Thanks to your generosity, the Austin Parkway PTA funds activities during the school year that directly enhance our children’s school experience and supports our amazing teachers and staff.
Plans for this year are still underway, both for which activities can still go ahead and the fundraisers we will be running. Please know that the PTA will continue to support our students, families and teachers in these unusual circumstances.
In a normal year, the money we raise pays for:
- teacher/staff grants
- conferences for teachers
- Winter parties
- Valentine’s Day parties
- field trips and classroom experiences (determined by the teachers) at every grade level
- visiting authors
- teacher appreciation
- administrative expenses, and more!
Our biggest fundraiser is the APEX fundraiser and will be held February 2021. It will be so much fun! We rely on PTA memberships and other fundraisers during the year to raise additional funds and give us opportunities to come together as an APE community.
Thank you for supporting our fundraising efforts and making a difference!
