What exactly are we funding here?

This 5K does all the heavy lifting– bulking up the library, supplementing our after-school clubs, providing transportation for enriching field trips, and most importantly, filling in those gaps where the regular school budget just ain’t cutting it.

Here are just SOME tangible examples purchased with PTC money last school year:

  • Whiteboard tables for 8th grade math classrooms

  • After-school club support

  • Lunch recess equipment (basketballs, soccer balls, etc.)

  • All-school socials & 8th Grade Send-off

  • Bus transportation for OSU Field Trip for 8th graders & 6th/7th grade OMSI experiences

  • Art literacy supplies 

  • Additional OBOB books & literacy support

  • PACK store supplies

  • Staff appreciation events
