Rosa Parks Elementary PTSA


   Fun Run $50,000

  Supporting Your Children’s Education 


It’s almost time for our exciting FUN RUN!!!!  We would like to encourage you to participate in the FUN RUN fundraiser which will be our ONLY fundraiser this year if we reach our goal. We organize this event ourselves with the fabulous support of our school staff and amazing parent volunteers to maximize our fundraising dollars. Funds raised will help support all PTSA programs including but not limited to Art Smart, Math Adventure, School Safety, Accelerated Reader, Nature Vision.  It will also help cover PTSA events, replenish our play structure budget and so much more that benefits all students at Rosa Parks. 
Our Goal This year our goal is to raise $60,000 through fundraising efforts to support our programs.  We are suggesting a $120 contribution per student, but whatever you can contribute from $10 to $1,000 will be greatly appreciated. 
What is the Fun Run? For two weeks starting on September 24th, students will ask family and friends to support them, their PTSA and their school with donations. We’ll end this fundraising campaign with a Fun Run during school on Oct 5th. More details on the Fun Run and how to donate will be sent home with your child closer to the Fun Run date.
