Ways to Give


Direct Contributions

Making a direct financial contribution to the fund is the fastest way to make an impact.

To donate to the general fund (enrichment), please click  here.


Check out  other initiatives throughout the year here


Fundraiser Participation

The PTA hosts many fundraisers and events throughout the year.


This is a catch two birds with one stone where we get to contribute to the general fund and just have fun (or eat donuts, or get rid of gently used clothes or... we'll think of something else)!


Participate and Volunteer!

If you can spare time and energy, please join us to help at several events! And our Wellness Council can always use extra hands for composting and gardening!
