Bennett Bear Fundraising 21/22

 

The PTO is teaming up with our amazing Principal, Amy Holderman, again this year to go all in on one of our favorite fundraisers - BIG KAHUNA! With it's huge array of fun and practical gifts and AMAZING incentives for our Bears, we are excited for the potential! This year the PTO will raise money to support the Principal Fund and continue with 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.
