How Are PTA Funds Used?


All of the money raised by the PTA directly benefits our children and school. Our primary objective as a PTA is to provide our school with funds, programs, resources and services that will enrich and maximize the education of every child. To meet this important objective, we must fundraise. Though it may not be our favorite responsibility, it is a necessary one. Our school community must raise money if we want to provide our children with educational programs, technology, supplies and family events.

The PTA provides funds for school safety, academic programs, school calendars, Wednesday take-home folders, student agendas, teacher educational classroom funds, technology, PE equipment, awards for the students, end of year 5th grade activities and more. We also provide great family fun throughout the year like, BINGO Night, Family Fun Night, and other activities for the kids, such as our Book Fairs and Holiday Shop. Please support our efforts!


There are so many ways to support PPE by shopping! Click here or read below about all of the ways you can support PPE in your everyday activities and shopping lists. It’s easy and fun!

This fundraising program is year round.
