PTA Fundraiser- EXTENSION!

Our annual PTA fundraiser ended on 10/26, but we only raised $9K, including company matching. Our goal for this year is $18K. This fundraiser is PTA’s only major fundraiser of the year which funds teacher and classroom grants, student assemblies and more. Our first round of staff grants will be voted on at our 11/14 PTA meeting. (Please help us)Let’s make sure we raise enough money to support them!
