Did you know the vast majority of the PTSA's operating revenue comes from our Fundraising events and channels? We rely on the generosity of our community to help us support our staff, school and students.


An auction fundraiser is held ever other year, in the fall of even-numbered years. Proceeds from this event fund our PTSA activities for two years. In the 2014 auction, the PTSA net revenue was over $60,000!

Pass the Hat

During non auction years, we use this fundraiser to support programs, purchasing supplies, music and PE equipment, wetlands and investments in the school grounds. Please download the Pass the Hat form for your generous donation. If your employer supports Matching Gifts, please double your impact and register your donation.

Spaghetti Feed and Silent Auction

Our auction fundraiser is held every other year, in the fall of even-numbered years. In the 2016 auction, the PTSA gross revenue was over $90,000! This year we are planning a mini version of auction that will be held at the school! The Spaghetti Feed and Silent Auction will take place in February 2018 - watch for opportunities to donate and volunteer! 


A fun and loved events for the kids, our yearly Carnival (an end of year event in June) also helps us raise funds for the PTSA.
