Our 2016 PTA fundraising raffle was a HUGE success!
Last Thursday at the end-of-the-year picnic, school board member and Oakton parent, Omar Brown, picked our two winners. A 2nd place prize of a $50 Target gift card was chosen first, and then the big moment…for the brand new Apple iPad! Both prize winners were very excited! We would like to recognize Sandra Brown, Oakton grandparent and Weichert Realtors broker, for donating the iPad & gift card. We are grateful for such generosity!
Thank you to all the families who worked so hard to sell raffle tickets – we exceeded our goal and raised $6,500! A big shout out to our #1 ticket sellers – the Bilski sisters – who sold just shy of 300 tickets. Amazing! Several families sold 100+ tickets as well! And congratulations to the 1st Grade – who had the most participants. We hope you enjoyed your pizza party!
We are so happy that the Oakton PTA will start off next year strong and ready to continue providing fun and enriching activities for our whole community – such as picnics, program scholarships, club support (chess, chorus, running club) field trips, author visits, teacher appreciation week, edible garden and assistance with service projects such as ESCCA and the eye glass fund. We have a community to be proud of! Congratulations, and warmest appreciation for everyone’s hard work and support! Go Team Oakton!
