What Does PA Fundraising Support?
Funds raised are used for items/projects to supplement the school’s general budget. Examples include:
● Grade by Grade Enrichment in the form of Cultural Arts Experiences
● Athletic Department
● Contribution to School Operating Budget
● Field Trip Busing
● Teacher Classroom Supplies
● School directory
● Monthly birthday treats

The support from parents on these projects comes in a variety of ways: coordinating the event, supporting the coordinators of the event (by securing volunteers, for example), and/or funding. Programming, curricular, and co-curricular opportunities supported by PA funds are also listed. As you can see, the list is substantial, and exciting! The work of the PA makes a difference in the lives of our students and teachers.
