Fund RaisingHow do we fund our enrichment programs?Rather than ask our students to sell candy or wrapping paper, or participate in any door-to-door sales, each year we ask our parents to contribute through our Friends of Green Oaks (FOGO) Program.
FOGO – Friends of Green Oaks Incentive Program
The PTA revised the FOGO Program, last year, and there are some fun and fashionable incentives AND the opportunity to earn a homework pass for your student. Please read the PTA Welcome Packet (available in the office) for details on all things PTA, and remember, the PTA supports numerous enrichment programs for Green Oaks and ensures our students do not have to participate in door-to-door fundraising. FOGO is one of our largest fundraisers and we need your support!PTA MembershipGreen Oaks Parent Teacher Association (PTA)
The PTA Welcome Packet includes the PTA membership envelope and information. If you return the envelope, whether or not you join, your student will earn ten Beaver Bucks – please complete and return as soon as possible. The first 200 people who sign up will also receive, with their membership card, free ice cream at Leatherby's. Five of the ten dollars for membership supports Green Oaks directly and the other five are dues for the National PTA, ensuring reduced insurance rates and additional benefits for our school. For additional details, please refer to the PTA website at: www.pta.org
