Why is this fundraising even necessary?
Washington state’s public education system is drastically underfunded. To make up for this shortfall, public schools rely on their communities to support schools with both volunteers and financial giving for even basic programs.
The Sacajawea Elementary School community has a strong tradition of parent involvement in terms of volunteering and financial support.
How is the PTA helping to close our funding gap?
Last year over 100 parents, teachers, staff and students came together to volunteer on numerous school improvement projects. We also met our fundraising goal (and had a high parent participation rate), ensuring continued essential support of key programs.
We’d like to continue last year’s success so that we can expand the list of programs and services the PTA supports, such as funding school supplies for the entire school for the entire year, updating our classroom libraries, fully funding field trips, additional curriculum enrichment and more!
Coming together as a community is both rewarding and a lot of fun as we improve our children’s education and build a strong foundation for their future.
What can you do?
Volunteer your time. Help Sacajawea beyond just giving money. There are many volunteering opportunities to fit your time and interests.
Become a room parent. Room parents provide classroom support and are critical to overall fundraising and community success and serve as liaisons between teachers and families, coordinate parents for class projects, activities and field trips.
Come to PTA meetings. All PTA board and general meetings are open to the entire Sacajawea community. Look for meeting dates in your newsletters and on the sign board. Join us if you can!
Join the Sacajawea Dads Group (all welcome!). PTA meetings not your thing? A great, inclusive, and awesome group of parents meet on the first Thursday of each month to talk about our school in a casual way. Drop Web Peirce (firstname.lastname@example.org) a line for more info.
