Joining Together for Student Success
A PTA/SCEF Campaign to Support our Schools
This fall, more than ever, our great San Carlos schools need us. Let’s come together and create the best experience possible for our eager students and outstanding teachers.
Join the TeamKid movement! By giving to your school's PTA and SCEF, you’ll be supporting the local-level funding that bridges the gap between the needs of San Carlos Schools, and our CA state funding. The PTA and SCEF each bring amazing resources to our schools in different ways. Giving to each enables that achievement.
Donations supporting the Parent-Teacher Association will help fund site-specific supply, instructional, and community-building needs, as well as advocate state-wide for students and teachers. PTA funds will be used during the 2020–21 school year and will cover critical cleaning supplies, school supplies, teacher stipends, principal funds, and other school-wide community, administrative and academic support. Suggested levels of support are $125 per child or $250 per family, but all contributions are appreciated. Additional levels of sponsorship are available as are individual PTA memberships
Arundel tries to come close to 100% PTA participation. Let's try to meet that goal again this year!
Classroom & Learning Support: PTA fundraising has a direct impact on the classroom experience and is critical for our current learning situation. Funds provide teachers the flexibility to provide unique and customized learning, inclusive of distance learning needs with generous teacher stipends, literacy aids and classroom materials, as well as outdoor learning spaces.
Community Building & Events: Part of the mission of the PTA is to build community amongst our circle of families. We do this by holding community-building events that bring people together to celebrate our school. Stay tuned for exciting safe events that will be announced soon
Art & Special Programs: PTA funds cover much of the school supplies your child received to support their distance learning. Crayons and ad hoc materials needed to make our budding artists successful.
Advocacy: PTA advocacy efforts are critical both locally and across the state to ensure equitable funding for schools and support laws that improve the lives of all children. Your support of the PTA makes our voices heard in Sacramento and creates real positive change in our schools.
