So I got this fundraiser packet... but why?? What does the money go towards, anyway??
If you're anything like me, fundraising is one of my least favorite things to do... but our fundraising committee is amazing and has put together some great (delicious) options for helping out the school!
The fundraiser money goes to the PTA to help the school with a variety of projects and teacher support. Examples of projects include: tetherball poles on the playground, soccer goals and basketball hoops, $$ for the teachers directly for classroom supplies, professional development reimbursement for teachers, a new sound system for the auditorium, field-trip t-shirts for all Border Star Dragons, just to name a few! Feel free to review the budget of the PTA if you have any questions about how the money is spent - it was recently reviewed at the last PTA meeting.
Rather than asking people to buy fundraiser items, another option is to donate directly. Head to borderstarpta.org/fundraising and look for the PayPal button!
