Our parents, teachers and staff at Fireside Elementary work hard to support each child in their education and make school a fun, nurturing and safe environment. The Fireside PTO does its part by financially underwriting our children's elementary education. For 2020-2021, the PTO budgets nearly $45,000 of expenses, including allocations to each classroom teacher, para-educator salaries, student events and more. To cover these expenses each year, the PTO coordinates a fall fundraiser, grocery card + other affiliate programs, business sponsorships, and additional no-cost-to-families programs.
The biggest annual fundraising push is in the fall of each year. The annual Jog-a-thon has been replaced with Pride-a-thon for 2020-2021. In this direct ask campaign, we ask each family to make a donation to support our school. Our next largest fundraisers are tied to the King Soopers and Safeway grocery card rewards program, which are an easy way to raise money, at no cost to you. Collectively, with every family supporting these programs and others, we will make a valuable investment in our children's education.
