At Sacajawea, we also enjoy a long-standing tradition of a strong reliance on parents and others contributing their time, talent, and resources. These contributions are what allows our school community to help fill the gaps in a woefully underfunded public education system.
Over 250 parents, teachers, staff, and students came together during the 2018-2019 school year to volunteer on numerous school improvement projects. We met our fundraising goal (with a high parent participation rate), ensuring continued support of key programs.
This year, we hope you’ll help us to continue last year’s success and expand the list of programs and services the PTA already supports, including but not limited to visiting musicians for K-3rd grade & 4th-grade instrumental music program, updating classroom libraries, field trip travel, and much, much more.
Our fundraising GOAL for the 2019-2020 school year is $100,000. At three points during the school year, we’ll invite parents, friends, and our extended community to support Sacajawea Elementary with a financial contribution.
Move-a-Thon Goal: $30,000 (October): The more your kids move the more programs our PTA can offer our school. This is a great way to reach out to friends and family to involve them in your child’s education.
Direct Ask Goal: $25,000 (November/December): Your support enables the PTA to provide funds for programs like the ones listed above. Look for a letter in your child’s take-home packet.
Community Celebration Goal: $45,000 (March): Keep an eye out for the date, and look forward to a fun-filled evening celebrating and supporting our fantastic school. Don’t miss this raise-the-paddle event, kid’s art auction, and more!
