We are trying to raise money for Sligo Creek Elementary School's PTA. It helps buy things my teachers need in class.
The funds raised go toward core PTA programs, such as academic support for our teachers (through reimbursement for their supplies, mini-grants for their instruction and other projects); additional resources for our school (LCD projectors, document cameras, and an outdoor classroom); special educational events at school (World Culture Day, Literacy Night, cultural arts assemblies); and community events (like class socials and our back to school and end of school parties). Last year the Stride raised approximately $24,000, which was used to purchase LCD projectors and ELMO cameras, subscriptions to English and French magazines, and fund the initial steps to plan an outdoor classroom space in the courtyard between SCES and SSIMS. We hope this year is even more successful!
