Where does our Boosterthon money go?
Thank you Panther families for an amazing fall fundraiser, reaching $47,000 in pledges! We'd like to share a little about where that money is going this year.
Every year, the PKES PTO gives $20,000 from our Boosterthon funds straight back to the school for educational licenses and materials. Here's a breakdown of how that $20,000 fund was spent this year:
Literacy Footprints kits for the classrooms: $10,350.00
Benchmark assessment systems: $5,948.13
Units of study for teaching reading series: $1,966.77
Units of study for teaching reading video orientations: $1,966.77
Raz-Kids.com subscriptions: $1,604.19
This October, PTO also allocated $10,000 in PTO funds to assist with software for the implementation of the house system and expenses for 7 PKES staff members to attend professional development in New York City with authentic implementations of the units of study in reading and writing across all grade levels. While there, the teachers also attended sessions at The Teachers College during their Reading and Writing Reunion hosted by Columbia University.
Other things Boosterthon money goes to — along with all other PTO fundraising — includes: the veterans breakfast, Red Ribbon week, career day, field day, extracurricular requests from teachers and administration — such as our $3,900 cafeteria mural installed over the summer — annual extra funding for related arts classrooms and special needs classrooms, monthly staff luncheons and other teacher appreciation efforts, and more.
