Welcome to the PTA Corner!

The NO FUSS FUNDRAISER is the PTA's annual fundraising drive to financially support the teachers and students here at Pollard. This fundraiser is critical to our ability to fund teacher stipends, school wide programs, and materials that otherwise could not be a part of our children’s education.


This is a unique fundraiser in that we aren't asking students to fundraise. Instead, we're asking our Pollard community to support us through donations at levels they are comfortable giving. That's right - there is NO selling door-to-door, NO collecting money, NO delivering goods and NO major event that costs money and volunteer time from parents and faculty. Simply put, it is NO FUSS!

Please consider a donation OF ANY AMOUNT — every penny makes a difference in your child’s education at Pollard!
