The Monroe School Parent Teacher Association will spend $60,000 this year towards our children’s education. With the help of Monroe families and local businesses, each year Monroe PTA raises the funds to provide the wonderful programs which benefit your child including instruction from our highly qualified P.E., computer lab and science specialists. The PTA also helps to fund and organize enriching assemblies, fieldtrips and countless other programs. Our major fundraisers are:
The Annual Fund - GOAL: $16,000
This fundraiser is the best bang for your buck; 100% of your money goes directly to our school! Each fall the Monroe School Parent Teacher Association asks parents for donations to ensure that enough money is available to offer our children the very best education and elementary experience they can get. Our goal for the Annual Fund is to raise $17,000 by the end of the year and 80% of it by November 30.
JOG-A-THON - Spring GOAL: $12,000
This fun event is our healthiest and best student powered fundraiser. It is an opportunity for students to make a huge contribution to their school. Everyone is encouraged to participate and collect pledges from neighbors, relatives, friends and the community in support of Monroe. People can make outright donations, or pledge per lap, either way the kids are the ones earning the money for their school. Monroe gets 100% of what each student collects. Students spend a month practicing and getting in shape during their PE time for this fun filled event.
AUCTION EVENT - Every Other Year Spring GOAL: (TBD)
Our goal is to have a silent and live auction major fundraising event every other year. Historically we have had a silent and live auction off-campus one year and then on-campus the next year. It has always been a fun event for parents and staff to spend time socially while helping to raise money for the students. If you are interested in helping plan this event for next year, please contact one of the PTA Boardmembers.
Raffle – GOAL $3000
There are two raffles during the school year that are key to raising funds for the school. Please help by selling as many raffle tickets as possible.
