McGilvra Elementary PTA hosting annual fundraiser

The McGilvra Elementary Parent Teacher Association is hosting its McGilvra Annual Fund Drive through February.

The annual fund drive is the major fundraising effort that the PTA undertakes each year. Since tax dollars do not provide enough funds to fully cover the cost of educating the students, the money raised through the annual fundraiser provides critical dollars that supplement the educational experience for McGilvra students.

McGilvra’s specialists, academic tutors and art program are available because of the additional support provided by the PTA and through donations by parents and members of the community.

This year, the PTA is setting out to raise $200,000, which is the amount of the PTA’s current budget, plus an additional 5 percent for inflation.

Residents who would like to lend their support should consider making a gift to the McGilvra Annual Fund Drive at
