A Very Important Letter from Your OES PTA President

friendsofoakton-logo-02

Please Give to the Most Important 

and Only Donation Drive for 2016-17

 * * *               

 Our Goal is to Raise $30,000 –

as of this December we have $18,000

 more to raise!

Dear Oakton Families,

My heartfelt thanks to those of you who have donated your time, money, and passion to help our school.  This is my 7th year as an OES parent, and every year I am delighted to see new faces and meet new parents.  The constant variable in the transiency of elementary school is our own incredible OES community.  Our stability, creativity, cooperation and, most importantly, our unified goal to provide the best we can for our children remain our anchor as we move from one year to another. But we can’t do it without your support.

 Friends of Oakton is the one and only donation drive that funds the majority of the PTA activities supporting our school.  The Oakton PTA needs your help – as of now only 15% of OES families have donated.  Keep in mind that every single dollar goes a long way in boosting our school to greater achievement.

 The reality is…without sufficient funds, initiatives such as these will have to be cut:

 Technology improvements for classrooms

  • Cultural Arts assemblies for the entire school – remember the Magician from last year?

  • Classroom Supplies and Teacher Support

  • Fun & FREE events such as Movie Night, Game Night, and our International Festival 

Please CLICK HERE to give your tax-deductible donation.  You can access the complete PTA budget breakdown on our OES PTA website by clicking HERE.  For any questions about the budget or the PTA, please feel free to contact me at president@oaktonpta.net.

Thank you for being a member of our community!   Happy Holidays from all of us on the PTA board!

 Warmly,

 Susan McWeeney – PTA President
