Dear Parents,

Each year the PTA raises money to cover the school expenditures and programs not paid for by the Department of Education. Our major fundraiser each year is the Family Giving Fund (FGF). This year our goal is $280,000. If everyone pitches in, we can get it done together. Thank you in advance for your participation.
Sincerely,
Patricia Correge
FGF Committee Chair
