EL RODEO’S 2017-2018 ANNUAL FUND CAMPAIGN
Dear El Rodeo Parents,
Please join us in welcoming the 2017-2018 school year by making an important investment in your child’s education. El Rodeo PTA plays a crucial role in your child’s educational experience by providing the financial means necessary to support a variety of academic enrichment programs that would not otherwise be available at our school. PTA’s annual budget is based on the cost of continuing El Rodeo’s existing programs, the anticipated costs of replacing broken or obsolete equipment, and providing the financial flexibility to incorporate new activities or programs as they may arise during the upcoming year.
WE SIMPLY CANNOT PROVIDE THE AMAZING ACADEMIC ENRICHMENT, STAFF SUPPORT, SUPPLIES, AND EQUIPMENT THAT HELP MAKE EL RODEO THE OUTSTANDING SCHOOL IT IS…. WITHOUT YOUR HELP!
We are asking all families to make a tax-deductible donation to El Rodeo PTA!
In addition to the academic and enrichment benefits your contribution will make to El Rodeo students, every class with 100% participation in the drive will be able to celebrate with a special treat sponsored by PTA.

With our current State budget crisis, we need your help now more than ever. Many employers have Gift Matching programs, so please take the time to inquire at your office and note the program on your donation form.
