WHY DOES THE PTA NEED YOUR PANTHER PRIDE AND FUNDRAISING DOLLARS?

DO YOU HAVE QUESTIONS ABOUT WHERE YOUR MONEY GOES??????

“Why does the PTA need our donations? Doesn’t Fairfax County have enough money? What does the PTA pay for anyway??”

ANSWER:

These are good questions, and the PTA wants to make sure they are answered.

The fact is, school budgets are dwindling. Your PTA works closely with the principal to determine how we can best supplement the school’s budget with teaching tools, tech and other resources that are not covered by your tax dollars. That’s why we ask you to donate generously – so that our school has the necessary tools and resources to provide your children with the very best elementary school experience possible. 

In addition, your PTA works hard to create low-cost community events to enrich your children’s elementary school experience outside of the regular school day. They are here for 7 years – we want those years to be the best they can be! It’s all about the kids!

If you ever want to see EXACTLY how your donations are used by your PTA, please review the PTA budget on the PTA website. All of this information is ALWAYS at your fingertips on the OES PTA website – year-round.  CLICK HERE!
