“Making Tracks for West Clay”
The 2017 West Clay PTO Fall Donation Drive
WATCH OUR VIDEO!
“Making Tracks for West Clay” is the PTO’s annual gift campaign. The purpose of the campaign is to raise funds to support West Clay Elementary School’s mission, which is for all students to experience excellence, explore opportunities, and realize their potential.
One of the primary objectives of the West Clay PTO is to provide our school with funds and resources that will enrich and maximize the education of every child. To meet this important objective, the PTO organizes fundraisers throughout the year. Prior to 2012, these fundraisers included PTO membership dues, a gift wrap sale, and an Entertainment Book sale. During the 2011-12 school year, the PTO surveyed parents about their fundraising preferences. Parents voted for a donation campaign to replace membership dues and the gift wrap and Entertainment Book sales. Since the Fall of 2012, every parent has been automatically enrolled in the PTO with the enrollment of their student, and no one has been asked to sell anything!
