2016-2017 PTA Sponsored Events
Direct Give: Starts: September – December 2016
The Direct Give campaign is one of our three fundraisers, and is simply where we ask you to donate to the PTA in support of the programs at our school. $350 per child covers the total amount of funds we need to raise to meet our fundraising goal for 2016/17. You can make a one-time donation or you can give throughout the year at our three main fundraising events: Direct Give, Auction and/or the Move-A-Thon. Go to the Direct Give page and donate online! 100% of the proceeds go to the PTA annual fund and directly benefit your child, so every dollar counts. And 100% participation is essential, please give what you can.

All students participate in the “moving” part of the Move-a-Thon but do not have to collect pledges. For more details about the Move-A-Thon visit our web page under Fundraising!
