About this fundraiser:

Serene Lake Elementary is a school where students learn to believe in themselves and one another in order to thrive academically, socially, and emotionally. Creating a culture of kindness creates a welcoming environment so our children feel good about the place they call their school. We believe that this is because of the incredible students that attend our school, the awesome staff who believe that relationships with students are key to optimal learning, and equally importantly is the incredible support of our families.

We could not engage in the wonderful learning opportunities and the
fun things we do here without your monetary support. Please know that NO amount is too small. Your ongoing backing and support are both truly appreciated.

Starting THIS YEAR, we are switching up the prizes so the whole
school can celebrate our accomplishments! When the school hits -

$5,000 - The school will earn music party at recess!

$7,500 - The school earns Otter Pops!

$10,000 - Ollie the Otter will come hang out at recess!

$12,500 (our Goal amount) - The school school will earn a popcorn party!!!!

Your donations will help pay for:

PTSA events like Spooktacular, Ollie's Fest, & Movie Nights

School Support like teacher grants, recess/music/tech funds

Community Outreach Programs like kindness and diversity
