A new school year is upon us, and although there are a lot of differences, two things remain the same: the extreme dedication of our teachers and administrators to provide our children with the best possible education, and our Discovery families providing as much support as possible to accomplish their goal.
This year requires the PTA to be creative and adaptable in how it provides support and experiences to students, teachers, and families. We’re asking for your help to donate to our school fund, the “No Frills Fundraiser,” so we can have the flexibility to think outside of the box and still provide a “Discovery community” feel to our staff and families.
Only a week and a half into the 2020-2021 school year, the PTA has already provided iPad stands to all teachers, had yard signs printed for all Discovery families (which are still available, email email@example.com to pick one up), and displayed the “Welcome Back to School” yard sign on campus on the first day of school. The PTA Board has many, many additional plans for the foreseeable future to support the teachers and surprise the students!
The true beauty of this fundraiser is that 100% of all No Frills contributions will go directly towards the Explorers and their programs. It is as simple as that. The average family donation was $125 last year, but we would greatly appreciate a donation in any amount. Our main goal this year is for 100% family participation. Please also note: due to the pandemic, this will be our ONLY fundraiser for the year (whereas we typically hold an auction/parent social in the Spring).
ALL DONATIONS ARE TAX DEDUCTIBLE AND THE PTA IS A 501(c)3 ORGANIZATION THAT IS ELIGIBLE FOR CORPORATE MATCHING CONTRIBUTIONS.
Should you have any specific questions about the No Frills Fundraiser, please feel free to contact our Fundraising VP, Sarah Reynolds, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
