Pay It Forward Fall Fundraiser
***This year’s goal is $64,000!***
100% of funds raised stay at TES!
YOU ASKED AND WE LISTENED! NO SELLING OR FUN RUN! Throughout the year, students participate in a variety of fun and exciting PTO sponsored activities that help support the educational process and foster the “Tahoma Elementary School Cubs Experience” that makes their time special. In order to fund all of our wonderful teachers and programs for kids, the Tahoma Elementary PTO relies heavily upon the support of all our parents for fundraising efforts. This will be our main fundraiser of the year.
The PTO has heard your feedback and we understand that most of you enjoyed not having your kids sell things or do a fun run last year, but would like to engage them in the fundraising process. We would encourage your children to reach out to grandparents, other family, friends, and neighbors to ask them to help support our school. For every donation received, your child can Pay It Forward by completing a random act of kindness. Some ideas include:
- thanking a teacher
- complimenting a stranger
- sending a friend a positive note
- picking trash up off the street
- or anything your family thinks would help better our community!
As our operating budget has increased to serve over 750 kids, the PTO estimates that in order to continue to provide these activities and programs this year, it will cost a minimum of $85 per student!. We are asking that you consider donating this amount (or whatever amount is comfortable for your family). We understand the time investment and financial constraints some of our families face, but we also want to make sure we can continue to provide these activities to all of our children.
To donate, simply go to our PTO shop and purchase a Pay It Forward Fundraiser to donate the full $85/student or Donate Now to donate in increments of $10.
Just like last year, as we reach our goal, the PTO will be offering fun rewards to the entire student body! GO CUBS!
