What do you do with the money raised through fundraising?

The money we raise each year goes towards many events and enrichment opportunities. We pay $10,000 each year to support our Cultural Arts program, last year we purchased snowshoes for students to use during recess and gym, we buy lunch for students during 5th grade orienteering and Field Days, we offer a free science night with a variety of presenters, we purchase prizes and books for reading, math and PARP events. The money also allows us to plan fun events such as the Fun Fair and Family Dance. Our main focus is raising money for the new playground.

What is Cultural Arts?

Cultural Arts is a PTO committee that works to set up arts and science events for each grade. The committee arranges for assemblies, author visits, science exhibits and museum visits for the students at Geyser Road. The committee works with committees from the other schools in the district to create a year long list of activities.

PARP is our Parents As Reading Partners program that encourages students and parents to read together and keep track of their reading each day. Each student who reaches the goal will receive a prize and every student will receive a book.
