PTO raises funds to support teachers and students by holding our annual Soar Like a Hawk Gift Campaign and by selling Spirit Wear, holding Retail Family Nights and other events such as Carnvial and Book Fair. We also partner with corporations who give us money for patronizing their stores through our Corporate Partners program. 

You can help by supporting these events throughout the year and at the beginning of the year, donate to the Soar Like a Hawk Campaign. Press the 'DONATE' button at right. Read more about Soar Like a Hawk here


Why do we fundraise?


The Prairie Trace PTO raises funds throughout the year to enhance curriculum and grade level programs, support staff's professional development, and provide support to teachers that directly benefits students. Last year, we raised more than $20,000 in the Soar Like a Hawk Campaign.  ALL OF THE FUNDS WE RAISE GO DIRECTLY TO THE SCHOOL!
