Grant PTA understands fees add to the financial weight of a new school year. Therefore, membership scholarships are available on a case-by-case basis.

Welcome to Grant Elementary PTA fundraising!
Every dollar raised goes back into Grant to bring additional educational opportunities, resources, and fun to your child’s school experience!
It’s Spring, and our PTA is kicking into high gear to make the remainder of this school year amazing for our kids. That means lots of events paid for by our PTA, including assemblies, Teacher Appreciation Week, CAR-nival, 5th Grade graduation and more.
It also means fundraisers to pay for all the things that our PTA does.
WHAT ARE WE RAISING MONEY FOR? In addition to the fun events, our PTA has made a commitment to provide funds for:
$10 per student (totaling $3,400) to attend a 2nd field trip this school year
Gift cards for families in crisis
Field trip lunches/snacks for students who cannot afford to bring their own
Clothes for students who have accidents at school
Welcome kit with a t-shirt for every new student, K and preschoolers
