Dance-A-Thon is 1 Week Away

The November 10th Marguerita PTA Dance-A-Thon (DAT) is less than a week away, and we urgently need your support. We have only raised 11% of our $26,000 fundraising goal. Please donate $30 or more today to help PTA support Marguerita's students and teachers!

This has been a difficult unprecedented school year for everyone. Distance learning has not been easy - but we are all persevering because we must. The PTA remains committed to supporting students and teachers through this pandemic. Over the summer, the PTA worked hard to acquire a competitive National PTA $5,000 grant to fund creative online workshops and a couple of virtual assemblies to support our students during distance learning, all at no cost to you.

But we need your help now. While the PTA will try to continue to support what we can with remaining funds from last year's fundraising efforts, it is not enough. Without you, the PTA will be forced to cut our budget or entirely eliminate funding for programs that we usually support every year -- virtual field trips, Rockstar and Good Guys Awards, R.O.C.K. Program, 8th grade promotion activities, and scholarships.

You can help us by fundraising for the Dance-A-Thon, or making a donation to support your child. With approximately 850 students at Marguerita School, we are asking each student to fundraise at least $30. If you may help fundraise, steps are detailed at https://dat.margueritapta.org/students. Or, please donate $30 (or whatever amount you are able to contribute) at https://marguerita.walkstarter.org.
