Fundraising

 

Why Fundraising?

Taylor PTA raises funds to supplement the district budgets to allow the school to provide additional programs and events that complete the curriculum or enhance the learning process. Our goal of the 2017-2018 school year is big!! Taylor PTA would like to add needed books to the Guided Reading Library and classroom libraries. We strive to provide two (2) High Touch/High Tech programs for each classroom which provides STEM based programs to enhance the science curriculum through these hands on programs specific for each grade level. The overall cost for High Touch/High Tech is nearly $14,000. The PTA also funds the roller skating program which is part of the P.E. curriculum for grades 3 through 5. In addition, we support our teachers by planning the class parties and teacher luncheons. 

 

What Fundraising?

There's several ways you can help. 

 

Join the PTA. Dues are used for Taylor programs and supplies.

 

Taylor PTA's main fundraiser is the Walk-a-Thon where students collect donations for laps run/walked for 20 minutes during their specials period.  All money raised goes directly to support Taylor Elementary and your kids.  The students raise money by getting pledges for each lap they run/walk (the laps are short and most kids run 20 laps!). Taylor PTA also works with local sponsors to get them to support our Walk-a-Thon. If you know a business that would like to sponsor, please contact us!

 

Additional smaller fundraisers in the Spring like Val-o-grams and Spring Raffle also help the PTA meet the goal. 

 

Kroger shoppers also can attach their Kroger cards to our school so we can earn money back. 

 

 

Shopping on Amazon.com allows you to link your purchases to raising funds to Taylor. Shop via www.smile.amazon.com and use the PTA Texas Congress Portia Taylor Elementary PTA as your charity of choice. 

 

Collect Box Tops from certain General Mills and other products. Send the clipped Box Tops to school with your student. Taylor receives $0.10 for each Box Top. It is an easy way to get products you need and raise money for Taylor. 

 

Attend the Fall and Spring Book Fair. Book purchases give funds back to Taylor and enhances your child's home library!
