Your PTSA Contributions at Work!

One of the PTSA's biggest funding efforts is Departmental Grants, with the various departments submitting grants for a project, material or equipment above and beyond what the school or county can fund.  

These grants help support students and teachers by adding even more depth, creativity and engagement in the classroom.

 Your donations and support of the PTSA make all this possible!  

We're fortunate to hear "I can't thank the PTSA enough for their support!" and want to share with all!
