The following are the main ways that the PTU raises money to fund our programs, giveaways and events. The more successful our fundraisers are, the more we are able to give back to our school community. We are so grateful for your support!

Not Fundraisers

Not everything the PTU accepts money for is a fundraiser for our organization. In fact, the goal for our family events is to break even overall (while we may make income on some events we lose money on others) in an effort to make all of our events as affordable as possible for our school families.

  • Family Movie Night

  • Father/Son Event

  • Mother/Daughter Event

  • Breakfast in Bethlehem Event

  • Winter Event

  • Father/Daughter Event

  • Mother/Son Event

  • School Supply Boxes
