Donate online!



Sawnee PTA uses money collected to donate to school specific projects and 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!
