Fundraising

 

Armstrong PTA has a committee dedicated to raising money to help continue our efforts to support the students and the school itself.  As PISD faces a huge budget deficit, the gap is widening every year with funds the school has available and the needs that arise.  Parents, extended families, our community in general, and local businesses can help!  The money we raise helps sponsor events, programs, and supplies for the students and the school as a whole.  Consider helping out--whether it's brainstorming ideas, manning a bake sale table, buying fundraising items, or promoting an event, every person can help in some way!  Join the PTA Fundraising Committee today and make a difference!
