What is the Pumas Pledge?
DIAS PTO supports many of the school’s field trips, community-building events and learning experiences. Unlike some fundraisers where a large portion (typically more than half) of your money goes to an outside company, 100% of your pledge goes to the school!
Where does my money go, and what does my child get from the PTO?
2016-2017 Projected Spending Per Student
Community Building Events $13
Learning Experiences/Field Trips $62
Classroom/Teacher Support $20
Per Student Average $95
How do we participate?
Please make a pledge by filling out the attached form and including a check, made out to DIAS PTO, or cash. You can also go online to website to make a donation and pay with a credit card.
When is the deadline?
Friday, September 16
What is our goal?
100% participation! If each DIAS family raises $50 for our Pumas Pledge, we will reach more than half of our fundraising needs for the entire school year.
Thank you for your support!
We encourage all families to take part in volunteering and fundraising efforts. Every donation, large or small, adds up to make a big difference. If you have any questions, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for your support!
