PTO Finances

The Ada Vista PTO would like to thank you, the Ada Vista Family for your financial support during the 2016/2017 school year.

Last year we raised the following:

Caminata Walk: $34,500

Square 1 Art! : $3,700

Box tops Collections: $1,800

Great Lakes Scrip Program and E-Scrip (Rewards): $1,200

Native Speakers Enrichment Campaign: $52,200

Total: $93,400**

**this is an average of about $200 per child


The money raised supported our school in these ways:

Native Speaking Aides: $58,100

We have five incredible Native Speaking Aides at Ada Vista. Not only do they work with our students in the classroom setting, for individual and group support, but they are around the school for recess, lunch, before and after school, giving our students a rich linguistic experience as they interact with them. The value they add to our school is priceless! *Note: Our support goes towards only the classroom instruction (20 hours per week) with the aides. They are partially funded through the district as well to provide before/after school and lunch/recess help.
