Please consider supporting Lake Hills Elementary PTSA on this Giving Tuesday - we need your help!
As you know, the Lake Hills Elementary School PTSA is a nonprofit organization, which means we rely on continual fundraising and donations in order to support our families, students, teachers and the school - both inside and outside of the classroom. We strive to build a strong community of parents who feel empowered in their child's education and welcomed to support our teachers and school.
Typically, our annual budget is $15,000. The top three expenses we cover are:
- Annual Teacher Classroom Grants for teachers to use on classroom supplies
- Free Lake Hills T-Shirts for students to use for Jag Pride days and special events like field trips, field day and concerts
- Free Family Movie Nights for families to come together for a meal and movie
In October 2019, the LHE PTSA granted a total of $4000 in scholarships to LHE teachers and classrooms, which significantly impacts our 2019-20 budget. But we know it is important to provide this support to our local school and we do not want to deny teachers and classrooms this much-needed financial assistance. In order to continue building up our students, teachers and families, WE NEED YOUR HELP!
In the new year, we would love to sponsor three more movie nights, fund our annual yearbook, provide a school directory to every LHE family, as well as provide scholarships for families to join the PTSA. If we are able to cover our planned expenses, we would also like to expand our budget to include providing more parent education opportunities, more enrichment grants for field trips, and more community-building events.
In order to meet our fiscal goals, we need to raise $20,000 this year. We would like to raise 50% of it by the end of 2019. (YES, this is a lofty goal, but we know it’s possible!)
If charitable giving is part of your holiday season this year, please consider giving back to our community and supporting your local school. We also accept corporate matches! By making a donation to the Lake Hills Elementary School PTSA, you are helping create an even stronger Lake Hills Community.
