FUNDRAISING – HUFFMAN PTA 2020-2021

 

Huffman Parent-Teacher Association is a non-profit organization uniting staff, teachers and families at our school with the common goal of enriching the lives of our students and community.  Historically, our funds have been used for events improvements affecting all of our little scholars, such as classroom equipment, cultural nights, teacher wish lists, mobile museums, author visits, field trips, playground equipment, the school garden, and much more! 

 

Fundraising efforts this year at Huffman will look a little different.  We have previously relied on two big fundraisers to meet the operating needs of our organization:  our Dance-a-Thon, and our Online Auction.  We are still hoping to find a way to host both fundraisers, but in the meantime, there are some small things you can do to help our school.  This year, our organization will shift our focus more to outreach and to meeting as many of the social and emotional needs of our students and families as we can this year.  To do this, we need your help.  Every little bit matters and is appreciated!

Huffman Silent Auction

Every year the PTA hosts an online auction where 100% of the proceeds benefit the PTA and our students!
