Annual Giving Campaign/PTA Membership – Although this new school year has been VERY different from years past, your PD PTA has been hard at work! What we worry about the most at this time is “are we going to raise enough money to support all of our PTA sponsored programs this year?” We sure hope so! That’s why we are again launching our Annual Giving Campaign! This year it will cost the PTA $55/per student to fund all of our current programs, which is a substantial $30 decrease/per student in what we have been requesting from families in years past. There are MANY programs that still need to be funded by the PTA, even without our students physically in school and typical social events happening (e.g., high tech/high touch, staff supplies, classroom subscriptions, Senior Scholarships, accelerated reader, teacher appreciation, to name a few). If every family donated $55 per child, we would not have to do any other fundraisers to cover the items that are already budgeted for this year. While we know this isn’t possible, we are asking parents to donate what suits your family. At this point due to state wide restrictions on social gatherings, we do not anticipate being able to host our typical large fundraising events, such as trivia night. As a result, we will need to be able to fund the current year PTA activities with the amounts raised via the Annual Giving Campaign. We hope to have 100% participation this year.
