Dear Queen Anne Elementary Family:
Welcome to the 2013-14 school year! We know it is going to be a great year and we thank you in advance for all that you do to support your kids and your school.
QAE is educating our children to be compassionate, creative, self-directed learners and the PTSA is here to help support that mission. The QAE PTSA raises funds to supplement what is NOT covered by the school district or the state budget—where Washington State ranks 43rd in spending-per-pupil. Our school community is committed to providing an exceptional education, and our fundraising efforts ensure your child will benefit from:
In order to continue funding these programs, we need your help – now! The Explorer Fund Drive is one of three QAE PTSA fundraising events and is the only fundraising event where the PTSA makes a direct appeal to your family for a donation. Your 100% tax-deductible gift (plus company match, if applicable) will help support the mission and future of Queen Anne Elementary.
Your contribution is critical to sustain and expand this impact. Please support our students today! Give what you can – every dollar helps and will go to good use! Complete the enclosed pledge card now and return it by October 31, 2013.
Thank you in advance for your generosity.
