Each year the PTO oversees many efforts in order to raise the monies needed to provide all the wonderful programs and opportunities to the school that would otherwise not be possible. Fundraising and direct donations help support student and teacher programs, school wide and community events, technology upgrades, additional staff members, campus and playground improvements and more.
Everyday Ways to Help Us Save!
The following fundraisers are ways you, and everyone you know, can help our school without spending any additional money! Last year we made close to $5,000 with these types of fundraisers. All you have to do is shop!
