The following list of major Phoenix fundraisers is provided to our stakeholders. Phoenix receives no Title-I or Special Education funds, but thanks to your generous support, we are able to provide Phoenix children a rich environment in which to learn and work. Thank you.
Phoenix T-Shirts and Sweatshirts are sold in August and/or September each year. The funds are used to support the Music Department with the purchase of props, music, scenery, etc. The funds from T-Shirts also support the Computer Lab through the purchase of licenses and software. Any remaining funds are used to upgrade technology throughout the school.
The Phoenix Book Fair is held each October. The funds are used to purchase the Reading Renaissance licenses that provide Phoenix children the opportunity to access every AR test that the company offers.
Box Tops for Education are collected every year by Mrs. Fuselier. The funds raised through this program are used to support the Music and Choir curriculums as well as the grade level musicals.
Coke fundraisers are held twice a year. One is held in the fall and the other is held in the spring. The funds are used for day to day school operations as well as for technology upgrades.
The PTO Fundraiser is held each fall. The funds are used to provide every Phoenix teacher with $300.00 each year to use in her classroom to support the education of her students. They provide every Phoenix classroom with $150.00 each year to use for trophies and awards for each grade’s Awards Ceremony in May. In addition, they provide $2,400.00 for the purchase of new books each year for your children to check out of the library. They also provide funds for day-to-day school operations. The majority of this funding goes to the purchase of copy paper for three machines, plus toner and repairs for two other machines. Other operational expenses vary - from buying supplies for a big PBIS party for the students – to the purchase of a few bags of sand at Lowe’s to “weight” the base of a basketball goal recently donated to our Kindergarten classes – to the acquisition of another wireless headset for Ms. T to use in the gym (when the old one broke) - and everything in between. Finally, the PTO also provides funds for special projects. In the last three years, PTO funds have purchased 31 computers to update Mrs. Young’s Computer Lab, 31 more computers to build a new Computer Lab in Wing B, and software for 31 donated computers that now make up a third computer lab in the Library. This year the PTO will focus on beautification of the Campus.
