ISLA PTO Fundraising Opportunities

Fundraising activities enable the PTO & ISLA to fund many initiatives, including curriculum/supply money for our teachers, funding for Family Nights and extra-curricular activities, and the Language Ambassador (LA) program.  LAs are native Spanish speakers from Spanish-speaking countries who come to ISLA to help in our classrooms, familiarize the students with more native Spanish speakers, and share their culture with our students.  Thanks to last year's fundraising efforts, we have been able to bring six LAs to ISLA this year!

We are always open to suggestions or other ideas...or more volunteers to help with fundraisers, grants and events!  Please contact info@isla-pto.org for more information. 
 

There are many ways to support ISLA and the ISLA PTO.  Here is an A-Z list of ongoing fundraisers.
