Our PTA fundraises to help fund fun and educational programs, events, and field strips for the students. We also help to support our teachers and staff and help with classroom needs or professional development. Our largest contribution from our fundraising efforts, however, goes fund the gap at the district level to help pay for additional staff. This includes instructional assistants, and our fantastic guidance counselor, Ms. Schneider. For the last two years, we have been working with a leaner budget, but we are hoping to grow that as our world and our school start to open back up.
We feel it is really important to show families a breakdown of where the money we raise is spent.
Take a look at a breakdown of our current budget:
HOW YOU CAN HELP
Join the PTA.
This is the easiest way to help. Our goal is to support the school in a way that enriches the school life of all the children at Green Lake Elementary. Membership gives you access to discounts and perks through the national PTA, but more importantly, it allows us to continue to provide the programs that we are known for. The membership also allows you to help us decide how best to allocate our funding.
We cannot have any of our amazing programs without the help of volunteers. There are opportunities for every skill level and time commitment.
With your generosity, we can continue to fund the programs our families love, as well as fill the gap left by a lack of state and federal funding.
There are a number of ways to give.
Set up a monthly recurring donation or donate to a specific program or initiative via
PayPal. You can use the notes to label your donation (e.g. "staff appreciation").
For a one-time gift, you can make a tax-deductible donation anytime on our school auction website.
Don't forget corporate matching! Our nonprofit ID tax number is 91-144923.
Check with your HR department to see if your company offers corporate matching.
