Fundraising

The PTA helps helps our school purchase technology, subscriptions, classroom supplies and snacks, programs and materials that are not in their budget.

This year we are looking for projects that benefit the whole school community.

Last year 21-22 we sponsored new library furniture for the school.

 

22-23 Project

We want your ideas for our next project. How would you like to spend the PTA funds? What improvements would you like to see? What does PBE Need? Ask your child. We are looking for ideas and for ways to involve more students, families and community members in this process. Let us know here: https://forms.gle/QYwnYnmPHKAtZVLZ7

 
How it's done...

Teachers, families and local businesses work together to accomplish these goals by:

 

  • Eating out on Spirit Nights (Restaurant nights)
  • Buying Spirit Gear
  • Supporting Race for Education
  • Donating online
  • Shopping at certain local and national retailers
  • Plant Sales (Fall, Winter, Spring)

 

 

 

 

Thursday October 20th

 

Prettyboy Elementary School will be hosting our biggest fundraiser in the fall- our annual Race for Education. We invite family and friends to join us in helping the Prettyboy PTA enhance our school's educational program by raising funds to support school-wide programs and curriculum.

The Direct Donate program allows you to contribute money to the PTA, knowing that 100% of the amount you donate goes directly to support the programs and events sponsored by the PTA.

This option is easy, budget friendly, tax deductible, and VOLUNTARY. Write one check at the beginning of the year and lessen the overload of fundraising. 

Our target goal is to raise $2500 this year through Direct Donate Direct. We ask that if you choose to give, you give what is comfortable for your family.

I hope that you will consider donating to this program as it helps to reduce the number of fundraising requests of our many families. I thank you for your support of the program.

If you have any questions, please contact Contact Direct Donate Chair: Melissa Long at melissajanelong@gmail.com
