William Alvey PTA
Let's hope we hope we get the opportunity to organise a few more events this year... We are going to start with the Pumpkin Carving Competition. The 31st October is actually the Sunday before we come back to school after half term, so bring in your pumpkins on Monday morning, 1st November and we will put them on display. 50p per entry.
Our PTA events last year were somewhat curtailed... but they did manage a hugely successful pumpkin trail which raised £476.
PTA AGM Tuesday 19th October 7.30pm in School.
Welcome to the PTA
If you are a parent or guardian of a child attending the William Alvey School then you are automatically members of the PTA along with any member of staff . As a member you are entitled to attend the regular committee meetings that are frequently held either at the Solo Club Sleaford or at the School . At these meetings you are welcome to put forward any suggestions for fundraising and how to spend the funds raised by the PTA.
We really look forward to seeing you there !!
How do we raise money?
For the last couple of years we have raised money from school discos , Christmas fair, Chocolate bingo night, quiz night , cake sales , bags to school and the sale of drinks, sweets etc at various functions.
How is the money spent?
Last year money raised by the PTA was spent on subsidising trips for every year group, sports equipment, new musical instruments and musical equipment, new goal posts , french dictionaries and the Year 6 leaving activities and yearbooks.
As well as these PTA run events fundraising can also be achieved using the following:
