John Rogers PTA Spring Fundraising Campaign

Please give generously! A group of John Rogers parents have offered to match dollar for dollar any amount we raise by April 30th up to $22,000! So a gift of $25 turns into $50, a gift of $100 turns into $200, and a gift of $1,000 turns into $2,000! Please forward to family and friends too!

LET’S GIVE BIG FOR OUR KIDS!


 

 

John Rogers PTA Holiday Appeal

Dear John Rogers’ Families,

First and foremost this is a THANK YOU!

Thank you for all the time you have dedicated to our school, and for making this past calendar year the most successful fund raising year John Rogers’ PTA has ever had. It’s because of you that the John Rogers Community is so welcoming, and a truly unique and wonderful place.

In this past 11 months, we have worked together toward many achievements; among the most notable – a library upgrade, funding for an additional K-1 reading tutor, ST Math for all 2nd – 5th Graders, and T-shirts for all kids to show their John Rogers pride. We are very proud of our school and we hope that you are, too!

This is the time of year that many of us are in the giving mood. If you, or your friends and family are considering making some year-end donations, please consider giving to John Rogers’ PTA.

We have established a PayPal account that provides a simple way to make an online donation either by credit card or direct transfer. We are truly a 100% volunteer organization — not a single dollar of your donation goes to the administration of John Rogers PTA. Instead, we are people working together to do what we can to make our school the best it can be, in spite of the funding challenges that face our public school system.

Please use the PayPal link below to donate online at the John Roger’s PTA.

THANK YOU!

Warm Regards,

The John Rogers PTA Board
