Understanding Silver Mesa Fundraisers

Do fundraisers at Silver Mesa confuse you?  There are two fundraisers at our school--one in the Fall and one in the Spring.  The Fall fundraiser is the PTA's No-Fuss Fundraiser which funds the programs at our school, including $7000 for Field Trips ($1000 per grade which pays for busses and admission). The Jog-a-thon is the Spring fundraiser which is sponsored by the School Community Council (SCC) and typically pays for school technology

The PTA is only allowed one fundraiser per school year and that is the No-Fuss Fundraiser which is happening right now.  Our fundraiser goal is $12,000 and as of now, we're about halfway there and we have just one week left of our fundraiser drive.  The $30 per student suggested amount is a great deal for all that PTA provides to the 600+ students in our school!

See below for an explanation of the school’s fundraisers and, as always, please contact us if you have any questions!
