Eastside School’s Parent, Teacher, Kids (PTK) group is an essential component of Eastside’s community. Volunteers provide support to many school-related activities and programs. Their financial support and active involvement are Eastside’s most valuable resources.
PTK raises money through various events throughout the year, by collecting box tops, hosting a Dominos fundraiser in November, hosting a Walk-a-Thon in April and other events throughout the year. PTK then votes on how to spend the money raised. This money goes to Eastside’s teachers and their classrooms, kids in need of supplies, summer programs, the 5th Grade Ski Day to Sleeping Giant, and Scholarships for Eastside’s High School graduates.
The goals of PTK are to encourage school and community pride, assist students and families and participate in fundraising events to support one significant purchase or project each year. Community members are always welcome to attend the PTK meeting which takes place on the 2nd Tuesday of every month at 3:20pm.
