Lone Pine PTO Fund Raising
Dear Wildcat Parents/Guardians,
A brand new 2013/2014 school year has begun!
The PTO's Goal is to support Lone Pine's staff while enhancing our children's educational opportunities and experiences.
In order to do this, our first task is to raise money needed to fund programs.
How Does PTO Raise Funds?
Our goal is to make fundraising as easy and painless as possible. In the past, Lone Pine parents/guardians have preferred the Direct Donation which is one-time contribution of $35.00 per family. This eliminates the obligation to buy or sell products throughout the year. All profits brought in by direct donation are dedicated to the school, and are fully TAX-DEDUCTABLE!
This year, one of the PTO fundraiser's is United Fundraising as well as having family-oriented events such as there Fall Fair, Book Fair, Restaurant Fundraisers, Skate Nights, Movie Nights, a Cosmic Bowling Night and the Jog-a-Thon. Families can also take part in the many programs available throughout our community such as the Target-Take Charge of Education Program and eScrip. By registering and designating Lone Pine as your school, a percentage of the amount of each purchase you make is donated back to our school. Purchasing certain products can also be beneficial for our school as Box Tops for Education, Labels for Education, and ProjectAPlus.Tyson.com will all give money back to our school for just clipping their emblems and turning them into our school.
What Programs Does PTO Fund?
The money brought in from the fundraisers goes toward the programs already set in place, and to help purchase new and exciting educational-based programs. Because of PTO funding, additional books for the Media Center are going to be purchased and the newer computer lab located below the Media Center is already helping classrooms. In addition, the PTO funds field trips for all grade-levels. Some examples of these trips are Pheasant Field Farms, Wildlife Images, RV Opera, Applegate Trail Museum in Sunny Valley, Crater Lake, Hanley Farm, performances at the Craterian Ginger Rogers Theater and the Lava Beds in Northern California.
Through Curriculum Enhancement, we have supported the Accelerated Reader Program and purchased a new Accelerated Math Program, Successmaker, for students in all grade levels. Every year, a stipend is given directly to teachers to help purchase additional supplies for their classrooms. These programs other wise would be left out of our children's school year if money were not being raised through fundraising and the support of our wonderful parents/guardians.
We are dedicated to our student's education and providing them the best experience possible in a safe environment. The only way to accomplish this goal is with your help and involvement.
