What Does the PTA Fund?

In 2018-19, the Bubb PTA spent approximately $375 per student on programs, events, and curriculum support at our school. The Bubb PTA funds many programs and activities at our school that otherwise would be cut, cancelled or done without. The vast majority of the PTA budget is raised in one big event -- our Walkathon and Silent Auction (WATSA).

In 2018-19, WATSA and other fundraising, including matching gifts from employers of Bubb parents, raised over $170,000, which helped to pay for programs such as:

  • $23,000 - Enrichment for All after school programs
