The Washington Elementary School Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) [YOU] fund critical programs that cost $410,000 to deliver. These programs, which are not covered by the district, directly impact the quality of your child’s education and include the following:
- Assistant Teachers: The presence of these additional educators in our classrooms reduces the impact of class size, and allows for more direct focus on your individual students’ needs, whether for extra help or more advanced skills.
- Music, Art, P.E., and STEM programs: These programs round out our children’s educational experience, and have proven positive impacts on child development, well-being, and learning.
- Field Trips: Provide hands-on, experiential and exciting learning opportunities for our children.
Our PRIDE campaign goal is to raise half of our annual budget = $205,000, with 100% community participation. Our focus is on building the community as a whole, 100% of us moving toward the shared goal of enriched education for our students.
Give what you can. We take PRIDE in our diverse community with students and families from all walks of life. Each and every donation counts, no matter the amount. Every single dollar gets us one step closer to our goal of furthering the educational experience of every child, every day, at Washington Elementary.
Thank you for your support of our wonderful and unique school and the programs that we, the entire community, support as members of the PTO. Let’s continue to work together on these important attributes that keep our school community so special:
Respect & Responsibility
