Stillwater PTSA Is Better With You! 

2019/2020 Year In Review:

  1. $5,000 in Field Trip Grants
  2. $19,000 on Playground Equipment - down payment for the replacement of large playground that before COVID was planned for the summer of 2020
  3. $9,700 in Staff Grants
  4. We were 318 PTSA members strong last year and won a WSPTA award for 100% staff membership.

Total Raised: $53,000*

*Our total income for 2019-2020 was impacted by remote schooling last spring and the lack of our spring fundraiser, the Hawk Walk. But we cut back on planned expenses to end the year where we needed to.

Where Does the Money Go?
Field Day, PBIS, Talent Show, Moms & Me, Dads & Donuts, Assemblies, Training, Dance Lady, Staff Appreciation Week, Popcorn, Kinder playdate, LEGO Night, PE/Music/Library/Art Enrichment, Classroom Gifts (supply money for classroom teachers), Legislative Assembly, Playground Upgrades, Staff Grants, Field Trips, All Arts Day, AND SO MUCH MORE!**

**Please note that the 2020-2021 school year will be unlike any other year we've experienced before. Our budget that was approved in June 2020 was based on "normal school" and will be revamped before the September general membership meeting. To see our budget numbers visit stillwaterptsa.org/ptsa-budget/.
