Fundraising… just a mention of the word sends chills down many a parent’s spine. More often than not, it becomes a chore for parents to oversee due to going around to co-workers and family members, finding and completing forms, remembering when all the "stuff" is due, and the list goes on. So you may ask, "Why do schools do it?" Have you ever thought: "Where does all the money go? Who benefits from this?"
The short answer is, our children benefit. The community benefits. Every time BoxTops are cut out, Labels peeled off soup cans, a book is bought at a book fair, or a new person joins the PTA... children will benefit. Fundraisers are designed to meet goals to enhance the learning environment of the school, and to provide additional tools and resources for teachers and students.
Information regarding school specific fundraisers will be found on each school's website. If you have questions pertaining to a fundraising opportunity, please contact the school.
