How We Raise Money



Together, we sponsor many programs and activities for our students, parents, and staff.

Please consider helping us do this by making a donation today.







Did you know that volunteering at the Thrift Shop is our school’s biggest money maker? In past years, we’ve brought in close to $26,000. That’s a big chunk of the PTA’s budget, yet a drop in the bucket compared to other Chatham County schools, some of which have brought in nearly $50,000. Wow! Imagine what our school could do with an extra $10,000, $20,000 or $30,000! Click here to learn more about the thrift shop and to sign up for a work session.
