2017-18 Annual Fund

 

Cascadia PTA supplies critical funding and support for a host of programs that make our school unique and effective. We hold only one fundraising drive per year to support our school – an Annual Fund drive that aims to raise $256,500 to fund a successful 2017-2018 school year! Watch out for your family’s red envelope in the first months of the school year.

What does my donation support?

Providing funding and volunteer support for a wide variety of school activities and events throughout the year, your donations to the Cascadia PTA supplement district salary allocations by fully or partially funding several staff positions. In the 2017-2018 school year, these will include:

  • Instrumental Music Teachers
  • Library Assistant
  • Reading/Writing Specialist
  • Tutors & Administrative Help

Additionally, Cascadia PTA supports core programming that we believe is essential to the success of our school. These programs are designed to enhance the core curriculum with expanded learning opportunities. In 2017-2018, Cascadia PTA will be funding:

Garden Program

Third graders harvest, plant, and care for the school garden in an integrated program run by our Garden Educator, Rowan.


Instrumental Music

Fourth and fifth graders have the opportunity to take instrumental music lessons during school hours and put on a great performance to share their progress.


Drama


Fifth graders study and perform Shakespeare plays with the help of an incredible and dedicated team of drama teachers.


Reflections Art Contest


Run by the National PTA, students may submit works of art based on a common theme. Lots of fun, and finalists will see their work displayed at Seattle Center!


Grants to Teachers

Our teachers are the heart of our school. Grants to fund teacher projects in the school are available because of PTA donations.

 

Remember, we hold only one fundraising drive per year to make this possible. Please watch out for your family’s red envelope in the first months of the school year, and give generously to make this school year successful for our kids.
