WHAT WE DO…
We provide lots of support to our teachers, staff, students and parents. PTA enjoys a great deal of support from those individuals as well. In short, we have a wonderful working relationship that we work very hard to continue each year. As a volunteer, you can read to students with our “Reading is Fundamental” program, help in the lunch room, provide support for one of our “specials” teachers (Art, Music or P.E.), volunteer at the Springfield PTA Clothing Bank or help with one of our service projects such as Fall Festival or Book Fair. Many of these volunteer positions require a small amount of time and do not have to be done on a regular basis. In the last couple of years, we’ve made improvements to the facilities by painting the office, purchasing a new refrigerator for the teachers, and upgrading
security with the purchase of cameras.
HOW WE DO IT…
Each year, PTA has a “Fall Fundraiser”. Due to past success and the great deals it offers our families, we will once again be selling Discount Cards. This has been a very profitable fundraiser for us in the past and had enabled us to fund our programs you rely upon each year. There are several discounts that will literally pay for the card with a few uses. Look for the fundraiser flyer to come home in the next couple weeks for info on how you can help.
Last year we were able to cover expenses without a Spring Fundraiser. Instead of foregoing it, we sold chocolates and designated all the profit. We were able to raise $3,500 for security cameras.
