These two important fundraisers make ~$20,000 annually and provide support for ~80% of our budget.
This year, we will be holding a family fun run/walk on September 28, 2019. 100% of the money raised from this important fundraiser will go directly to the PTO and to puchase new technology for our Monroe students. Students will collect pledges ahead of time to support their run/walk on the school grounds. Don't forget to check with your company to see if you are eligible for corporate matching.
Stay tuned for more information about the 2019-2020 spring fundraiser.
