DID YOU KNOW?*

“Do you ever wonder where raised PTA funds go? MB Pollard PTA uses these funds to support school needs. Submitted requests by staff have begun this year and all thanks to your help we are able to fund them!

Recently, not so glamorous, but well appreciated lunch bins were funded through the special budget requests from the 6th Grade Team! The PTA is happy to lighten the 6th graders' loads with a place to drop their lunch in the morning!”







*PTA THRIFT SHOP*

Exciting News! It is easier than ever to earn $$$ for the Pollard program of your choice when volunteering at the Thrift Shop.

EVERY HOUR VOLUNTEERED = $5
Yes, the actual time that you are donating brings in more money than this for Pollard overall, so think of it like this: for every hour worked at the thrift shop, you are donating your time in exchange for a bit of money to go to the Pollard area of your choice AND a bit of money to the general PTA to help your school as a whole (this is how we fund classroom supplies & furniture, grade level programs, technology, supplemental educational material, and even reduced field trip costs).

So far this year, Band & Drama have hosted after hour Work Groups to bring in $$$ for their groups... don't you want to do the same for your area? Imagine having a FUN night of friends (+ a few adults, please) gathering to do light cleaning/organizing at the Thrift Shop while feeling good about giving back to the community as a whole AND earning $$$ for their favorite Pollard program (and did I mention having fun while you're doing it???)!!! No experience needed - a trained Supervisor leads every work group.

Don't wait for your program to host a Work Group though - come join ANY general work group and pick the program of your choice to receive your well earned $.
