The PTA funds many enrichment initiatives for Lewis and Clark students.We provide money for projects that support the students' academic, artistic, cultural, and physical development; that help meet students' basic needs; that improve students' and teachers' access to and understanding of technology; and that foster inclusiveness and the celebration of diversity.The PTA's largest funded program is paying for the salary of the Family Resource Center (FRC) and supporting the ongoing operation of this very valued program. The PTA provides $6000.00 to teacher grants used for field trips and special classroom supplies, $500.00 for staff appreciation, $500.00 to maintain the outdoor discovery core, financial support of the EAST program and much, much more. Over the last few years, every grade level has benefitted by money raised by and provided by the PTA.Requests for funds over $150 will be reviewed 2 times a year, at the October, and March PTA meetings.
