What is the MTE Turtle Power Drive?
The Turtle Power Drive Fundraising Campaign allows the PTO to streamline fundraising efforts to just one major gift campaign per year. Mohawk Trails Elementary keeps 100% of funds raised! This one-time gift ensures that you don’t have to selling wrapping paper, candles, or cookie dough. We are making it easy!
What does my donation support?
Your donation will support all of the amazing Mohawk Trails activities and events that happen year after year to make MTE a great place to be. These things can’t happen without this fundraising campaign. Your gift directly funds the following:
Student Activities: Family Fun Nights, Classroom Parties, Field Day, Muffins and Me Events, Turtle Trot, Cookies and Canvas, and more.
Student Enrichment: MTE Makerspace, all student clubs, 100 Book Club, classroom materials, educational subscriptions (like PebbleGo), teacher conferences, and more.
Teacher Appreciation: Over 20 Teacher and Staff Appreciation events per year.
Special Projects for our School and Students: In the past, the PTO built the running track, installed a rock wall in the gym, created the Makerspace, and provided iPads for all teachers. Learn more about the exciting plans for this year at Back to School Night.
And lots, lots more!
How much am I asked to give?
Our goal is to raise at least $15,000 and to have 100% participation from Mohawk Trails families. To meet our goal, we are asking for a tax-deductible donation of $50 or more per student or $100 or more per family. Each family’s participation is vital to our success! After the Turtle Power Drive ends, all donating families will get a donation acknowledgment letter for their records.
How do I make a donation?
Send a check, payable to Mohawk Trails PTO via Backpack Mail or drop off at the MTE office.
Pay by Credit Card BELOW! Be sure to include your oldest student's name and grade level.
Please consider sending the payment link to family members and friends who graciously support your children’s fundraisers! And, don’t forget to use the matching gift program at your employer.
How will we celebrate once we achieve our goal?
Back by popular demand! When we succeed, our MTE Turtles will celebrate with a Staff vs. Student Soccer Game on September 22nd. All students will have a chance to participate, either as a player, cheerleader, or spectator. We will also celebrate at the 25%, 50%, and 75% milestones with a fun POWER UP Spirit Day!
