In the past, both The Soaring Owls Foundation (SOFi) and the Bolton PTA have raised money for Bolton Academy, but this year we’re shaking things up! SOFi and the PTA have joined forces to streamline fundraising at Bolton Academy. Instead of running multiple fundraisers, SOFi will increase their focus on fundraising to allow the PTA to focus on parent engagement and soliciting volunteers to make each of our events the very best they can be for our families. Going forward, your donations to SOFi will fund our PTA and its many amazing programs such as our Parent Empowerment Nights, teacher and staff appreciation events, community outreach events and some of our most popular school-wide events throughout the year like the Fall Festival, BINGO Night and the Student Showcase. This is all in addition to initiatives that SOFi funds to support capital improvements and other programs that empower Bolton Academy students and teachers to achieve high levels of excellence.
As a result of this joint initiative, your SOFi donation will not only include PTA membership but will also help fund the following important items:
- Teacher Professional Development, including Leadership Initiatives
- Educational Initiatives
- State PTA Membership Dues
- Parent Empowerment Nights and Workshops
- Schoolwide Events like our Back-to-School BBQ, Fall Festival, annual BINGO Night and Student Showcase
- Staff and Teacher Appreciation
- Community Outreach Events
- International Baccalaureate Training, Support and Materials
- Curriculum Enrichment
- Teacher Reimbursements for Educational Materials
- Playground Upgrade and New Field Improvements
- Cultural Events and Field Trips
Your first opportunity to give is coming up next...!
