The PTO uses the funds raised to supplement some of the schools budget for the teachers, purchasing special items that each teacher would like for their classroom. In the past 10 years, the PTO has been fortunate enough to raise enough funds to FULLY FUND all teacher requests and then, in the past 3 years, donate an additional $25,000 to the school for technology! The past board’s focus was on technology and we look forward to providing additional technology items in the future.
On a couple of occasions each year, we thank the teachers for their dedication to our children through teacher luncheons and teacher appreciation / recognition.
The IWA PTO expanded its fund raising events last year—we brought back some old ideas and tried some new ones!
Listed below are the fundraisers we conducted this past year:
- Innisbrook Wrapping Paper
- Harvest Festival
- Christmas Candy Grams
- Valentine Candy Gram
- Christmas Ornament Sale
- Classic Cookie Sale
- Gertrude Hawk Chocolate
- Bake Sale
- Santa’s Corner
- Christmas Wreath Sale
- Bling Shirts
- Arts Festival
The Harvest Festival is the main fundraiser and a school tradition!! It’s a great day of fun and games for everyone who attends. But, with all of the fun comes a lot of work and planning! Each class from pre-school to the seniors has a part in making this tradition successful and the students and parents involvement is critical.
Without your help, all we do for our school would not be possible!
