Your PTA and school administration are organizing the Health-A-Thon to raise funds to pay for our beautiful school garden and the Education Outside program. Education Outside provides a full time AmeriCorps teacher at the school to transform our garden into an outdoor classroom where students learn hands-on science. We hope to raise $20,000. Funds raised over PTA approved program budget will be donated back to the school.

Buri Buri has 611 students. We can reach our goal if every student raises at least $32.74. 
We hope you will generously support this fundraiser!

When you are finished fundraising, please turn in your donation envelopes to the PTA box in the office or your child’s teacher. 
Donations are due by March 16, 2018.

Extra donation envelopes are in the office. Or you can print this donation form and use any envelope:

Please make checks payable to Buri Buri PTA

The PTA is a 501c3 organization so all donations are tax deductible. Please contact  if you would like a donation receipt for tax purposes. 

Our amazing 5th grade students in Mrs. Stone's class made this powtoon about our school garden. Please check it out!
