PTA Spring Membership Drive and Contest
Want to save time and skip lines on Tiger Day? Then join the PTA now during our Spring Membership Drive! The PTA funds nearly 30 wonderful programs at East Side, so your support is crucial in seeing these activities continue
The following can be purchased in advance of Tiger Day:
- PTA membership packages that will give you access to our online directory and calendar and also provide a tax-deductible donation (in lieu of year-round fundraising). There is also an option to purchase a $5 PTA membership, per person.
- Preorder your student’s 2016-2017 yearbook at the presale price of $25.
The PTA is holding a membership contest among grades over the next 3 weeks, from April 11th – April 29th. The class in each grade with the most memberships at the end of the contest will win a popsicle party. In addition, families who purchase membership packages by May 31st will be entered into a drawing for the PTA Parking Spot for August and September of the upcoming school year!
All memberships and purchases will be sold online through Membership Toolkit using the link below. Be sure that you have all of your East Side students listed in Membership Toolkit with their current grade and teacher so their class is given credit for your membership purchase.
