The Giving Campaign

This year we will once again hold our annual fundraising drive in September. Contributing to "The Giving Campaign: One Gift, One Goal, One Community" is the BEST way to support our school, our teachers, and our students!

This year the PTA hopes to:
-Increase every child’s access to technology by purchasing more iPads & laptops for distribution to classrooms;
-Engage all children in exercise and well-being by making upgrades to our playground equipment;

-Enrich the academic experience with programs such as Chess Club, Garden Club, Service Club, Odyssey of the Mind and Battle of the Books;

-Send every grade on educational and interesting field trips*;

-Encourage our teachers’ professional development and continue to build each classroom’s reading library;

-Celebrate our great school at fun events such as Movie Night, Spirit Nights, Bingo Night, Spring Fling and Talent Show;

-Feed children in need at FHGE through our Backpack Program; and

-Include every family, teacher and administrator, regardless of financial participation, as a member of our Forest Hills Global Elementary PTA!

We need your support to make this year a success. Last year we exceeded our goal and raised over $18,000
. This year, to support our One Community, we will ask for One Gift hoping to reach One Goal of $20,000. HELP US by considering a ONE-TIME Mighty Mustang donation and directly affect the lives of ALL of our students!
This is not a long campaign – please let us know on or before September 30 (pledges may be fulfilled throughout the academic year)

·      Platinum Mighty Mustang - $1,000+

·      Gold Mighty Mustang - $500+

·      Silver Mighty Mustang - $250+
