Through dues, fundraising, grants, and sponsorships the PTO hopes to raise $100,000 this year for enrichment programs. We are asking every family to pitch in to improving 282 by pledging PTO dues of at least $20 per month.
This year the PTO will be funding weekly music instruction for every class Pre-K to 8 as well as providing the school with $8000 earmarked for every teacher to use for classroom supplies. The bulk of the money comes from family donations and the hard work of the volunteers who organize events and solicit donations and sponsorships.
We prefer electronic donations as there is not always someone in the PTO office to accept your donation. For those who would rather send in checks please make them out to the 282 PTO. To become a dues-paying PTO member it’s easy to sign up on our website: Go to the donate page and make sure to click on “I would like this donation to automatically repeat each month.”
On occasion, individual teacher’s will request funds for class projects or supplies. For current funding requests please follow this link.Donor’s Choice
