Fundraising The fundraising campaign concluded with a total of $256,046 raised for our kids! This GENEROUS amount was contributed by 95% of our school community. Thank you!Our entire school is getting a popcorn party to celebrate this amazing response!The Cascadia PTA is grateful and encouraged. Almost every member of our community contributed their support – their “piece of the puzzle” – and made this campaign a resounding success. Thanks to your support:

A counselor is now available to our kids. Joined with tutors, resource specialists and a librarian assistant, your donations will meet the needs of our student body.

Extracurricular activities to engage each student’s whole self can continue as planned. From music and art, to gardening and Shakespeare, PTA funding is critical to realize the actualization of these programs.

The Cascadia PTA is grateful for your willingness to come together and start this year off with a bang. Thank you for your support, and for the support of our teachers and principal in creating a successful school year.

Box Tops For Education

Thank you for all the BoxTops that you have collected and brought in to the office!
The collection box is in the corner to the left as you enter office.
The money collected through BoxTops is deposited into our school’s Self Help Fund; money from this fund pays for things teachers need, staff room supplies, field trip scholarships, and other small special needs beyond the regular budgets.

Learn more about the program: http://www.boxtops4education.com/about including how you can get coupons and upload receipts to contribute.

Box Tops collection is a parent volunteer effort and separate from PTA fundraising, who we appreciate for all they do!
