Eagle Rush 2020-21

posted Jan 15, 2021, 12:03 PM by Curtner PTA President   [ updated Jan 15, 2021, 12:34 PM ]

When? Feb 1st, 2021 - Feb 7th , 2021

What is it? The Eagle Rush is a jog-a-thon. The Premiere Fundraising Event for the Curtner Elementary School Parent Teacher Association.  It promotes health, fitness, parent involvement and community. Find out more by visiting the Eagle Rush Website. We appreciate your generosity.

Why do we need to raise funds? As you're probably well aware of, school funding is always a challenge. California changed the way it funds schools in 1978, and suddenly budgets were cut in half from one year to the next. As a result, many programs were cut and the full comprehensive curriculums we had known became a thing of the past. Private organizations like PTA stepped in to help bridge that gap. This year is specially challenging.

Where does you money go? Check out our budget to find out.

>>> We won't be doing sales based fundraising (example: chocolate, candles, cookie dough, etc.). We only do one BIG fundraiser, the Eagle Rush and one Donation Drive, plus we partner with local businesses like restaurants to raise funds.

Happy Holidays from Us!

Curtner PTA would like to wish you very Happy Holidays and a safe and healthy 2021.

We leave you with this video. Enjoy!
