How does the PTA at SKCEE work?
We are able to offer all of the above programs and by awesome parent volunteer support and by raising money throughout the year with various events and initiatives, some of which are listed below. SKCEE PTA fundraising goal: $50K for the year (wow!)

  • SKCEE Scamper: Fall FUNdraiser: jog-a-thon by SKCEE Students, our biggest fundraising event, recruiting Community Sponsors, Silent Auction
  • Spring Fling: Spring FUNdraiser, community-wide fair at the school with activities, games, food, tie-dye, music and lots of fun!

So, now that you know about the SKCEE PTA, where can you start? How do you get involved?

  • Join the PTA! Email: knightCEEPTA@gmail.com with your name and email address; visit Square to pay annual dues: https://squareup.com/market/skcee-pta. Membership dues are $10 that goes into the SKCEE PTA general fund. To vote at PTA meetings you must be a member. You don’t have to be a member to participate or volunteer!
  • Read the SKCEE PTA updates and volunteer your time (any level of involvement is appreciated!)
    Talk with other PTA parents about what you’d like to do, where you have talents that could benefit SKCEE, and offer time as a volunteer.
  • First PTA Meeting: Wednesday August 29th 5:30-6:30 pm at the school. We are sorry that this overlaps with Steele’s back-to-school night, the beginning of the year is difficult to schedule with all the new school activities.
