Why We Fundraise
It’s a fact—children learn and grow better when their families and communities are engaged in their academic, social and emotional lives. Sunnyvale PTA offers all parents and caregivers the opportunity to be engaged in developing their child's potential. Being a member of the PTA means that you are part of a powerful association and action plan that is focused on programs and initiatives that strengthen your child's education and the family-school partnership.
We raise money and strive to increase membership to help grow these programs and initiatives that transforms our four schools into gathering places that support and include the entire community.
WHERE THE MONEY GOES
Carnival, Holiday Bazaar, Dances, Field Day, Turkey Trot, SIS Fun Run, Popsicle Event and more... we host dozens of events for parents and students throughout the year!
We provide every teacher with a room mom or dad to help with classroom needs. We put on teacher appreciation events & provide lunches stock the lounge and give teacher gifts throughout the year. We ensure our teachers have the resources they need!
We fund the educational programs each year for the arts such as literacy night, provide STEM night supplies, support Red Ribbon Week, and various assemblies for each campus.
Most PTA events are open to all Sunnyvale Residents. We regularly reach out to our community to encourage all to get involved in SISD events and engage with our student and teachers.
This is what makes our district thrive!
