Amazon Wish List
The PTA supports students and educators in our community by distributing needed items. These items directly contribute to the success of our school’s children academically and socially. We rely on the generosity of our community to purchase these items. Current needs can always be found on our Amazon Wish List below. Items will be delivered directly to the PTA for distribution. Thank you for supporting our students through your purchases of items from our Wish List!
Donors Choose: “Teachers ask, you choose”
Our teachers and educators occasionally have projects requesting funding using ‘Donors Choose’. On Donors Choose, teachers request funding for projects in their classrooms, and donors from anywhere in the world can choose to fund their projects. Once the project has been fully funded, Donors Choose ships the requested supplies directly to the school.
We love our volunteers! You do not have to be a PTA member to donate your time as a volunteer and there are many different ways you can volunteer including doing projects at home, doing projects at school, helping with fundraising events, chaperoning a class trip, volunteering in your child’s classroom and more!
