There are many events that happen at the school every year that the PTA funds in part or fully. One event we are trying to raise money for in 2018-19 is an 8th grade week long Resident Actors program with the Chesapeake Shakespeare Company out of Annapolis. During the spring, when the entire 8th grade studies Shakespeare, we would have professional Shakespearan trained actors spend an entire week at our school working with all 8th grade students in their English classes. This is a really amazing opportunity for our school, and one we will hope becomes a yearly event for every future 8th grade. But this requires the school and PTA to come up with about $1000.00 to cover our part of the funds required for the Resident Actors.
Other events are spring and graduation related assemblies, guest speakers and assemblies, and parent oriented events. These programs can’t happen without the fundraising PTA holds.
An easy fundraising source can be identifying LEMS on Amazon Smile so that Amazon gives a small donation to the school whenever you shop on it.
