Other Ways to Support Brandon
SUPPORTING BRANDON IN OTHER WAYS
Each year, in addition to official school fundraisers, there might be other ways that you are asked to help support Morris Brandon. This year we also wanted to include a list of items/activities where you will be asked to participate/donate but they are not fundraisers for the PTA.
Every year the room parent will ask families to contribute around $20/student to be used towards teacher gifts throughout the year (birthday, teacher appreciation, end of year etc.). Some of the money also goes towards gifts for the Specials teachers (Art, Music, French, PE) to show appreciation for their work with our children. These contributions are completely voluntary but encouraged.
FIELD TRIP FEES
You will soon receive information on payment for field trips. Students will take several field trips throughout the year to enhance their learning experience. Total cost varies by grade – but can range from $75-$100.
JUMP ROPE FOR HEART – February 22-24
Coach Wyman leads this fundraiser for the American Heart Association. Donations of $10-$20/student are encouraged to reach a goal of $15,000.
Twice a year you will have the opportunity to purchase professional pictures of your student. A portion of that payment goes back to Morris Brandon.
Throughout the year there will be spirit days both on and off campus. Typically the ones on campus help raise money for the 5th grade and usually request a donation of $1/child at a time (e,g, Wear your favorite team jersey for a $1). The off-campus events help support our business partners and a portion of those sales dollars come back to the PTA (these occur ONLY on designated dates which will be announced throughout the school year).
