ORCA-thon

What is the PTA ORCA-thon Fundraiser?

The ORCA-thon is a one-time fundraiser at the beginning of the school year to provide money for supplies and activities.

Why do we need the PTA ORCA-thon Fundraiser?

The PTA ORCA-thon provides much needed funding support to our school community. The PTA works in conjunction with the STARS Foundation to provide financial support for our children's learning experience at Edmonds Elementary. STARS provides numerous and generous grants "Supporting the Teaching of Arts, Reading and Science" with funds raised through a separate, annual auction held in the Spring.

How do I participate?

Information will come home in your child's folder at the beginning of the year and will be available at various back-to-school events as well. You can also download the the flyer here and return it to the PTA box in the main office. You will be able to pay via PayPal as well as personal check and credit card. To pay via PayPal, click here.

Your one-time, tax free donation helps fund:

School Supplies and Copies

In the time of dwindling school funding, the PTA provides support for the building to purchase needed school supplies as well as copies for students.

Safety Patrol
Student volunteers ensure the children's safety getting to and from school. We ensure the volunteers receive the recognition they deserve.

Field Trips & Outdoor School
The PTA helps fund the rental of buses for various class field trips throughout the year.

Classroom Enhancement
Much of our fundraising money goes to support this program which allows the teachers a small discretionary fund to purchase classroom items that are not provided by the district.

Yearbook
As a record of memories for the year, the year book is treasured by students, staff and parents.

Emergency Preparedness
Knowing our children are safe if there were to be a major disaster during the school day gives us all peace of mind. The PTA works to ensure the school has the supplies and support they need to maintain the emergency shed.

Spirit Wear
Edmonds Elementary tee shirts, sweatshirts, fleece, etc are offered two to three times a year for purchase.

Scholarships
For some of the families in our school community, it is a struggle to participate in school activities. This fund helps ensure everyone can enjoy the PTA events and programs.
