Each family's contribution of $100 per child (suggested amount) allows the PTO to partially fund our programs throughout the year.




The annual operating budget of $80,000+ is funded from: 

  • Direct Dues

  • Auction Income

  • Business Sponsorship / Advertising

  • Fundraisers

Direct Dues allow for ease of funding without having to ask parents to write multiple checks throughout the year. Consider paying Online using the Add to Cart button above, or with the Donation Form below.
