Contributing to the PTA is easy.  A $150 contribution is the suggested annual donation amount per family.  However, every contribution counts, and we urge you to give what you can.  Consider this: Our 2013-14 budget of approximately $170,000 is approximately $150 per student. These funds allow the PTA to finance critical school activities and programs, including:
  • Edline
  • Sports teams and clubs
  • Annual musical production
  • Community service programs
  • International student travel
  • 6th-grade orientation
  • Annual team-building trips for all 6th-graders
  • 8th-grade promotion reception
  • Grants to teachers to buy supplies to support classroom instruction, technology, Viking Time and other student activities
  • Grants to teachers to pursue professional development
  • Stipends to teachers who serve as grade-level team leaders or as department chairs for their extra responsibilities
  • Deal website
  • Online and print newsletters
  • Deal directory
  • New books and supplies for the library
  • Parent education workshops
  • Improvements to the school building and grounds

These programs help make Deal the exceptional school that it is. But the PTA cannot do all this without you. Please support the PTA by making some contribution, at any level, TODAY! –>Contribute online now!
