The Importance of Fundraising

Every year there are questions regarding fundraising, some want to understand why we do it, and some want to know why so many.The best way to answer this question is to imagine a school year without fundraising.

The Garrison School PTA provides money for activities, supplies, programs, and fieldtrips outside of the school districts budget.Without fundraising, there would be no money to fund any of the activities that we host each school year. Activities such as the Fall Literacy Evening, Holiday Breakfast with Santa and the Spring Picnic to name a few. There would be no money for extra supplies in the classrooms, no money to help fund fieldtrips, no money to show the teachers how grateful we are for all they do with the Back to School Teacher Luncheon and during Teacher Appreciation Week.

The Garrison School PTA is a group of volunteers happily donating their time to coordinate fundraisers in order to enhance the learning experiences of Garrison students, faculty and families and to create memories that everyone in the Garrison Community will remember for years to come.To do this we need money, to raise money we do fundraisers.

Throughout the year, several different fundraising opportunities will be sent home with your child. In addition, "Popcorn Fridays" occur during the school day. The kids love having the opportunity to purchase popcorn while raising money for the school!At times, you may also see flyers come home for fundraisers at local businesses, restaurants, and retail stores. Finally, we participate in "Box Tops for Education".

You can make a donation directly to the PTA and we will receive 100% of your donation! Thank you for your support!

Every little bit helps!
