Please Donate to the Annual Fund!
Total school participation is only 40% to date. 
Your participation now is as important as your gift.  If you haven't already contributed, give what you can, but please give something. The suggested amount is $500 (the PTA spends $800 on each child) ... It's an investment in your children's education and your community!

There's still time to score more recess and that 16 Handles Ice Cream Party! Between now and Jan 16 any other grade(s) that reach 50% participation will have one extra recess and any grade(s) that reach 80% will have a 16 Handles ice-cream party. And again, congratulations and thank fyou to our KINDERGARTEN families for reaching 54% and getting that extra recess!

Please Donate Now!

The Annual Fund makes up half of this year's PTA budget. The PTA pays for (K-2) Science Enrichment, Math & Literacy Professional Development for our teachers, Chess Club, Classroom Books, Dance, Field Trips, Theater, PS11 Garden... and that's just some of the programs!
