Why Our Fundraising Is Important

The PTA supports many of the programs that our children love and which make our school so special. These include science, music, dance, chess, architecture, book clubs and field trips. We also provide mini-grants to every teacher and therapist. In many instances, PTA funding is the only form  of funding that these programs receive. (The annual budget is readily available for pick-up at the Family Center/PTA Office).

Unfortunately, due to budget cuts over the past few years that are large and ongoing, the financial role played by the PTA in improving our children’s quality of life is bigger than ever. Please take look at the overview of the impact of PTA funding below.*
