What makes Anchors Away Awesome?

There is no selling anything and no going door to door! Supporting Vaughan PTA has never been easier! Simply write a check or make a donation easily online with a credit card!

All amounts are appreciated and no donation is too small. 100% of the funds raised will be used throughout the year to support our staff and students.

Some of the way PTA is able to support our students, staff and school community because of your generosity:

  • Staff Appreciation events
  • Student assemblies
  • Author visits
  • Family Fun nights
  • 6th grade celebration
  • School library & classroom donations
  • Parent Education events
  • And so much more!

Don't forget that many companies offer corporate matching for employee donations. You can check here to see if your employer offers corporate matching:

Be a WATCH D.O.G.S Volunteer!

Fathers and father figures can sign up to volunteer for the program through Vaughan's online calendar. The program is overseen by a "Top Dog", our school counselor, Ms. Dreher, who partners with the school’s administration to coordinate scheduling and identifying opportunities for Watch D.O.G.S. to provide assistance at the school. PTA is providing an online calendar for sign up.

Signups coming soon! Click here for more details.
