The Parent Teacher Student Association (PTSA) is asking each family to make a donation to the Annual Fund to support the education of the children in our school. Your donation is needed more than ever this year to help the PTSA provide resources that enrich the education of all of our James Lick students.
Why the PTSA matters: The PTSA works closely with the Principal an
d staff at JLMS to provide resources to enrich the education of all JLMS students. Some of the items that the PTSA provides at JLMS include:
- Classroom supplies and materials
- Field trip funding for all grades
- Scholarships for UFW and Ashland overnight trips
- Arts, Music, Dance and Drama program support
- Musical Theater program funding
- Counseling Department Support
In the 2016-207 school year, the James Lick PTSA has committed to raising approximately $70,000 to provide field trips and academic support, supplement the arts education program, and host community events. This Annual Fund is the largest single PTSA fundraiser this year and needs to raise at least $20,000 of the total funds necessary for the PTSA to fulfill our mission.
To reach this goal, we need your support.
Your donation: The Annual Fund goal is to have all JLMS families make a donation. Last year, families at James Lick contributed what they were able to, which ranged from $5 to $2,000. Every donation helps us get closer to our goal and is appreciated!
For one-time donations, our suggested pledge is $360, which is equivalent to $2 per day of school. You can also choose to make a recurring monthly donation. For monthly donations, our suggested pledge is $40/month which is $1.66/day. For less than the price of a cup of coffee your donation will provide much-needed resources for our children. This is a tax-deductible contribution (Tax ID #94-3312467).
Please check with your employer to see if your company matches charitable donations. Also, please feel free to invite Grandparents, Aunts & Uncles and family friends to contribute to our PTSA Annual Fund. On behalf of our students, THANK YOU!
