Introducing "Ordway Gives Big!"
The Ordway PTO is kicking off our annual fundraiser called "Ordway Gives Big!" Ordway PTO funds and offsets costs for the many enrichment activities that are inherent to our children's elementary education experience. This includes, but is not limited to, free after-school clubs, field trip expenses, assemblies, teacher/classroom grants, and general supplies. What we raise this year goes right back into the school and students immediately.
Bridging the gap
Bainbridge Island School District is an amazing asset within our community, but their funding only goes so far. We work hard to close that gap and provide the extras that help further our students' education. Some examples of what PTO funds includes:
- Classroom Enrichment: $11,800.00
- Software subscriptions: $6,000.00
- Teacher Grants: $17,000.00
- Family Fun Night (including Carnival): $6,900.00
- Free After-School Programs: $8,000.00
- School Enrichment/General Supplies: $2,250.00
Ordway Gives Big!
With your help, our goal this year is to raise $50,000. Anything raised above and beyond this goal will roll into our capital campaign to fund the new playground blacktop project. Our fundraising goal averages out to $250 per family. Whatever you can give that is meaningful to you and your family makes a difference! Our goal is 100% participation.
Ordway Gives Back!
As a way of saying thank you and giving back to our Commuity, each child will participate in a community service activity with their class. Along with their teacher, each class will decide what their service activity will be, with some of the opportunities including:
"My Favorite Cereal" Drive for Helpline House
Writing Thank You Letters to Service Men and Women
Doing an Art Project or Playing Games with Seniors at Madison House
- Winter coat/mitten/hat drive
- Trash clean up at Sakai Park, along Madison Avenue, and around the school grounds
- Toiletry drive
- Clean up the Ordway vegetable garden
- Sock drive
- Diaper Drive
Help us fully fund the PTO for the 2019-2020 school year during our only fundraiser. Every donation makes a difference.
