Message from the PTA Executive Board:
MAKE AN END OF YEAR, TAX-DEDUCTIBLE DONATION TO THE ANNUAL APPEAL TODAY
So far this year, contributions to the PTA’s Annual Appeal have paid for:
- The K-8 Halloween Party
- Classroom supplies for kindergarten, 1st, 4th, and 5th grades
- The 5th grade field trip to the United Nations
- The HS math club's MAA AMC math competition registration fee
- Lisa's excellent series of speakers and workshops (Executive Function, Anxiety)
- AP US History & Government teacher training
- The high school Baroque Ensemble’s trip to Early Music America's 2023 Summit in Boston
The bad news is, we’ve raised just $34K of our $80K parent/guardian fundraising goal. In order to continue supporting programs like those described above, we need your contributions ASAP. The PTA’s budget is over $120,000/year. That money doesn’t just appear out of thin air. We have to raise if TOGETHER.
Can you contribute $400 (or $800 or $1,200) to your child's education this year?
Please, take a moment to make your donation by credit card, PayPal or check today. Info for all can be found on the PTA fundraising page.
On behalf of all our children, thank you so much!
PTA MEETING LOCATION CHANGE!
The next PTA General Membership Meeting, scheduled for Tuesday, December 12 at 5:30pm, will be held at KMC (in the Upper Lobby at Merkin Hall). Hope to see you there!
