Every year the fundraising committee and school families host a few fundraisers. These events are anything from selling Christmas cards and gift items to a Chili Cook Off and Italian Dinner.
The money that is raised from PTL fundraising opportunities go towards paying for items at the school such as AR books, computer updates, keeping up the facility, bus and transportation, field trips, sport fees, curriculum and many other budgeted items. PTL also raises money by running the concession stands at ballgames and track meets and we do several auction concession stands in the area to raise money.
The money that is raised from our PTL fundraising opportunities go toward paying for items at the school such as AR books, computer updates, keeping up the facility, bus and transportation, field trips and many other budget items. There are many ways you can help, one is by taking part in some of our on-going fundraising opportunities. Listed below are some of those opportunities that we would greatly appreciate you helping us with.
You can put any aluminum cans that you have saved in the large dumpster on the west parking lot of the church and we will take those cans in and turn them into cash. We then use that money for community service projects within Cheney.
