Pre-K PTA Giving & Support

Donate to the Annual Fund

  

 

The Annual Fund is a fundraising effort by the PTA to support our school. This year, more than ever, our students, teachers, and administrators need your support. The PTA helps get extra funds into teacher's hands so that they have all of the safety and curricular supplies they need. Already this year, the PTA has helped the school purchase air purifiers and UV sanitizers in response to Covid, devices for remote learning, gift cards for teachers to purchase supplies and books that celebrate diversity for every classroom. We can only continue to help fund items for our students and teachers with your help. 

Our goal this year is to raise $25,000. We hope that every family who is able will consider making a gift at a level that is right for them. Whether you are a family that can afford to donate $10 or a family that can give $1000, your gift makes a difference.

A contribution to the Annual Fund is a tax-deductible gift to the PTA. The PTA is a non-profit (501c3) organization that is separate from the school. As a non-profit, the PTA can issue tax-deductible receipts for your contribution. 

We hope that you will give as generously as you can. You can make an online donation here

Current Fundraising

K280 READATHON

The K280 PTA, in a partnership with the K280 Diversity Committee and Terrace Books, is excited to announce our 2021 Read-a-Thon. This month-long fundraiser began Tuesday, March 1 and ends Tuesday April 6. We are asking families to commit to reading a certain number of minutes and raise donations from friends and families. Classes that read the most minutes each week will get gift cards from Terrace Books. Signing up is easy and fast and you can log and track your minutes from anywhere. 

All funds raised directly benefit classes at K280 and will be used to pay for things such as air filters, diverse books for every classroom, butterfly growing kits for every classroom, materials for teachers, end-of-the-year gifts for every child and a legacy gift that can benefit K280 children for years to come.

SQUARE 1 ART

  

Square 1 Art is a simple fundraiser. Your child creates art on a special template. You take a photo of the art. You upload it. You go shopping for a family keepsake. Orders placed by Wednesday May 19 will be delivered to your home before Father’s Day.  

We created this parent packet that includes the art paper template, a tips sheet and examples of art projects appropriate for young children. You can also go to the Square 1 Art Parent Portal for video overviews of the process, more lesson plans and a gallery of products. When you’re done, search for K280 School of Journeys on the upload page. You can even use filters to enhance the image as well as add text to the art. 

If you have questions, please contact the PTA at k280pta@ps10.org
