Classroom Support Funds 2019-2020
$65.00 – $105.00
Classroom Support Funds cover the costs of classroom activities for the entire academic year (with the exception of field trips). The monies are collected and held in an account by the PTO as a service to our teachers, so they can focus on teaching and not accounting. Classroom Support Funds are not used for PTO sponsored activities or programs and the PTO has no discretion over the funds. You can help fund PTO programs through Team Thunderbird.
Classroom Support Funds give teachers the funds they need to support your child’s academic experience in their classroom. Your child’s teacher, in conjunction with the other grade level teachers, determines the budget and how funds are used for the year. Generally, Classroom Support Funds support activities and experiences such as:
- Various in-class labs & projects
- Materials for “specials” (Music, Art, PE, Computers, STEM)
- Materials for Wonderland outdoor classroom and garden
- SkyWriters (student publishing lab)
- Holidays, celebrations, and awards
- Room Parent funds (teacher appreciation)
Your classroom teacher can provide you with a detailed description of how CSF is allocated for your student’s specific grade level.
If your student attends resource, honors classes, or is in a self-contained classroom we ask that you select those options for additional fees that are used directly by those classes.
