Supply Closet Requests-$500.00-$2400.00
Our teachers are currently invested in Go-Fund-Me type drives to supply their classrooms with everything from Wiggly Chairs to Electronics. We would like to take that on and not have our teachers have to solicit donations. We will be able to find discounted prices for their requests through purchasing in bulk and we will be able to redistribute supplies to classrooms as needed.
These requests have ranged from $500.00 to $2400.00. We want to be a part of the solution for this and we need your help!
A Field Trip-for a class of 30-$140 to $351 per class
Transportation= $32.50 (using Tri-Met) -$243(using PPS Buses)
Tickets to Zoo= $3.00 per Student + 6 Chaperones = $ 108.00
Chaperones/Volunteers (one for every 5 Students)= 6 Chaperones
The PTA would like to pay for the transportation and any student who needs financial assistance in paying for the admission price.
Locally, Northwest Children’s Theatre and the Oregon ZOO offer tickets at $3 for Title One Schools. If we can raise the money for the transportation, we can get our kids to some world class attractions at a fraction of a regular ticket price.
