Where does the money go?

Crofton Elementary School PTA
Q&A

Why does the PTA conduct fundraising activities?

Our PTA is a non-profit organization with a goal to enhance and support the educational programs and environment at Crofton Elementary School. In order to provide support to our school and children, to make certain programs and events possible, we need to raise money.

Where does the money go?

Over the past two years, Crofton Elementary PTA has funded over $95,000 in programs, equipment, classroom support and events. Some of these include Accelerated Reader, Math Facts in a Flash, PAW Printers, Science/STEM Fair, Junior Achievement, Chrome books, recess carts and rugs for the classrooms, Reading Olympics, teacher reimbursement, teacher appreciation day as well as fun events such as Monster Mash, Winter Festival, Movie Night and Family Game Night. These programs and events could not exist without PTA fundraising.

What fundraisers can I expect this year?

The PTA would prefer not to ask our students and families to sell products such as wrapping paper and candies. We try to think of fundraising ideas that are community based and bring families together. Many of our fundraisers have been spirit nights held at local restaurants.

Our big fundraiser this year is the silent auction. We are very excited to host this social event that will offer many exciting items to bid on from local businesses as well as unique items and baskets put together by each classroom.
