The 2017/18 school year brings the typical PTO Fundraising approach back to its traditional form. The PTO operates and is funded solely through the support of current Peirce Families. The typical PTO budget is approximately $45,000. Through the funds raised annually, the PTO uses the budget to support the following areas:
TECHNOLOGY: New iPads and carts; laptop computers; docking stations; LED projectors; external hard drives; speakers and headphones.
EDUCATIONAL ENRICHMENT: Creative Arts & Sciences programs for students of all grade levels; new books and e-books to update the library; CAPP and Understanding our Differences programs; Parent Principal Coffees.
SCHOOL SUPPORT: Teacher and principal discretionary funds; school directory; school supplies program; merchandise; teacher appreciation events.
UNITY BUILDING: Events that bring together Peirce students, parents and faculty including Back to School Picnic, Mom’s and Dad’s Nights Out, Family Movie Night, Family Dance
CAPITAL IMPROVEMENTS: Maintaining school grounds and gardening; Newton Serves.

Our fundraising goal for the 2017/18 school year is $55,000 which will be raised through the Annual Appeal. This will enable the PTO to sufficiently operate and fund the areas outlined above for two years – and do so at the same level of excellence as in past years while also allowing us to save money for potential future projects around technology and capital improvements.
