Sawnee PTA does an annual fundraiser that uses money collected to donate to school specific projects and needs.

In previous years, we have used the funds generated from fundraisers to renovate the media center, add a shade cover to one of the playgrounds, issue teacher grants to be applied toward classroom needs along with other projects throughout the year. Last year we installed a new playground which students were able to enjoy shortly after our fundraising event. The teachers were able to keep 10% of their classrooms proceeds to apply towards classroom needs.

This year we are raising money for technology advancements and to facilitate the startup of an empowering program called “The Leader in Me”. The availability of these advancements and new programs are necessary to remain competitive in a constantly evolving system. The teachers will retain 10% of what their classrooms raise to assist in satisfying needs through the school year.

The Sawnee PTA depends on the help of our school family and community.  Please help us reach our goal of $40,000. Last year we far exceeded the goal, let’s do it again, we are counting on you!

Thank you parents, students, teachers and community for all you do to support Sawnee Elementary!
