Phone-a-Thon for the Annual Appeal

Please volunteer to help out with the Phone-a-thon on Monday, February 1st, from 6 to 8:30 PM at the school. (You do not have to stay the entire time.)

The Phone-a-thon is a primary way that we raise money for our school, plus it's a great way to meet other parents and enjoy a yummy meal at the same time! If you want to volunteer, please sign up here.
We have come a long way, but we have not yet reached our goal for the Annual Appeal. We still need to raise $50,000 in order to meet our budget. 
If you have not yet donated, and you want to avoid receiving a call, act now in one of two ways:

1.  Write a check to “MS 54 PTA” and mail it to the school.
2.  Click on the “Donate to the Annual Fund” banner on the top of this email or CLICK HERE NOW.
ANY AMOUNT YOU CAN GIVE MAKES A DIFFERENCE.  Please remember that contributions to the PTA will be kept confidential, are completely voluntary, are tax deductible and meet matching gift programs for most companies.
