The Miner Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) is excited to launch our Move! Play! Grow! 2017-2018 fundraising campaign. The campaign will enable us to pay for programs that help our students in grades pre-K through 5th grade:
Move! Increase physical activity throughout the day
Play! Engage in safe, inclusive, and educational play
Grow! Cultivate healthy, secure, and curious minds & bodies
Examples of Move! Play! Grow! programs include:
- Playworks partnership to create a play-powered recess culture
- School garden program & children’s gardening supplies
- Festivals & assemblies to celebrate achievement
- Stage curtains to brighten student performances
- New classroom technologies and STEAM programming
- Restorative justice & social emotional skill-building programs
Total Move! Play! Grow! Fundraising Goal: $18,000
Miner Parents & Caregivers: Consider donating a "Month for Miner"!
Please consider donating a "Month for Miner"! Think about how much you would be paying each month for private school, preschool, or daycare. Donate - or pledge to donate - as much of that as you can. Donations by installments that you pay over the course of the year are welcomed! See below how to make a pledge.
Neighborhood Businesses: Consider a Business Sponsorship!
As a public, Title 1 school where the majority of students are from households that earn less than the median income level in our city, the PTO cannot compete with the fundraising efforts of high-income schools. Your community needs your financial support! See below for Business Sponsorship Levels & Benefits.
