Invest in Your Child
Invest in Your Child 2015-2016
Conerly Road School (CRS) is setting high educational standards for our children. In order to ensure
that our goals are met, we must all work together to raise the funds necessary to bridge the gap
between the needs of our school and what the district provides.
Traditional Fundraising
The traditional fundraising efforts of the PTO have benefited each and every one of our children in
the past...and that’s exactly why we do it.
We've all been asked to buy and/or sell candy, cookie/pizza dough, wrapping paper, etc. in an
effort to raise money for our school. You may have wondered why in the world we have to have
fundraiser after fundraiser every single year. Well, the fact of the matter is, in order to support our
children and our school, we must raise funds.
We’ve come to understand that some of our parents actually enjoy traditional fundraising, while
others would rather contribute in “another way.” Well, with the “Invest in Your Child” campaign, you
now have more options.
A New and Different Approach
Unlike traditional fundraising, done through product sales, 100% of the money raised through the
“Invest in Your Child” campaign goes to benefit Conerly Road School. With this approach, there’s no
profit-sharing with third-party vendors, which enables us to provide even more to our students (i.e.
assemblies, class trips, books for their classrooms and various CRS community events like Field Day,
the Science Fair, and Autumn Fest just to name a few).
Hundreds of schools across the country have adopted the “Invest in Your Child” approach and have
eliminated the need for traditional fundraising all together. We’re not sure we’re there yet, or if we
even want to be, we just want to provide our parents with comprehensive options to enable you to
contribute and make a difference in our school; thus, enhancing the educational experience of our
children.
Here’s how “Invest in Your Child” works:
It’s definitely a simpler approach to fundraising.
1. You make a donation payable to the CRS PTO for the current (2014-2015) school year, which
may be tax deductible. You can donate in one lump sum payment or divide it into 6 monthly
payments.
2. Your monetary contribution will be used to meet the needs of our children and our school.
Benefits of Contributing
Whatever amount you decide to contribute, you can rest assure that your donations will be used to
enrich your child’s learning experience at CRS this year and for years to come.
We will be working closely with Dr. Burnett and her staff throughout the school year to identify and
prioritize the educational needs and requirements of our school. We will be transparent and disclose
how each dollar is spent.
We have made a strong commitment to our children and have already allocated a large portion of
funds to purchase new books for the library and classrooms, as well as equipment for the school,
provide test preparation courses & educational assemblies, and supplement field trips through our
new PTO budget.
The following are a few ways the PTO funds have been used in the past:
• Assemblies
• School Equipment
• Ceremonies (Pre-K and 4th Graders)
• Staff Appreciation
• Classroom/Library books & supplies
• Supplement Field Trips
• CRS Community events
• Teacher Grants
• School Beautification
How to Participate
Complete the response form and return it to school with your check as soon as possible. The sooner
you contribute, the sooner we can put these dollars to work for your child. Be sure to ask
grandparents, relatives and friends to make a contribution too. Remember, if you choose the “Invest
in Your Child” fundraising option, then you’ve already done your part and you won’t be asked to buy
or sell anything this year! Also, did you know that some companies offer matching funds programs?
Please check to see if your employer matches educational contributions. Every dollar is so important!

Thank you for investing in your child.
Together we can “Hop to The Top!”
