As a community, we have promised to infuse
almost $40,000 into our school this year through
the PTO’s 2014-2015 Annual Budget. Since its inception in 2007, the GIFT FOR BURR has been the primary source of funds for the annual budget. These funds bring our children the new technology, enriching programs, and academic supports that the Newton Public Schools alone cannot provide. Our goal is to raise $35,000 and achieve 100% participation from the Burr community by December 1, 2014.
How much you give is up to you! If every family contributes $150, we will easily meet our budget. Families who are able and inspired to contribute more are encouraged to do so. Still, we wish to emphasize that our greatest desire is to have every Burr family make a contribution – whether it is at, above, or below the $150 mark. Whether you can give $1 or $1000, we ask you to participate to help us meet our goal of EVERY family at Burr making a contribution.
EVERY child at Burr benefits from GIFT FOR BURR.
YOUR participation counts.
You may be asking – Why so much? Why should I contribute? The GIFT FOR BURR page on our website will answer these questions and more (you can make an online donation while you’re there, or send a check in to school in your child’s folder.) Burr School is a strong, involved, and vibrant community – one that relies on the essential academic support and enriching programs your donation provides. Your support is crucial. Please consider this a gift from you to your child.
