We keep our fundraising strategy simple with two major fundraisers each year. Your generous donations help us avoid product sale fundraising, and still provide our children with amazing specialty teacher and enriching activities throughout the year.

  • The Annual Parent Giving Campaign is the opportunity for Pacific Rim families to make a one-time donation to the Friends of Pacific Rim PTO

  • The Jogathon is opportunity for Pacific Rim students to solicit donations from extended family, friends, neighbors, and the community at large

As a 501c3 organization, all donations made to Friends of Pacific Rim PTO are tax-deductible, and go directly to supporting programs at Pacific Rim Elementary including:

  • Classroom and Teacher Support (Classroom supplies, field trips, professional development)

  • Student Enrichment Programs (Technology Teacher, Chrome Cart, Art Masters, Computer Lab/Tech, Garden, Green Team, Science Day, Young Readers)

  • Credentialed Assistants/Enrichment Teachers (Credentialed Assistants K-3, Art Teacher, PE Teacher, Science Teacher, The Literacy Connection)

  • Student Programs (Playground Pals, Principal Award Box, Planner, Yearbook, 5th Grade Promotion, Lunch Bunch)

  • Community Events (Carnival, Family Evening Events, Red Ribbon Week)
