PTA fundraising efforts directly support the school’s budget by paying for the things we can, thereby enabling Principal Peterson to stretch her limited Department of Education funds and give our children a gr8 education that fosters creativity, academic excellence, respect, and intellectual curiosity.
This year, money donated by our families as well as by businesses is funding staff positions enabling both campuses full-time specialty teachers, guidance counselors and staff development. These donations also fund:
- Teaching assistants
- Enrichment programs
- Capital improvements
- Classroom and office supplies
- Middle school exploration programs
- Bridges Math Curriculum materials at the lower school
- PupilPath portal for grading and assignments at the middle school
- Kids Orbit recess assistance at the lower school
- Human development and sexuality residency at the middle school
There are many ways to give. You can attend and participate in PTA events, like the Readathon, the Auction, and the Paddlewheeler. You can buy PS8/MS8 apparel and even support our school when you shop at outside vendors. You can give online, including by way of easy-to-manage monthly installments, or by check made out to the PS8 PTA and sent to:
