An important aspect of our organization is raising money to support all the wonderful educational and extracurricular programs for our students. The PTA supports field trips, performing arts events, movie night, craft nights, parent/child events, after school program scholarships, and other programs designed to enrich the educational and community experiences of our students. The PTA also provides direct classroom and teacher support but all of this takes money.
