What is the Bobcat Fund?

Rather than conducting catalog sales or other selling activities, we ask for direct financial support from parents and community members to help fund the many programs that the PTSA will provide for our school.  As a new school, we are starting from scratch.  Funding these programs is expected to cost over $80,000 this year.

We are asking for a contribution of $150 per student or $250 per family to help with this cost, but any contribution is greatly appreciated. Every dollar counts! 

 

What does the PTSA provide?

The Clara Barton PTSA will provide educational enrichment opportunities along with supplies and equipment beyond what the school district provides. Great programs like these depend on strong financial support from our Clara Barton community and enthusastic parent volunteers
