Annual Fund Launches!
The Annual Fund is the PTO’s biggest fundraiser of the year. Funds raised during this drive support student enrichment, teacher’s classroom wish lists, technology purchases, and many other initiatives. This year, to kick off the Annual Fund, we are introducing a matching program! PTO members have agreed to match donations received through midnight Friday, October 13th up to a total of $7,000. Annual Fund contributions can be made via PayPal on the Annual Fund page or by check payable to Countryside Elementary School PTO and left in the PTO mailbox at school.
