Cheetah Pride


It’s not too late to join the PTA and donate to the Cheetah Pride Campaign.  This fund pays for the many programs the PTA runs each year - Artists in Residence, teacher grants, curriculum enrichment programs, community events… many “extras” that are no longer paid for by the school district.  The suggested contribution is $120 per family, and it’s tax deductible.  That amount also covers the classroom fund (for parties) and a family PTA membership.  We understand that $120 won’t work for everyone; some people can and will give more, and others less.  But we appreciate every contribution and know that as a community we will work together to fully fund our programs.


Please donate online at www.pay4schoolstuff.com.   For more information and a printable donation form, visit https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B_svSgUB0FEHVF94WVlLUkNRV1k/view
