Important Message from the Eleanor Roosevelt High School PTA
Welcome to the 2018-19 school year. With your contributions last year, we were able to enrich all of our children’s educational experience for which we are very grateful. To make this happen again, we are asking for 100% participation in this year’s Annual Fund.
At our meeting on June 12, 2018, the general membership of the Eleanor Roosevelt High School Parent Teacher Association approved a $200,000 operating budget for the 2018-19 academic year. The budget supports after-school programs ($43,000), athletics ($8,000), the college office ($8,000) school supplies ($20,000), and a wide range of other school expenses.
Through the PTA, parents support students by providing financial support for elective courses, the College Office, the internship coordinator, and so much more. Parents support teachers by paying for professional development opportunities and recognition events, and parents support the administration by assuming the cost of back office items like staff laptops, and the school website and voicemail system.
The unfortunate reality is this: if we do not contribute to the ERHS budget, our children will not have the programs and opportunities for which ERHS has become well-known for.
The suggested donation amount is $1,000 per student. We encourage every family to contribute what they can. The PTA offers convenient monthly payment plans for families who would like to donate in installments. Our goal is 100% participation in our annual appeal. No contribution is too big or too small. Every gift is meaningful because it goes directly or indirectly to support the most important thing we have; our children. We need to raise $200,000. Please give as generously as you can.
