Kentwood Elementary needs your financial help to bridge the gap between the LAUSD budget and what we need to run a successful and thriving school program. Last year our families donated $20,000 which helped support our Technology Teacher, Field Trips, and Classroom Supplies. Our additional fundraising contributes the rest of what our PTO funds: School Beautification, Science Lab Program for 5th graders, Music program (Kinder through 2nd graders), Playground equipment and more! The cost for everything the PTO funds is approximately $360 per student!
Our Annual Giving goal for 2017 -18 school year is $30,000. If we can hit this number, we can expand our new Music program to additional grades, and do more School Beautification! We also really want a nice shade structure to cover the playground - but need your financial help!
We have four different levels of donation this year and have made it easy with the option to do monthly payments (less than a car payment!) Please consider investing in our school, the community and most importantly YOUR STUDENT!
