PTSA Fundraiser: Give to the Max

Hello Folwell Families!

Thanks to all of you who have contributed to our PTSA Fall Fundraiser! We are at $625 of our $6000 goal.  Our fundraiser is 1 week away from being done, and we need your help!

PTSA funds are incredibly important for classroom support.  Please see below for notes from our teachers on how they use PTSA money for their classroom activities:
We used PTSA funds to purchase additional equipment for our Morning Movers program.   Around 100 kids participate in a daily exercise program, before school, during second and third quarter. (WJM)

PTSA funds allowed our fifth graders to experience 1-1 learning with the iPads that the PTSA helped purchase.  Our fifth graders have used these tools to research, create, and collaborate in ways that we never could before.

PTSA funds have helped fund owl pellets in 3rd grade in order for students to dissect with a partner, rather than a group of 6.  This science experiment helps bring our CIA novel, Poppy, to life and science habitats lessons too!!!!

PTSA funds has helped fund field trips and Children’s Theatre plays in the past.  The PTSA funds our 3rd grade downtown field trip to the Government Center to meet the mayor, eat at Victoria’s and check out a book at the public library.  This experience correlates with our social studies curriculum in order to help students understand government, our community, and Rochester history.  

PTSA has provided funds for numerous classroom materials and activities, including all the materials (binder, sheet protectors, pictures) for a personalized Memory Book that each Kindergarten student can take home at the end of the year! It’s such a wonderful keepsake!

As a reminder, donations are tax-deductible, and donations may be given at any time, so please don't forget!
