation prizes for your child's classroom! The top two classrooms who have the most participation will win $50 Amazon gift cards for the teacher to use toward supplies to enrich their classroom.

If you don't want to lose these programs, please donate today!
