An important message from the PTO
Stevens Creek families!
We have a few CRITICAL announcements to share for your attention, and hope that you take the time to help us out!
Our Dire Need for PTO Fundraising!
As with so many businesses and charities, this year finds Stevens Creek Elementary PTO critically low on in-coming donations to our PTO. Our Direct Donations are far below this same point last year, and though we can assume a number of reasons for this, the outcome of not meeting our fundraising goal for this school year will impact our school community directly as soon as this coming fall.
Failure to meet our minumum fundraising goal, we will be forced to make some very hard hitting decisions to programs and personnel at our school. These are PTO-funded items, include cutting instructional aides, funds to the Teacher Grants program, and other impactful items. See Mrs. Maisen's email for district levers that are considered.
Our fundraising goal for this year is $110k. We've been hosting fundraising events throughout the year, as well as driving a Direct Donation ask of $1k from each Stevens Creek family. Today, we strongly encourage you to please consider donating what you can via Direct Donation, and sharing our fundraising events with your family and friends. As a reminder, our PTO is a charitable foundation, and all donations are not only tax deductible but are also eligible for Company Matching, if your company allows. Please help us reach our goal!!
Upcoming Events at Stevens Creek:
- Joining Together to Save Our CUSD Schools
If you have not already done so, please take a moment to visit www.YesforCUSD.org and commit your support to the parcel tax measure coming to this spring's ballot.
Failure of passing this parcel tax WILL DEFINITELY trigger CUSD Board levers - including cut to library and tech services on campus, Principal cuts causing principals be assigned to cover more than 1 school, larger classroom sizes and potential teacher layoffs in Year 1. Then in Year 2 school closures, which Stevens Creek is on the list of potential closures.
At this site, you'll have two options, Contribute and Voice Your Support and Voice Your Support. We ask that our Stevens Creek families consider Voice Your Support, at minimum, and to please do so at your earliest convenience.
