PTC Corner

As the school year winds down, we have one more exciting opportunity for students. Read more below.


Watch your inboxes for details on a t-shirt design contest for students. One design will be selected as the image for September’s FUNd Run t-shirt that all students receive. Submissions will be accepted through the end of June.


We want to hear your input and ideas for next year’s programs and activities to support students, staff, and shark families. Please complete this quick survey.


The PTC is actively looking for volunteers for the following roles. Come help us make next year a success while having fun.

(1) FUNd Run Chair: Help plan our first fundraiser of the year, scheduled for Friday, September 23. This event raises money to pay for Sierra’s Spanish program.

(2) co-Treasurer: We are looking for someone with a financial background to join the PTC Board.

(3) Fall Carnival co-Chair: Help plan this fun family event scheduled for Friday, October 28.


The PTC Board would like to thank the entire Sierra community for your enthusiasm, generosity, ideas, and support. The year has been filled with exciting events (the FUNd Run, Fall Carnival, Auction, Movie Nights, and Coffees with the Principal), and through fundraising supported by our families, the PTC has funded the Spanish program, teacher accounts, an assembly, outdoor student tables, the Miss Sharon memorial bench, IB banners, spoiled Sierra’s well-deserving teachers and staff, and so much more. We could not have had such a successful year without you!

We would also like to extend our sincerest thanks to each committee chair who helped make this year a success.

We are looking forward to the next school year. If you are interested in learning about how you can get involved or have ideas you would like to share with the PTC, please contact us. We can’t wait to hear from you! You can also see our proposed 2022-23 budget in the graphic below.

We hope everyone has a wonderful summer! See you in August!
