Bennett Bear Fundraising 23/24



This year the PTO will raise money to support the PTO Programs, Classroom Support, Teacher Appreciation, and Teacher Grants.  100% of your donation benefits the students and staff of Bennett Elementary, and is fully tax deductible. 


Your support is critical. Parents are the “P” in PTO. The school relies on money from the PTO to cover the gap between what our state and district provide and the kind of educational and community programs we know will build a truly well-rounded child.  With your support, you are ensuring that all children at Bennett Elementary continue to benefit from the great programs and activities we provide each year.
