The PTA helps our school purchase technology, programs and materials that are not paid for by the school district budget.
How it's done...
Teachers, families and local businesses work together to accomplish these goals by:
Eating out on Dining Fundraising Nights (Restaurant nights)
Buying Spirit Wear
Donating online to the SMART Fund
Saving and bringing in Box Tops for Education
Shopping at certain local and national retailers
Selling Gift Wrap through Charleston during our Fall Fundraising event
Thanks for all you do to make our school great!
What is the HIGHLANDS SMART FUND?
The Highlands SMART Fund supports all PTA-sponsored enrichment programs at Highlands Elementary during the school year. Donations to the Highlands SMART Fund are used entirely to fund enrichment programs and services for our students at Highlands Elementary.
SMART represents the primary focus areas of Highlands PTA’s fundraising efforts:
These areas are our primary focus, but we also support other activities to support the whole child. The SMART Fund is managed by the Highlands Elementary School PTA.
For details on how SMART fund dollars are used for our school, visit the SMART fund page.
Lots of ways to donate!
There are several events planned throughout the school year to raise money for our school. However, there are many ongoing fundraising programs available.
Below are some additional ways you can donate to the SMART fund through purchases you may already be making at popular stores. Many of these programs simply donate a portion of money from your purchases directly to the SMART fund. Check them out!
