Why Family Donations?

The Annual Fund is where our community gets to shine and show our collective spirit of generosity. Keeping in mind that our fundraising overall represents about $300 per student, we need to come together as a community and give generously where we can. Each family participating in whatever way is meaningful to them is just as important as how much money we raise. Getting as close to 100% participation as possible is a core goal for our PTO. Your involvement generates enthusiasm and encourages others to join in.

Why Family Participation?

Family Participation is vital for our school to continue to provide the wonderful fieldtrips and volunteer supported programs, but at the heart it is a chance to celebrate our children, teachers, and support all of programs we value here at Ocean Shore. It’s also a wonderful way for us to strengthen community. Our community is built on parent involvement and we thank you for ALL that you do.
