Fundraising

The Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) is a group of volunteer parents working with the Hosmer administration and teachers to provide a variety of programs designed to enhance students’ elementary school experience.

The success of this mission depends on every member of our community. The many initiatives provided could not be possible without the time and donations contributed by many families. Please consider making a donation: any amount is appreciated; however, if every family donated $50 we would not have to rely on additional fundraising throughout the year. Be sure to check with your employer to see if they will match your donation.

The Hosmer PTO is a non-profit organization and all contributions are tax-deductible.

All the funds raised go back into the school, to benefit students, support teachers, and foster a spirit of community!

The budget covers curriculum enrichment programs, support for teachers and staff through the purchase of technology, books and classroom supplies; and special program seed grants. Some of the activities planned for the 2014-15 school year are:

Activity Description Budget
Teacher Reimbursement Each teacher receives reimbursements for classroom supplies $5,000
Curriculum Enrichment Each class receives funds for activities supporting curriculum @ $10/child $7,000
