Our Fall Fundraiser begins this week. We have partnered with Charleston Wrap and Mixed Bags to help us raise money for the school. Although we have a few smaller fundraisers during the year like That Third Thursday Thing!, this is the main fundraiser for our school. The PTSA uses the funds to provide most of the activities and events at our school: classroom materials and supplies, awards and goodies at our Excellent Eagle Assemblies and Honor Roll Assemblies, Art supplies, playground balls and equipment, office supplies, the scholastic Reader program, Dads and Donuts/Moms and Muffins, and many other activities taking place at Poet. The biggest item on the annual PTSA budget is of course Field Trips. With nearly 600 students, the PTSA spends upwards of $12,000 to $14,000 every year on Field Trips! That is a tremendous amount of money and our PTSA wants to continue providing these valuable hands-on experiences for our students. For the past few years the school has been able to raise roughly $15,000 from the Fall Fundraiser. As you can see, most of that money goes for Field Trips alone. All other funds made from this fundraiser and other smaller fundraisers go to cover other items in the PTSA budget. Every little bit helps and we appreciate all the help and support you can provide!
