Why does the PTSA do Fundraisers?

Through fundraising the PTA is able to purchase enrichment programs such as the Accelerated Reader Program.  PTSA also provides funding for PYP and MYP teachers to attend IB training, thus furthering their education and making them the BEST teachers in Miami-Dade County!  In addition, each year we purchase $10,000 to $12,000 worth of materials, supplies and equipment for the school.  These are just a few examples of what the PTA does with the money we raise through fundraising.
