Through the support of the Skyline Community our auction raises an average of $80,000. For a small school of only 300 students that is quite impressive, GO EAGLES!
So we raise all this money, what do we do with it? I’ll give you a quick synopsis, but you can read more about it on our Foundation Page that gives you ALL the facts!
The majority of the money raised from our School Auction goes to our Foundation to fill gaps in staffing needs. Money that is earned for the Foundation is the ONLY way we can pay for additional teachers to lower class sizes or add on instruction (ie: Spanish for K-3 this year). It is to pay for licensed teachers, that’s it! Some of the money stays with the PTA and we use as needed to support other events within the school including: classroom funds, community events, library resources, among many others. You can find more information about how funds are allocated and where your money goes in this letter that went out at the beginning of the year.
Regardless of how much money we earn through the Foundation, remember this…to reach our goal, we will always need to factor in an additional 33%. Why?
Well, we can keep the first $10,000 free and clear but anything above that gets 1/3 donated to All Hands Raised. All Hands Raised is in place to support those schools that do NOT have a Foundation and work to maintain equity among schools within PPS. Read more about their efforts on the above link. So if our goal is to raise $100,000 as a school, we need to consider adding in another $30,000 to compensate.
