Pledge with the Chaboya PTSA

Make a Difference in Your Child's Education

August 2017

Dear Parents,

Chaboya PTSA welcomes you to the start of the 2017 – 2018 school year! We need EVERYONE's help to fill the ever increasing holes left by state budget cuts to ensure that our children receive a quality education. Your participation in our annual pledge drive - The Chaboya Challenge - will help make this happen.

In order to meet the goals listed below, we suggest/recommend every family to donate a contribution of at least $100 per child (one-time contribution for the entire school year) during our Chaboya Challenge Membership Drive.

This year, the Chaboya PTSA has budgeted $100,000 for programs that directly benefit our students. 98% of the budget goes directly to programs and materials that improve your child's instructional experience. Falling short of our target will mean additional fundraising throughout the school year. Please step in and make your contribution now!

These programs are only partially funded by the school district and are made available at Chaboya Middle School by your direct and generous contributions.
