Our PTA, thanks to the generosity of our Camarena community, has steadily raised money for the benefit of our school community. Here are some of the items that have been funded by our Camarena PTA this year.
Field Trips: Transportation costs have been covered for the 4th grade field trip to the Star of India. With the success of our PTA fundraising, we will insure that transportation costs for one field trip per grade level are included in coming years.
Events: Movie Nights, Spring Dance, Family Game Night and Literacy Night were all free events.
Teacher Appreciation: Every teacher has been offered a mini grant of $175 to defray the cost of out-of-pocket classroom supplies. Welcome Back Breakfast to staff and Staff Appreciation Luncheon (coming in May) have been provided.
Scholastic Book Fair: On account of the purchases our families and staff have made at the Scholastic Book Fairs this year, our school has been the recipient of $5,000 of books and supplies for clasrooms and our library.
Stay tuned to this space in the coming weeks as we will announce even more expenditures that will benefit all of our Camarena students because of our successful fundraising. Thank you Camarena community for your generosity and trust.
