Fundraising

  Big Give Envelope Drive - Puesta del Sol PTA’s “Big Give Envelope Drive” to support the PTA Annual Fund begins this fall! The goal is to raise $175,000 for the PTA Annual Fund during the Big Give Envelope Drive! This direct donation campaign relieves pressure on Walkathon fundraising, volunteer efforts, and will hopefully eliminate the need to do a biennial auction.  If we don’t reach our goal then we may see our programs go away because of lack of funding.  Do you love International Festival?  We LOVE our Amity Interns and our teachers!!  We need everyone’s help and participation.  Most importantly, the “Big Give Envelope Drive” gets more money to the classrooms, teachers, and our SIX Amity Interns!  Fall, Winter, Spring

  

Book Fair - A wide selection of new releases and great reads are available to purchase in English and Spanish during the book fair. Proceeds support the school library and PTA.
