Arbor Heights Direct Drive Campaign

The Arbor Heights Elementary School Direct Drive Campaign is happening NOW!  
What a time we are facing right now.  It is still difficult to accept that our kids have not physically been in the school building since March.  We, as parents, and our kids, as students, miss the in person interaction of the Arbor Heights community dearly, and we know our incredible teachers and staff miss it even more.  This year's Direct Drive Campaign will have a different approach in light of these unprecedented times.  

Our goal is to raise $20,000 to support remote learning priorities.  With almost 600 students we are the largest Elementary School in the SPS District.  With community support, we believe we can easily achieve this goal.  

What does my donation support?

Activities that enrich our students’ academic experiences, may include, but are not limited to: 

  • student learning packets (the printing, assembly and distribution of)
  • supplies enabling teachers to effectively teach remotely from home (i.e. white board, printer)
  • new library books 
  • Specialist materials for students to do hands on projects 
  • online professional development for our teachers
  • communication tools to keep our commuity connected and informed
  • virtual assembly speakers
  • tutoring 
  • mentoring passion projects 
  • additional counselor time
  • strong social-emotional curriculum for when in-person school returns 

New this year!  We are offering some Arbor Heights branded items for an extra thank you.  
At different giving levels you will receive an Arbor Heights Seahawks supporter ipad/laptop sticker (similar to the ones on the remote learning boxes) and/or a children's Arbor Heights Seahawk mask.  These will be distributed in early January.  

Why is my donation important?  

The great thing about the Direct Drive Campaign is that your gift, no matter what amount, has a positive impact on our community and makes a statement showing support for our teachers' hard work towards adapting to a challenging remote learning environment.  

Rather than having several small fundraisers or selling products, we are asking families to make a direct donation to maximize our ability to financially support our school and its families in an efficient way.  These are challenging times where many families are struggling, so we understand if you are not able to contribute financially this year.  For those who are in a position to make a donation, any amount, large or small, makes a difference towards our mission of supporting the students, the families, and the staff of the Arbor Heights community.

Please send this link to grandparents, neighbors, family and friends so they can contribute to these efforts and our community as well. 

Don't forget!  You can double your gift if your employer matches donations to charitable organizations.  All donations are tax-deductible (ID # 91-1447769). 

Why do we need to have a Direct Drive Campaign?
The Arbor Heights PTSA funds many activities and programs that enrich our kid's education. These funds only come from two sources: the Direct Drive Campaign, and the Annual Auction (tbd this year). These funds ensure continuity of programs and activities from quarter to quarter and year to year. 

We are grateful for your support!  Thank you for helping us continually provide our kids with the best possible education and experiences!
