We are running a catalogue fundraiser called Believe Kids! This should have come home in your child’s backpack the week of September 16-20, 2019. Oakton PTA receives 40-50% of every order placed. Please ask your friends, family, and neighbors to have a look through the catalogue! Oakton PTA raised $2,000 through this fundraiser in 2018.
Bulk School Supplies
Oakton PTA runs a Bulk School Supplies Program. There are parts to this program:
- We ask every family for a contribution of $50 or $30 per child.
- We provide funds to Oakton teachers for ordering school supplies.
If you have not already, you can make a bulk school supplies payment at http://bit.ly/oaktonstore or leave an envelope with cash or a check at the office.
Near the end of each year, the PTA makes a direct appeal to the community to directly donate cold hard cash to support the work of the PTA. If you just can’t wait, though – we’ll be happy to accept your donation any time of year! The easiest way to contribute is via PayPal or by leaving your gift in the PTA mailbox in the front office.
PS. Did you know you can make easy monthly contributions when you give online? Just select “Make this a monthly donation” when you log in to PayPal! Just $10 each month comes out to $120 for the year!
