Thank you for your consideration to donate to Forest View and Forest Lake Elementary schools!
2020 has challenged us to reconsider how we fundraise for our schools. As a PTA, it's important to us to honor that our family's emotional, financial, and time availability may look different this year. Give To The Max Day is a safe and convenient way to support your schools in whichever way you're able to. 100% of the money raised goes directly into supporting an engaging learning environment for our students and to supporting our teachers. Here are some of the things that the PTA funds, but is not limited to:
-Grade Level Grants. In past years many classrooms would take fieldtrips in order to create a fun and engaging learning experience for our students. This year fieldtrips are unfortunately not an option. To respond, the PTA voted to invest into Grade Level Grants that would help teachers keep students engaged and excited about learning. Each grade level was/is granted $1,000+ to invest into engaging and academically enriching programs/tools for their (in person & distant) classrooms in order to help students stay excited about school.
-Teacher Grants. A recent study found that the majority of teacher invest $500-$1,000 of their own money into their classrooms. The PTA grants each teacher $150 to help absorb a portion of their financial investments into their classrooms.
-Technology Support. As our school model flows in and out of different learning models, the PTA has set aside money in order to support our schools with any technology support so that our classrooms can continue to function as optimal as possible.
-End of year celebrations . Completing the 2020-2021 will surely be a big accomplishment for staff, families, and students. Annually, we take advantage to celebrate all of the efforts our students have put into their school year!
-Teacher Appreciation. Our teachers are truly the heart of our schools and they have been so resilient and flexible for our community this year. To show gratitude, the PTA covers small gifts for teacher appreciation week as well as providing meals during the long hours of teacher conferences.
DREAMING BIG! If we are so blessed to raise extra fund this year, our PTA would love to invest more into our social/emotional programs and staff. In addition, it would be really neat to put in new electronic schools signs to give our schools a face life. Help us make our dreams come true for our schools!
