• Fundraising & Donations


    All of the money raised by the Parent Teacher Organization directly benefits our children at Parkdale, including these core initiatives:
     
    • Free Field Trips: The PTO works to raise $11,000 every year to make possible fun and enriching field trips for all Parkdale students at no charge. The PTO gives each grade level funds for transportation and program costs. These field trips have included: Buffalo Zoo, Hidden Valley Animal Adventures, Aquarium of Niagara, Zoomobile, and many others.

    • Free Family Events: These are the great events that the whole family can enjoy at no charge, including: the Fall Festival, STEAM Night, Fourth Grade Moving-Up Day, and Send-Off to Summer (a rollicking good time with bounce houses, cotton candy, and more)!
     
    • Technology Enhancements for the Classroom:  Previously, the PTO was able to purchase SMART boards with projectors for Parkdale teachers to use in their classrooms. Last year, the PTO purchased 50 Chromebooks and charging kits, which are now available to all grades.
    • Outdoor Classroom:  Last year, the PTO supported the Outdoor Classroom including sandbox and games, which all of our children can enjoy! 
     
    We are very fortunate to have such a supportive community because only by working together can we achieve our goals. As always, we thank you for your continued support as we work for all of our children.
