Fundraising

Why does the PTA need to Fundraise?

The Ben Rush PTA (Parent Teacher Association) is an important part of the Ben Rush Elementary School community. Its purpose is to create a partnership between parents and teachers to support all students. The Ben Rush PTA works to enrich our school programs through classroom support & enrichment activities that the school district and Washington State do not fully pay for. All moneys raised comes from the generous donations of families, friends, and students of the Ben Rush school community.
