Genesee Hill Elementary is unique in part because of our extraordinary PTA. Each year the PTA closes the funding gap by raising money to support important resources that help our children and teachers reach their full potential.
PTA funds many fundamental programs and services, provides academic and education resources, and sponsors a variety of special events.
Our parents donate their money, time, and talent so that every student can share the benefits of our supporting community. Join us! 100% participation is what’s most important.
GIVE MONEY: Our 2016-17 Budget Goal is $245,000, or $350 per student. We keep fundraising simple with just one general campaign and two major events.
- Direct Give: This campaign runs September through December, 2016. It is a direct request to families to donate funds. This year we aim to have 100% participation. Please give what you can. No donation is too small!
- Annual Auction: Save the date for March 18, 2017 for the Red Carpet Gala!
- Move-A-Thon: This fitness celebration and fundraiser in one is planned for May, 2017. This is a great way to involve our community and to reach out to neighborhood businesses, family, and friends to help raise your family donation goal.
You can choose to participate in one or more ways. Make your donation go farther and fill out a Matching Funds form, if your employer participates in a matching gift program.
GIVE TIME: The day-to-day operations of our school and PTA sponsored events depend on everyone contributing time. Make sure to check the School Bulletins, the PTA Blog, and classroom emails, for requests for current and upcoming volunteer needs throughout the year. Some of the ways to volunteer are:
- Room Parents: help teachers with in-classroom volunteer needs and classroom parties/events
- In-classroom volunteers (starts in October)
- Playground and lunchroom monitors
- Event volunteers (throughout the year)
GIVE TALENT: Not all volunteer needs are during the school day! There are other ways to lend your talent to our school. We are always looking for additional resources or connections to resources – from graphic designers and printing services to photographers, videographers, project managers for events and, of course, the PTA Board!
