Winter Grants Awarded

Do you ever wonder how the PTA money that is raised is actually put into action? Funding Teacher Grants is just one of the many important line items in our budget. Each grant cycle (Fall, Winter, Spring) we award up to $2,000 in grant money. Teachers and staff submit grant applications with a maximum request of $500, and the PTA Executive Board reviews the applications with a goal of funding as many projects as possible within the allotted budget. This cycle, we were able to award grants for all of the applications received!

Fundraising Update: 18/19 Budget Funded!

Each year, SLE PTA focuses our Fundraising efforts to fund the approved budget for the school year by November 1st. We are pleased to announce that our results with the 2nd Annual Boosterthon Fun Run and the Fall Ball: Dia de Fiesta, have achieved that important milestone!

Throughout the year you will see Spirit Night events that will help us support our community and raise additional funds that will allow us to support our students and teachers outside of what is planned in our line item budget.

We sincerely appreciate your support in making Silver Lake THE Place to Be!

THANK YOU to all of our volunteers for the 17/18 school year!

SLE is the place to be! Why? We have amazing teachers and campus leadership, a diverse and awesome group of students, and a strong network of dedicated parents that volunteer in so many ways! Thank you our President, Pam Tink and our PTA Executive Board and Committee Chairs! Thank you to our Room Parents, workroom volunteers, library and classroom volunteers, float builders, and Dad’s Club helpers! Thank you to those that sent in extra school supplies, food for food drives, items for the Angel Tree at Christmas, sponsored a student for a field trip, etc. It all matters! It all helps! We appreciate you!
