PTO Funding

The Spring Ave PTO consists of over 50 committees who host events and provide ways to enrich your child's lives both inside and outside of school! In 2017-2018 alone, look at all we were able to accomplish with the help of our amazing volunteers and supportive parents:

  • Raised nearly $30,000 at this year's adult social and auction and another $10,000 through retail fundraisers, Fun Fair, After 3 Classes and D105 Dash

  • Donated over $25,000 directly back to our teachers and school: $7,500 teacher classroom gift at the beginning of the school year; $7,000 full school gift - sensory equipment and new playground tree; $11,000 in classroom and gym grants -- funding many items from basketball backboards to science and math equipment

  • Provided graduating LT senior and former Spring student with a $2,000 college scholarship

  • Funded the $5,000 summer reading program so every Spring Ave student has a new book this summer

  • Sponsored more than two dozen events and programming for our families, including Author's visits, Math & Science Night, Variety Show, Field Days and Back to School Party
